Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday recalled that his government had decided to take the Meethotamulla waste to Puttalam to fill deep pits there. But, his government had been defeated before that project was carried out, he said.
“We had plans ready to solve the garbage issue in Colombo, but unfortunately the UPFA government was toppled and the new government didn’t implement what was planned by the previous government,” he said.
“Instead of trying to solve problems, the unity government is taking revenge from Opposition members, but when things go wrong the ruling party members blame me for their faults,” he said.
