Meanwhile, Dudley Sirisena has addressed President Ranil and many UNP leaders about his tax compliance. Dudley has pointed out that tax policy should be implemented like a bee takes nectar without crushing the flower.
In Dudley’s speech, the bee is compared to the tax collector and the flower to the businessman. When the bee takes nectar, the pollen is nourished and the fruits are formed, The tax money collected by the government goes to the people in the form of salaries, other payments, etc. and it helps for the development of businesses
Dudley Sirisena has pointed out.
