A certain talkative top team member hailing from Uva was berating a onetime powerful politician during the debate on the Budget 2017, when a colleague seated close to him prompted him: “Machang, say something about the ‘prince’ too. What a hard time he gave us then!”

The politico who wanted the ‘prince’ too taken to task was a top team member of the previous regime and he is now a Deputy.
