Responding to remarks made by UNP MP Hesha Vithanage that Gotabaya Rajapaksa will have to wear a (prison) jumper when Sajith Premadasa comes to power, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday said those who are trying to do so will have to wear jumpers.

Speaking at one of the SLPP conventions held in Colombo, Mr. Rajapaksa said the government was only focused on taking revenge on its opponents.

"Now they are looking into the construction of the Sanda Hiru Seya. The government is trying to arrest two officials for releasing gold to construct the Stupa. The Stupa was built with due approvals. As the Finance Minister's permission was given to release and place valuables inside the Stupa following a decision made by the Defence Council. We cannot approve taking revenge from officials in such manner," Mr. Rajapaksa said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)
