Former Media Minister during the Mahinda Rajapaksa regime Keheliya Rambukwella today scoffed at the speculations that he was to defect from the Joint Opposition to team up with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) led by President Maithripala Sirisena.

Speaking to the media at his Kundasale residence after a meeting with the candidates of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) contesting the upcoming Local Government elections, Rambukwella said that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa was still a State leader for him.

"Mr. Rajapaksa has gone in the history as the king, who saved the country from the clutches of the terrorism. History will attest to the degree of respect the people pay to him," he added.

Observing the situation in the country he stated that the situation on January 8, 2015 no longer existed and the people were waiting to put an end to the current unfortunate political journey of the country.

"You can't hoodwink the people forever. The leaders of the Government said that they would open a Volkswagen car manufacturing plant and create 100,000 jobs. Now where is the car manufacturing plant? Where are the jobs?" he said.

He said that the SLPP was in a struggling to select candidates for the upcoming elections as 71,000 people were clamouring for slots and that it was with great difficulty that it had selected 8,000. (J.A.L.Jayasinghe)

    Better watch ur step or you might fall off the balcony! What did the Ragapaskse regime do apart from plundering? We still have the last bit confidence with this government. Await the commission result and action on the bond scam!

    Where is the VW car manufacturing plant? Oh! they are worldwide. Where are the jobs? The jobs are created not only in the government sector but also in the private sector. A job is a job. Google for details.

    After 5 years the government will claim they created 1 million jobs without any proofs. Such disgraceful is the leaders of this government

    Unchikun Monday, 25 December 2017 03:01 PM

    Can you please define a job? Ever heard of the terms “big job” and “small job”. Hope you got my point.

    Poor fellows, these cross over types. They dont know whether they are coming or going!

    Raj Karunan Sunday, 24 December 2017 09:52 PM

    They all clamour to get in to take part in bribery and corruption. Don't we know that. Raj

    He hasn't been the same since he fell off the balcony in Australia.

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 25 December 2017 11:39 AM

    Yes and the best is he claimed both from his insurance and also from the Presidents fund plus got compensation from the Hotel also.

    K Perera Monday, 25 December 2017 11:07 AM

    It takes more time, and don't expect such large project to complete in three years.

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 25 December 2017 11:43 AM

    We do not have human work force to fill vacancies anymore. We are a labor glut country. We require foreign workers now even for normal jobs as carpenters and masons. No investor will want to open labor dependent factories in SL.

    oh hello..... Kundasale must be very misty these days! Go back to slumber!

    Hello Keheliya, we know you are going to boot the king who saved from clutch of terrorism come Jan 2018. Get lost man.

    Tharaka Monday, 25 December 2017 05:39 PM

    You should visit Kuliyapitiya and see for yourself. The factory is being built and is expected to be operational by end of 2018.

    Maraya Tuesday, 26 December 2017 11:48 AM

    Hah ha, still believing.I feel sorry about you.

    Sumal Tuesday, 26 December 2017 03:00 PM

    Yes, VW agent in SL Senok is building it.

    Sambo Tuesday, 26 December 2017 08:25 AM

    The only jobs created by any government is three wheeler divers. The cream of the uneducated and lazy guys a menace to the country.

    Martin Milton Tuesday, 26 December 2017 08:25 AM

    Another great big fraud and utterly 'no good' Pollie. I agree with many of the comments here detrimental to this person who really should NOT belong to any Political party but purged from all to languish wherever he wants without being allowed to pillage Sri Lanka any more..MM

    Rasheed Tuesday, 26 December 2017 10:43 AM

    Bad luck, if MR is in power your son will be captaining the our cricket team.
