Because the government was keen to sell the Hambantota Harbour that it claimed it was a white elephant, former president Mahinda Rajapaksa said today.

He said people are aware as to how many ships arrive at the Hambantota Port.

When the two ships seized by the port employees departed another two arrived,” Mr. Rajapaksa said.
He said his government earned a sufficient income from the port during his tenure and that there was not plan to sell it to foreigners.

Mr. Rajapaksa said during his tenure 24 flights arrived weekly at the Mattala Airport but it was reduced to one by the present government and the warehouse given to Paddy Marketing Board to insult the then government.

    Our beloved leader,

    Now is the time you have to open up with the public… not politics… be straight into the point..

    Please declare what your plans are. Top of the list should be dissolving PC’s and abolishing the PC System completely.

    Now that you have no commitment or obligation to India unlike back in 2009, you can take that bold decision of completely abrogating of 13A which was forced to us by India.

    We can save millions worth of wastage and double handling cost.

    Other things to bring back her past glory to Mother Lanka is up to you. You may have better plans… We only want SL to be a one country ruled by the central government. We are smaller than any province in India. If we divide this tiny Island into 9 pieces, it is similar to diving Tamilnadu into 20 pieces… Such a joke it is.
