Government is taxing all commodities says Rajapaksa

Sri Lanka's former president, Mahinda Rajapaksa criticised the government today, stating that they had imposed taxes on all commodities. 

Speaking at a religious ceremony at a Buddhist vihara in Kadawatha, Mr Rajapaksa was quoted by Adaderana as saying, "the government might be able to control the public but not the Maha Sangha". 

"Increasing the import tax on small cars is not a strange thing when the government imposed a tax on temple donation boxes," he added, drawing attention to the government's decision to increase import tax on small hybrid cars.
