Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says that the reason for soaring rice prices and cost of living is due to the ‘stupid’ decisions and carelessness of the government.

Do you get rice for Rs 45 – 60 now? How much is it now? It is Rs 110 – 130. Why has this situation risen? Why did the cost of living increase in the country?” he asked.

It is due to the carelessness of the government and the stupid decisions taken with regard to agriculture, he said, while addressing the Joint Opposition rally ‘Peraliyaka Peramaga’ in Galle today (25).

That is why people now have to keep looking at the port until ships come with rice in order to eat, he charged.

He also accused the government of bending the law.

The law is helpless today. Wimal Weerawansa has still not received bail. He is in a prison cell. What is the government expecting?”

They only want the FCID, CID and prison to rule the country. They want to put everyone in prison and rule the country. They don’t understand that this will blow up,” Rajapaksa said.

He said that some politicians in the government claim that ‘Mahinda is making deals with Ranil’.

These are the deals. Those inside are making deals and pointing the finger at others,” he added.
