Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa today in a sarcastic manner said ‘very good’ upon being asked for his comments on reports of business Mogul Dhammika Perera preparing to contest the upcoming presidential poll.

When asked about reports of Dhammika Perera being ready to contest the presidential election, Mr. Rajapaksa said in Sinhala, “hari shoke, hari shoke.”

When asked if that’s a good thing, he said, “its good, very good.”

Journalists asked about the comments made by former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa that he would definitely contest the presidential poll.

Mr. Rajapaksa replied: “He is also ready. Our party has to make a decision. Will announce the decision on time. The party has to convene to decide. We didn’t convene yet.”

He also commented on the the no confidence motion brought against Minister Rishad Bathiudeen

“The no-confidence motion is going through a select committee now. As the opposition, we will decide whether we should go to this. We should think based on our conscience whether we should go there and sit, being already aware of the committee has a majority representation of the government,” Mr. Rajapaksa said.
