Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa invited me to join hands with him or to give up politics and join his business but I refused, Primary Industries Minister Daya Gamage said.

Addressing a group of fresh water prawn farmers in Chilaw, the Minister said the former president offered him a Cabinet post but he refused as he had no intention to rob public money.

“I had no intention to rob money belonging to the country, or the public by joining hands with the Rajapaksa regime. Therefore I choose a different path,” he said.

He said President Maithripala Sirisena had given the leadership to save the country from the present predicament, therefore everybody should work together to save the country. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    If Gamage would have joined, then MR would have robbed his wealth too.

    May be as Gamage is a wealthy person, MR would have planned to rob his money too, good he escaped.

    However this is time to think about the country.We are in a critical situation paving way for destruction with establishing powerful provincial councils.As a person loving the country you have to take a serious decision..

    Mahinda's huge loans and commissions in billions on all projects made our country to sink, but MS will bring us back to peak levels.

    Ding Dong Bell Tuesday, 24 October 2017 01:11 PM

    MR became rich by robbing our public money in billions, but MS robbed the hearts of the people whether they are poor or rich.

    What a robber MR was, not only he robbed but inviting others too to rob.

    Ranjith Samarasekera Tuesday, 24 October 2017 08:45 AM

    Daya, if you would have joined with the rotter Mahinda, by now you will be a beggar, good that you did not join with that nasty dictator.

    Prof. Edmund Samaranayake Tuesday, 24 October 2017 08:47 AM

    The whole world knows Mahinda and his family members are (No. 1 looters of Srilanka) and he or his family will never prosper because of the curses fallen upon him and his family.

    GH Tuesday, 24 October 2017 08:47 AM

    SAVE THE COUNTRY? Ha...... Ha..... Ha.....

    johan Tuesday, 24 October 2017 08:57 AM

    We know UNP's attitudes are stinking but MR's side also more stinking.Better find alternative where there is clean politics

    Citizen Tuesday, 24 October 2017 09:18 AM

    You made the right decision because now you are on a highway paved with gold!

    Casanova Tuesday, 24 October 2017 09:38 AM

    MARA is becoming a joke day by day, it is high time for him to wear pants so at least he can put his hands inside the pockets.

    Belive me Tuesday, 24 October 2017 11:47 AM

    If you don't like to be with Robbers why not quit UNP to be honest
