Former president and MP Mahinda Rajapaksa today commended the official visit undertaken by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to China.


Addressing a gathering at Angunukolapelassa, he said it was essential to maintain good relationships with neighboring countries.


He said the government members continued to blame the previous government for its development projects started with Chinese funds, but today it had turned towards China.


"Not only did they speak against China funded projects but they also halted work on them once they came to power. If they continued with the envelopment projects, the country could have had more extensive expressway network today," he said.


Mr. Rajapaksa said it was not advisable to halt the development projects because it would devalue the project.


He said that he hoped the government and its leaders would not take revenge on their political opponents any longer in the spirit of the NewYear.

    What else to do. "Kiss it if you can't chop it off"

    PM went to China to discuss how to get out of debt burden MR created. Thats what he did by asking to take equity in projects so that some of the debts can be eased. MR keeps fooling gullible masses by twisting the matter.

    This government has proved to people what you started with China to develop Sri Lanka was the step in the right direction. I want to know where is Arjuna and that JVP dude who said we will not work with China and ranil and Maithree can now remove their pants in shame as his western colleagues have taken them for a good ride

    New Year or not, hope yahaalanaya will follow up on MR family looted funds - that is not revenge but correction of wrongdoings.

    Mandy Monday, 11 April 2016 03:02 AM

    Is he asking forgiveness so that he and family will not have to answer for the swindling of public funds.

    Reader Friday, 15 April 2016 04:54 PM

    MR can commend but no alternave other than to sell part of those assets to China to repay the massive loans. None of Chinese funded Hambantota projects are bringing revenue to repay loans after 3-4 years after completion.

    Any investigation on the abuse of power, sheer corruption and manipulation of the justice system is not revenge, but a duty that needs to be performed by any government as this is purely citizens rights and public property.

    We are not very happy with RW and MY3 but do not think for a second about you being able to come back to power its you and your family thieving that has brought this country to the mess its in. via DM Android App

    Yes agree,but the funds were in the wrong direction.

    Sharon Monday, 11 April 2016 10:14 AM

    Thought they went to China, they are not capable of implementing many plans. UNP is NATO....

    John Monday, 11 April 2016 10:48 AM

    ....you wrote out too many cash cheques in your time many of which seem to have since bounced back on the country....and we are all now paying back with interest.

    karsha Monday, 11 April 2016 10:48 AM

    Hon MP Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksha is a genius in fooling the masses in Sri Lanka

    Ganesha Monday, 11 April 2016 10:51 AM

    Massive scale looting and pawning the the country in the name of national security is unpardonable unless they are settled . No new year for legal process and judiciary against national criminals

    Rizwan Tuesday, 12 April 2016 05:25 AM

    Why he utter like this in Temples and meetings? why doesn't he come to parliament to talk this?

    Chandu Monday, 11 April 2016 03:24 PM

    What about probing in to the misuses & corrupt deals of the Pre-MR regime's? Is that not public money?

    REALPATRIAT Monday, 11 April 2016 04:02 PM

    Mahinda's commends are considered to be a disqualification in the political arena. via DM Android App
