Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday said the govenrent kept the door open for anyone to leave, if he or she did not agree with its policies.

Commenting on recent statements by some ministers critical of the government, PM Rajapaksa tod The Island: We are not keeping anyone forcibly. It is usual within an alliance for parties with various ideologies to have different opinions on political issues. We also maintain democracy within our alliance unlike many others in today’s politics. Anyone in the goverment can leave. We have the people’s trust. We are implementing the development work as we promised to the people in our manifesto. That is why the people have given us a huge mandate.”

The PM said some politicians made controversial statements to attract media attention, and they should not be taken seriously.

But if anyone is not actually happy with the way we conduct the affairs of this government, our doors are always wide open for them to leave. Similarly, our doors are also open for anyone who wish to join forces with us if they approve the way we govern this country,” the Premier said.
