Former Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera said today that the Opposition in Parliament is now playing the ‘race card’ like the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) did when it was in the Opposition earlier.

In a Tweet, he also said that what Sri Lanka needs is an alternative vision and not a duplicate of the present regimes xenophobic and racist/majoritarian policies.

    The days where politics were divided alone socialism and capitalism are over. Now socialists and capitalists have combined into globalists and the other side are the nationalists. This is happening across Asia to Europe to America.

    All decency, honesty, compassion for others is gone from politics. Everywhere. Also here in the western world.

    There are few people must be swept out of politics. That much we know.

    The only magic to put the country on developmental path is to find ways to consolidate on communal harmony defying politically motivated mean agenda. A citizenry beaming with pride and self respect !!
