In the public’s intolerance amid the severe pressure, the Rajapaksas have failed and will never come back to power, said Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Kumara Welgama, speaking to reporters on the occasion of the 123rd birthday celebrations of S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike, the founder of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) today (08).
Gotabaya Rajapaksa is incapable of administering a country, Welgama alleged, adding that executive powers must be cut short in order to make a country move forward.
He added that there was no point of cutting short the executive powers via the 19th Amendment to the Constitution and raising the hand back against it on the adaptation of the 20th Amendment, reminding the SLFP’s mistake.
Welgama further noted that he also wished the SLFP to come forward and join him as a leading force in the future.
