A visibly angry President Gotabaya Rajapaksa lashed out at Central Bank officials today accusing them of shirking in their duties and not doing their part to take forward his economic policies.

During a meeting with CB officials at the Presidential Secretariat , the President said that the country cannot let the health crisis develop into an economic crisis and said that the lack of initiatives by CBSL to revive economy is appalling.

“I will not allow  CBSL (officials) to shirk their duties.  I have asked for their strategies to revive the economy by tomorrow morning,” the President said on his Twitter handle.
