Minister made these comments after providing electricity to the 100 foot road to the trading complex in pettah. During the last two months we had to pay interest using the savings we had. The rupee was devalued since the treasury in USA increased its rates.
The oil prices too shot up from $ 45 to 57 as OPEC decided to limit the oil output. Both these played a pivotal role in devaluing the rupee. We will face a difficult financial situation in the future and therefore the ministries will have to act with responsibility said the minister.
