It is seen step by step that Sri Lanka, which has reached zero in terms of dollar reserves, is also losing the dollars received from foreign workers.
In order to reveal the truth about this, a discussion was held by senior journalist Mr. Chamuditha Samarawickrama with Mr. Kapila Senaratne, who is currently retired, who was engaged in a gas station business in America.
The main point that was focused on is the reason why the Sinhalese diaspora abroad has stopped sending money to Sri Lanka. Hard earned money is not getting proper value.
The main reason for this is that they are not able to get the money that they earn and deposit in foreign countries, sometimes without eating or drinking, for their needs.
Even though they came to this country and tried to do business, they could not do it because of the mafias that exist in every business sector in this country.
From the statements of Mr. Kapil Senaratne, we will understand that the people who are controlling the dollars and making decisions especially as controllers are not the ones who have worked to earn even one dollar for this country and they are a group of people who are only waiting to exploit the sweat and hard work of foreign workers.
Those who leave their family members in Sri Lanka and go to a foreign country, sometimes without even thinking about their lives, and encountering the money they earn after suffering immeasurably, and seeing how the rich and powerful rulers in this country are using it for their own pleasure, they stop sending the wealth they earn to this country. It will not be surprising.
However, if they expect to get more dollars like this, the time has come for the relevant authorities to do some justice for these people who are suffering abroad for the country through a proper program.
