Now coming to the present government of President Gotabaya N. Rajapaksa, what did he say or promise when on his election campaign. It yet rings in my ears the loud mouth of Gotabaya Rajapaksa saying –‘Vote for honest, educated candidates to usher in a prosperous era.’ Then what happened the very same party which nominated him to contest the Presidential Elections – SLPP – nominated scoundrels, bribe takers, fraudsters, criminals and worst they were assigned Cabinet portfolios. Couldn’t the President reject the names submitted by Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa. If not, what was the alternative, I leave the readers to arrive at a decision.
It will therefore be seen that the voter, nay the whole country has been fooled, or made donkeys as the saying goes ‘Taken for a ride’ to carry on regardless as events now surface. Once in power they consider what they have received as BOODALAYA – inheritance and do whatever they feel.
