Well-known musician Iraj Weeraratne who resigned from the National Youth Services Board recently says that the politics of the country is very corrupt and miserable and it is unimaginable how many generations it will take to change it.
He states that it was imperative to bring President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to power in 2019 as he could not move forward according to the situation prevailing at that time and he intervened accordingly. Iraj points out that he cannot be held responsible for all the crazy things being done by the present government just by doing so.
Weeraratne says that the “3% group” makes false allegations that he has been assaulted by a son of Mahinda Rajapaksa and that they are spreading false propaganda in an organized manner to deceive the people and achieve their political goals. He states that the reports that he was assaulted are completely false and that he has not even left the house in recent days.
