The hardship and poverty are rapidly increasing and the problems of the people are intensifying

Former President and Sri Lanka Freedom Party leader Maithripala Sirisena has said he does not believe there will be an immediate solution to the problem, despite the fact that people are facing severe economic hardship.

He was speaking to reporters after a meeting of the SLFP's committee at the party's headquarters in Sri Lanka.
