Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Diana Gamage yesterday said she would continue to support President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to build the nation.

Speaking during an adjournment debate in the House, she said she decided to support President Gotabaya as she felt he is capable of building the nation.

“During his tenure as the Defence Secretary he did a lot of work. Thousands use walking tracks built by him,” she said.

She said the country does not need a President without powers. “We need a powerful President. Why should we spend funds and hold a presidential election and tie the President’s hands and throw him into a river expecting him to swim? He will not be able to swim when his hands are tied,” she added.

“I would have voted in favour of the 20th Amendment even if Sajith Premadasa was the President of this country.” (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    How many sacks of money? as I know they don't do bank transfers.

    How much did you receive from the Rajapaksas? Sajith made a biggest mistake of electing you as a national list MP.

    What a waste of public funds to maintain empty tank. This is why SL consider today a sinking ship.

    Actually SJB is her and her husbands party. Sajith borrowed it and changed the name from AJP to SJB. That’s why she was appointed through the National List.

    She took this decision to strenthen her finncial position. If she knew GR was an excellent Government servant, she should have contested under SPP banner.

    She is talking of a president with hands tied behind his back, ignoring the entire democratic process where the powers are vested on a group of parliamentarians. WHO AND WHAT QUALIFIES THIS TYPE OF HOOKWORMS in a system where their vote can demolish the entire nation in one day ?
