Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa said today he was open for discussions with anyone for the sake of the country including President Maithripala Sirisena.

He said this in reponse to a question asked by Daily Mirror during this morning’s live Twitter Q and A session #AskMR.

When asked whether he was ready to talk to President Sirisena with regard to finding solutions to the current issues in the country, Mr. Rajapaksa said he was open for discussions with anyone.

When asked whether foreign countries were interfering in the internal affairs of Sri Lanka, he said there was no need for foreign interference when the government was in the process of implementing the agendas of external parties.

When asked if he believed that all members of his government were corruption-free, Mr. Rajapaksa said anyone can conduct investigations without political motives.

"I trust you have the same concerns about serious corruption allegations against this government," he tweeted.

    If MR "minded" a business, that too would be lost by now due to excessive debts just like for the "sake the country" he ruined.

    Once the war is over the armored car can have a rest. For day to day life you need a normal car.

    Crocodile tears? The present problems will be over if you and your family with your henchmen are jailed.

    Sofia Wednesday, 26 July 2017 08:05 PM

    Absolutely correct. MR IS THE PROBLEM for current problems. If you give up your greed for power and Ranil does not cover you and family for your corruption, My3 can take this country forward nicely.

    This is the mockery that the criminal, who is responsible for the strikes and undermining the decisions of the government in every way, offers his help. Perhaps he wants to establish a commission to promote bribery and extrajudicial killings.

    Ranil is the bigger crook. See the Bond scanndal and his henchaiyas involvement. He isalso the culprit covering up the Rajapakses to divide the SLFP. Very good My3 is now taking control.

    Corrupt pathetic rogue and his corrupt pathetic rogue family who wasted country's money talking crap. Wasting country's money just two examples 1) Sri Lankan Airways 2) Corrupt rogue's equally corrupt wife's Paris wesak trip. The most corrupt political leader Sri Lanka ever saw. The pathetic rogue can fool some but not all, fortunately

    Saving country from LTTE was the work of RANA VIRUVAS and not the work of crooked politicians.
