Former president and Kurunegala District MP Mahinda Rajapaksa said yesterday that he couldn’t figure out the ‘hopper theory’ and that’s what triggered his defeat.  

Addressing an event held at Sri Sudharmarama Temple in Narammala, he said the present government only has the protection of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and the Financial Crime Investigation Division (FCID).

“From all this, I learnt that there is a theory called ‘the hopper theory.’ We are only used to meals made of Kurakkan. Though we had hoppers, we couldn’t figure out the hopper theory. That’s what went wrong,” he said.

    He now speaks like a third grader, not as once disposed president. The son, of course has no educational qualification, except for being a synthetic lawyer.

    MR's also fool the people about his consumption of Kurakkan that is being produce in Hambantota. Not only Kurakkan and his other major food items such as otts, kadala, ulunthu and Atta piti are import from India.

    Its a theory of ruin a country. Its a theory of jeopardizing country's national security, economy and dignity. And, in a nut shel, its a theory of regime change, using mega lies!

    You must be having meals made from kurakkan, not the rest of the nation. If we relied on kurakkan as a staple diet we would not be existing.

    Still he tries his lies. He lost because of the corruption and authoritarian ways and everything for the family - nothing to do with hoppers.

    What goes around comes around. Thanks to a hopper dinner we were able to oust a family who led a lavish life of luxury at the expense of the poor tax payer.

    At least he ate hoppers and left you, but you have eaten the country and try to eat some more. That is because what you ate more tastier than hoppers.
