The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) will present a joint proposal for the 2024 budget, SLPP MP Namal Rajapaksa said. 

Speaking to reporters over the weekend, the former Minister said the joint proposal will be presented together with the other alliance members of the SLPP. 

Rajapaksa revealed that a key element of the proposal is the suggestion to extend the Samurdhi scheme for another year due to certain issues that have cropped up as a result of the quick implementation of the Aswesuma welfare benefit scheme. 

MP Namal Rajapaksa further stated that the SLPP is also focussing on the improvement of the rural economy with the aim of making a greater contribution to the national economy. (NewsWire)
