Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa questioned the country’s law and order stating that there is no purpose if it doesn’t protect the people.
While expressing his condolence on Saturday over the tragic assassination of cricketer Dhananjaya de Silva’s father - Ranjan de Silva, MP Rajapaksa said authorities should take the matter serious as the incident could add a black mark to the country.
He said the tragedy had occurred due to the actions of these drug kingpins who were operating under the shade of money and political umbrella.
“Without bending the country’s law and order IGP Pujith Jayasundara should take immediate actions to curb the drug menace and eradicate crimes,” he added. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)
How come you did not have this same attitude when your close friend Vidanapathirana raped Russian Girl and killed her boyfriend in Tangalle and the investigation was bluffed for over a year until the int'l community put their foot down in your mouth.

Two wrongs do not make one right. No matter what happened during the past regime, government should take immediate steps to eradicate the underworld from the country.
