Thushara takes on Mahinda over his stance on airport deal

Thushara-700-01

The United National Party Parliamentarian Thushara Indunil Amarasena has charged former president Mahinda Rajapaksa with "duplicity" over a contentious airport deal - Mattala.

He made this observation responding to Mahinda Rajapkse's stance on India during his visit to New Delhi. 'This is duplicity. They tell locals something and tell India something else completely different. 

He stated that Rajapaksa in an interview in New Delhi had said that he was not opposed to the airport deal but was only opposed to the privatisation programme of his successor Maithripala Sirisena's government. However, Rajapaksa's joint opposition has earlier led public agitations against the proposed deal to operate the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. They dubbed it a sell-out of a national asset to India.

He added that in 2017, a public demonstration by the opposition saw Rajapaksa's son Namal, who is also currently in New Delhi with his father, being arrested when they demonstrated near the Indian consulate at Hambantota near the Mattala airport.
