Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said the whole Rajapaksa family and their economic and social policies failed.
Addressing a press conference, JVP Leader Anura said, “They created an ideology saying that Mahinda Rajapaksa cannot take the country towards prosperity. Only Gotabaya Rajapaksa could do that. Now, they are claiming that it is Basil Rajapaksa who can develop the country. It means that Gotabaya and Mahinda Rajapaksa have totally failed. In the due course, Basil will say another Rajapaksa son should be brought in to develop the country.”
“Basil Rajapaksa has headed the Presidential Task Force in charge of Economic Revival and Poverty Eradication, Presidential Task Force to direct, coordinate and monitor the delivery of continuous services for the sustenance of overall community life in Sri Lanka in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and Presidential Task Force on Creating a Green Sri Lanka. But, when the Covid pandemic came to a critical situation, he was not to be seen in the country. Farmers have taken to the street demanding fertiliser. He also failed just like Gotabaya Rajapaksa,” he further said.
