Former Minister Bandula Gunawardhana says that about 70,000 private sector breadwinners have been hit by the super gain tax brought in by the new Government’s interim budget.

Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake participating in the ‘Balaya’ political discussion programme telecast via Hiru TV last night rejected former Minister Gunawardhana’s statement saying that the statistics given by the former Minister were false.

While Finance Minister Ravi Karunaratne and Uva Chief Minister Harin Fernando participated in the Balaya programme telecast yesterday representing the Government, MPs Bandula Gunawardhana and Wijith Vijeyamuni Soysa participated in the programme representing the Opposition.

The following is the discussion that took place between Finance Minister Ravi Karunaratne and MP Bandula Gunawardhana about the Super Gain Tax.
