When he was the President he had to work with conspirators says former President, Kurunegala UPFA Parliamentarian Mahinda Rajapaksa. He said this when he met a group of Sri Lankans in South Korea yesterday (7th). He said certain ministers who were in his government have now joined the present administration as ministers and those ministers who were keen to take photographs with him are now posing for photographs with the present President.
Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa said the loans he obtained were used for the development of the country and added the present government states the amount of loans obtained by his government from foreign countries was Rs.9 billion.
Speaking further former President said, “They say we have taken loans of about Rs.9 billion. However, they increase this amount daily. We took loans knowing the needs of the country. However, the present government has already taken more loans than the amount we had taken. When they are asked what they had done with that money they say it is used to pay debt Rajapaksa had taken. When they can’t work they find fault with Rajapaksas,” said former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
