Has Dr. Weerasinghe forgotten he was also an ex CBSL Deputy Governor?
Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) Dr. Nandalal Weerasinghe in his latest act as the caped crusader of the economic crisis has stated that the values recorded as “foreign workers’ remittances” in the reports issued by the CBSL before 2021 are inadequate, omitting the fact that he was also a Deputy Governor of the country’s monetary regulator from 2011 to 2020.
In general, a CBSL Deputy Governor is handling such statistical data reports, and if the data presented by the CBSL regarding foreign workers’ remittances before 2021 is incorrect, shouldn’t Weerasinghe himself be held accountable for inadequacies of such nature?
Weerasinghe’s deux ex machina attitude towards economic affairs of the country wants the people to believe that he as a man who was born in Australia, served in the Central Bank of Australia and retired was welcomed to become the Chief of another by the President of a small country called Sri Lanka in a mission to rescue its citizens from a seemingly unsolvable recession.
For a state that has suffered too much at the conduct of a so called ‘working hero,’ having another with the same attitude posing as a successor is more than enough to close its chapter as a destroyed nation.
