The number of Indian vehicles imported to Sri Lanka had increased by 637 percent in 2015 compared to 2014 because of the 100-day-programme, the joint opposition said today.

MP Bandula Gunawardane said the drastic increase in Indian vehicles had clearly made an impact on Japanese vehicle importers.

“This is a measure taken by the government to please India for their contribution to topple the previous government. No other country has done something like this before,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    We toppled the previous government and not by India, for reasons which are becoming quite obvious as the days pass by. So what harm importing more Indian vehicles?

    So according to u, India toppled the Govt. According to MaRa it was the western nations that toppled him. Then who the hell voted on the 8th January??? Was it Indians, Westerners, Chinese or Russians and never a single Sri Lankan? It is similar to your story that a family of 3 can comfortably live on Rs. 7,500.
