Buddhasasana and Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe claimed Minister Rajitha Senaratne was accusing him falsely that he was protecting Avant Garde, as an act of revenge as the latter lost his parliamentary seat in 1994 as a result of a case filed by him in the Appeal Court.
Minister Rajapakshe said he never appeared on behalf of Avant Garde but he only spoke of the appropriateness of the Attorney General’s decisions.
"Rajitha Senaratne is always blaming other ministers when speaking as the cabinet spokesman and the President had advised him on such matters. He was appointed as a national list member in 1994 by the present Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. Then he was a consultant to the Health Advisory Committee. During this period he continued to supply dental medicine and equipment to the army," he said.
The Minister also said he filed a case against corruptions committed during this period. He was found guilty and expelled from the parliament membership.
He said a cabinet spokesman should be intelligent and speak decently. (Diana Udayangani)

Minister Wijeyadasa is the only man in this government who speaks truth directly.

What sort of uncivilized ministers we have in Sri lanka?

Mr. Rajapaksa, this type of statements only show you are guilty. What authority did you have to stop your good friend Gota from being arrested. We know how a little school girl was arrested for picking up a fallen coconut. We are now talking weapons. As a respond to Rev. Sobitha, please resign from the Buddhasasanama minister post.

A bad dental surgeon always tries to remove the tooth instead of healing and saving it!

Mr Wijedasa, you lost my vote, I know, in 5 yrs but you lost it. No amount of stories, right or wrong you utter against Rajitha or SF is going to do you any good. Everyone knows SF is a Honourable man. Immaterial if Rajitha is Honourable or not. You have gone to zero.
