State Minister Dilum Amunugama responding to reporters yesterday (09) stated that the government’s biggest mistake was protecting former President Maithripala Sirisena and that President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, therefore, will be taking an action soon.
Q: The Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party is severely criticising the government
“The biggest mistake was protecting him. Therefore, the number of people who become mad with us is large. Were the necessary steps taken, it will be over. The President, I think, will be taking an action soon.”
Q: Will it be affecting the existence of the government?
“No, how will it affect the existence of the government? After those who wished to leave left, we formed a new party, gained a two-thirds majority, made Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa the Prime Minister and made his brother the President. So do we need these people to do the rest? It would have been easier if they left.”
