Govt. like a bull and buffalo-drawn plough: MR

Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday compared the government to a plough being drawn by a bull and a buffalo.

He said this after paying homage at the Dalada Maligawa and underlined the fact that this government would be defeated because it had not solved any of the issues faced by the people and had no proper plan of development.

“This government is similar to a plough being drawn by a bull and a buffalo. They pull in different directions. It is unable to control underworld activities not only in Colombo but also in Kandy,” he said. “The Kirivehera prelate was shot. They can find out who shot him by asking the prelate, who is said to be recovering. Someone may have had a reason to kill him. The social media is coming out with various fabricated news and are falsely accusing Gotabaya Rajapaksa of having committed various crimes."

Mr. Rajapaksa said religious leaders were also being side-lined by this government.

“The Vesak Poya Day was changed, New Year was changed, and even the Poson Poya has been changed. There is even an issue about the Ramadhan festival. All religions have been ill treated,” he said and added that usually matters discussed between a foreign ambassador and a state official were not normally released, but it had happened with various interpretations.

Mr. Rajapaksa said a presidential candidate would be named at the correct time, just like President Sirisena who came into the fray quite suddenly.

“The presidential candidate will be named under my directions,” he said. (J. A. L. Jayasinghe and Chandana Uduwawala)

    This guy should know that not ALL Sri Lankan voters are brain dead zombies, who do not remember the killings orchestrated by people closest to him when he was the President who deliberately turned a blind eye!

    Arjuna Ranawana Saturday, 16 June 2018 04:01 PM

    Why worry about the right and left of bulls

    Yeti Saturday, 16 June 2018 05:00 PM

    Two animals are better than the one that drew it before!!!

    MR “The presidential candidate will be named under my directions,” He thinks he is the king here, He always forgets that he lost by 4 lakhs.

    karthik Saturday, 16 June 2018 05:13 PM

    Well said Sir, So you know that you were defeated because you failed to solve any issues faced by the people.

    l. Perera Saturday, 16 June 2018 05:33 PM

    People in this country are like buffaloes to select all these politicians to govern the country.

    raesab Saturday, 16 June 2018 06:22 PM

    It is like saying Medamulana Meeharaka and Medamulana Haraka!

    Hari Mani Saturday, 16 June 2018 07:20 PM

    At least we know your government was run by three buffaloes, countless Hyenas and vultures. It is your regime that introduced white van disappearances, killing of enemies even if they dare upset your closest; Thajudeene's case was a perfect example and plundering the wealth of the country. Sadly corruption, still continues as we have self serving Rw and Spineless My3 at the helm of this government.

    Kumar Saturday, 16 June 2018 07:30 PM

    So MR want the bull to be replace by another buffalo? MR is so desperate to get in to power he will say anything and everything to make him look good. To make things look good he can write a cheque to pay for the SLTB for the busses he used during his previous election campaign.

    MR's 16 Pigs and Foxes who Joined to Government again came to Big Pig's side. We can see in future, Big Pig may give nomination to these 16 pigs and foxes in coming General election 2021.

    Your excellency's absence felt by our fellow citizen sir. You are a great war hero sir. We are eagerly waiting your coming-back sir. May GOD bless.

    ranasinghe Sunday, 17 June 2018 01:58 AM

    It is better than a single buffalo from 2005 to 20014.

    Kalu Gona Sunday, 17 June 2018 02:13 AM

    Hmmm... We Sri Lankans seen to remember that a bull with more brains was leading you, while you held on to a plough dressed in an "amudai". This while you were president. So shut up and do SL a favour by committing suicide.

They should all be behind bars soon for looting,Still the tax patyers pay for travel is S600 bullet proof Mercedes and BMW for travel talking bull shit to confuse and mislead.NO RAJAPAKSA SHOULD BE TOUCHED AGAIN THEY ARE RICH BUFFALOES NOW WANTING POWER AGAIN.

    Hubert Sunday, 17 June 2018 07:43 AM

    Angoda Bakka Sunday, 17 June 2018 08:55 PM

    Mervyn Silva says your govt. plough was drawn by Basil and Gota. So, who was the bull and who was the buffaloa?
