The govt. we formed treated me like a terrorist: Ravi

2018-09-21 07:11:45

Former minister and UNP MP Ravi Karunanayake said yesterday false allegations had been levelled against him by the same government which they formed.

"Is this the Good Governance? The same government, which we formed, treated me like a terrorist," he said.

He told parliament that the same economic stalwarts who steered the country towards a negative economy in 2000 during the Chandrika Kumaratunge’s government are running the country today and added that they have been allowed to easily ruin the economy which the present government developed.

“The officials of the finance ministry did not discuss at least once with me as to how did I managed the economy as the former finance minister,” said. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    Of course, you should not be treated like a terrorist. You should be dealt with as a mega-scale bank robber. I wonder why the government is hesitating to act.

    By your own act you know what others must called you. Self assessment is better than others criticism.

    A thief of many days will be caught out in one day. You tried in small scale and then put your fingers in the national coffers. VP staked from outside and you staked from inside. So both are same.

    Forming a government does not give anyone a licence to rob the country or say lies under oath at a commission of inquiry. The law must apply equally and fast to every citizen and the truth must prevail.

    Why is this man still in parliament? Who does he represent in that great assembly of the people? The thieves of the country? I suppose that does justice to proportional representation in Sri Lanka.

    Why did you get Perpetual Trustees to pay your apartment rent (some millions a month)? You did irreparable damage to the party, government and country. Shame on you. You need to resign from parliament and give up politics.

    Others too trying to make a comeback to parliament,so your appearing in their presence in public ,negatively reflect on them too ,as public believe due to your unreasonable central bank robbery they have to suffer so much ,in terms of tax and high prices, people hate government why too late to punish you and your action team,but one thing you can happy is government trying it's best to save you from prison,though people detest it.
