The main opposition UNP today accused the government of contracting money mania by abusing the EPF and now trying to exploit the Samurdhi funds meant for the poor people by way of the Divi Naguma Bill.

“This government has contracted a serious disease. The government does not spare money, lands, treasures and artefacts. We have lost great amount of valuable treasures and artefacts in the past.

We did not experience this sort of destruction even during the tenure of the King Kalinga Maga,” UNP media spokesman Gayantha Karunathilaka said.
He said the Government had given false promises to the farmers in the Northern and North Central provinces.

“The Government had promised to pay drought-affected farmers Rs.100,000 as compensation. Instead, it is distributing various things like chicks, mammoty blades, pots and pans and deceiving the farmers just as they cheated the people saying it will not give nominations to the kith and kin of politicians.”  (By Ajith Siriwardana)

    Mr. Wijeyananda Dahanayake was the caretaker Prime Minister for a short time after untimely death of Mr. S.W.R.D. Bandaranayake. At the next general election his party contested and lost badly. He resigned and walked out of Temple Tress waved a Galle bus on Galle Road on his way back to his home town Galle. That was Sri Lanka politics at that time.

    Caught the decease from UNP.

    Definitely UNP can not find a cure for this disease.

    and the former judge Srishkandarajah said to JRJ (then Minister of State) who was on the witness box 'You should be an accused in this case not a witness'.
    That was then Sri lankan justice system/Judiciary. Can a judge say that to a Municipal council member now?
