The IMF stated that it has not instructed the government to cut down allocation for the education in the country.

IMF official Todd Schneider who arrived here for a series of discussions over its coordination with the government told this during a media briefing held at the Central Bank this afternoon.

He further said that the IMF would consider the allocations on education as an investment.

Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe recently charged that the government is cutting down allocations on education on the instruction of the IMF.

The opposition leader’s statement came to the center stage after education minister Bandula Gunawardana categorically rejected the allegations.
