Looking to modernise Mahinda Chinthanaya: Gota

Former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa has said that they are continuing to discuss with professionals from all social spheres on how to carry forward the 'Mahinda Chinthanaya' based on current trends and developments.

He told a conference organised by the 'Eliya' Organisation at Kaduwela on Sunday that the views of professionals were important to resolve contentious issues and carry out development projects when a new government assumes office.

Mr. Rajapaksa said this government had misled the people and fed them with lies to win the previous elections but has no plans whatsoever for administering the country.

"It did not have a proper mechanism or a plan to administer the country when they took office. That is why the country is in turmoil today. The former government however, administered the country based on a set of principles under the Mahinda Chinthanaya," he said.

Mr. Rajapaksa said the stakeholders in the government should take the responsibility for the current economic crisis.

“We had plans to develop the ports and airports. This government stopped these projects. With the economic collapse, these projects have slowed down," Mr.Rajapaksa said.

He said all pillars of society including the security, law and order and the economy had collapsed during the 4-year tenure of the new government.

MPs Gamini Lokuge, Susil Premajayantha, Udaya Gammanpila and Wimal Weerawansa were present at the event. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    We can scold MR and Gotta and say they looted or whatever but we must not forget, the war was over and highways done, Colombo beautified.....They did something that we could feel and you can't deny that.....

    long memory Monday, 01 October 2018 06:33 PM

    Oh we felt it all right. and will REALLY feel it if these fellows come back

    Lal Monday, 01 October 2018 07:04 PM

    Construction of the Highways began before they came to power

    raj Monday, 01 October 2018 11:24 PM

    they did on borrowed money and we are now paying the interest

    Dudley Senanayeke Monday, 01 October 2018 11:40 PM

    The war was over. Though made Colombo beautiful, they should have done with CMS not with the Army. They should have change the (commission )bribery system. They think others stupid. Now people are fed up with all politicians.

    If you give me Rs100 for a work that cost Rs25 to finish off beautifully, then I will make sure all are happy. And remember while I put the remaining in my pocket, you pay interest on Rs100 borrowed.

    Minhinda Chinthana is another synonym for robbing. Find a new one and we will think about it then. Had enough of Ranil Chinthan and Mahinda Chinthana.

    johan Monday, 01 October 2018 07:42 PM

    Zub Monday, 01 October 2018 05:49 PM

    Gota is telling the truth this Govt promised to put all wrong doers on prison but didn't do it so he got the chance to talk freely today.

    Dhammika Monday, 01 October 2018 05:50 PM

    johan Monday, 01 October 2018 07:43 PM

    Nandimitra Monday, 01 October 2018 08:25 PM

    karthik Monday, 01 October 2018 08:29 PM

    Not only the viesws of the professionals in Sri Lanka but also the views of HRC will do good to modernise Mahinda Chinthanaya.

    gamini Tuesday, 02 October 2018 05:03 PM

    vithura Monday, 01 October 2018 08:40 PM

    Bamunuarachchi Tuesday, 02 October 2018 12:40 PM

    It seems comments in favor of Gotabaya won't publish.

    CNJ Tuesday, 02 October 2018 12:41 PM

    The pillars that GR talks about during the "Chintanaya" was just that a "dream" - the only "pillar" that mattered was a tree...a family tree that blosomed big time!

    Jerome Tuesday, 02 October 2018 12:58 PM

    In New modern version add a clause " listening to astrologers strictly banned" only listen to stargazer.
