Despite distributing everything by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa during the presidential election, he couldn’t win the election says the Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development Mahinda Amaraweera.
Speaking at a ceremony held at Angunakolapelessa Town Hall on the 3rd Minister Amaraweera said, “There was no limit for distributions. Farmers were paid for their own seed paddy even when their houses were full of paddy. We distributed ‘Sil Clothes’ on behalf of him. Every house was given 5 kilos of potatoes. Despite everything was distributed expecting victory, victory eluded us.”
