Wimal Weerawansa and Udaya Gammanpila were not aware of what the government power is and the two were being used by other parties, said Chief Organiser of the Ruling Party Minister Johnston Fernando, addressing the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Women’s Authority Board of the Nikaweratiya Electorate yesterday (06).
“Sadly, some of our friends were not aware of what the government power is. They were caught by other forces. They were being used by other parties. So, one minister came out and said things like, ‘fuel was sufficient only for four or seven days, there were no dollars, dollars were given for grapes and apples, so I have no dollars to import fuel and I will import fuel if I was given dollars..‘ That should have been said inside. Such troubles are usually being caused by the Opposition,” Fernando said.
The Minister added: “Now they are blaming us, saying all sorts of things. They are not problems to us. But we say that we are not only ready to face this challenge but also are ready to solve these problems and build the country for sure.”
