I’m not in the 118-list: Champika

2 June 2018 02:53 pm - 11     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Megapolis and Western Development Minister Champika Ranawaka yesterday pointed out that he is not among the 118 individuals who received funds from the Central Bank bond scam.

He made this remark while responding to questions from journalists in Kandy. “We are the ones who taught the government to earn money and the ones who raised our voices against corruption. I’m not among those who received money from the bond scam. I don’t know whether you are also among the 118,” he told journalists.

He also emphasised that President Maithripala Sirisena might not be aware of who created ‘100-day-programme but it was issued with their election manifesto for the last Presidential Election.

Minister Ranawaka said the country would become unstable if only the Executive Presidency was changed as it was the core of the Constitution. “Therefore, the entire Constitution should be changed,” he said.

He said that before abolishing the Executive Presidency, a stable parliamentary system should be formed via implementing the old electorate system.

Minister Ranawaka said that he doesn’t like to comment further on what the President said as he is the country’s head. (J.A.L Jayasinghe)

    It is interesting how man dodged the question and spit out a general answer as I am not in the list of those who received BOND SCAM money … did you not ever receive anything from Perceptual Treasuries Arjun Aloysius or any of his affiliates is the question that this man would not be able to answer.

    You are just as corrupt like most of the other politicians. The only difference is you have an arrogance and a superior complex to lie through your teeth.

    The next presidential election ( as 20th Amendment turned down) would be a one that looking for a candidate who at least seems to be clean and capable. Regardless of the minor wrongdoings in your account, you will be a possible candidate, from either side (as there are hardly any sides and GOTA is out due to US tactics). Now try to act as a National Leader instead an extreme nationalistic, as you need to cultivate trust among the minorities. Work close with moderates like Mr. Sumanthiran and others if you to have an opportunity; your dream of Presidency. The rest of the forces will fall into line.Good Luck
