It was because of what I achieved in the North that President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe now have the opportunity to insult me when they go to the North, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa said.
Addressing a Sathyagraha organized by the joint opposition (JO) he said, “The incumbent government has violated the independence that we acquired after defeating the LTTE. The people’s democratic rights are being violated by postponing the elections”.
“The situation is going from bad to worse. The country is heading towards an autocratic form of governance rather a democratic rule,” the former president Mahinda said. Interestingly there is NO White Vans and kidnapping and killings like we had during Mahindas rule. Journalists, Human Right workers and Tamil politicians were killed by the Sri Lankan forces with the blessings of Rajapakshas government and to date although evidence are shown no one had been punished in the court.
Mahinda wants a new government made of Rajapaksha Family members like under Mahindas rule between 2005 to 2015.
Mahinda was the President of Sri Lanka (2005–2015) and Prime Minister of Sri Lanka (2004–2005) and wants his son Nimal to be the next President of Sri Lanka.
