“We will enact laws to prohibit the sale of the island’s resources” – Premier Mahinda


Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has observed that legislations would be enacted to deter the sales of the island’s resources.

He made this observation addressing a meeting held at the office of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna in Getamanna in Beliatta on Friday, July 3.Premier Mahinda said:

“As the former President of the country, I initiated and carried out development of the whole country. We constructed a port, an airport, an international cricket ground and an expressway in Hambantota.

The UNP government sold the port we built. They stored paddy in the airport we built. They influenced the Cricket Board to withhold permission for cricket matches being played at the Hambantota Stadium and they even dismissed the panel. Yoshitha, Namal, and I were sued for various allegations. These actions display the mentality of the UNP.

The United National Party has split into two and is now beyond repair, and this was subtly carried out by Sajith Premadasa. Not only will the UNP receive the lowest number of votes but it will also mark the end of the oldest political party in Sri Lanka. This is a good opportunity for everyone to reflect on what services he has done for the public while he was appointed as a Minister for five years.

We work together to build this country as one nation. We have a president who is determined to take this country forward and we have many initiatives which will transform our nation. Due to this, it is vital that the President’s party is strengthened and secures majority of the Parliament. We do not want a repetition of the Ranil-Maithree conflict as the damage done by such conflicts will directly impact our people.

I recently met with a Trade Union of Ports and resolves their issues through successful discussion. However, it became clear that we now have to pay the dues of mistakes done by the previous government who has already sold most of our country’s resources. Nonetheless, we have a responsibility to respect and uphold agreements signed with other countries.

A new system has to be devised to prohibit the sales of our resources. I intend to introduce a proposal to get the Parliament's approval when signing diplomatic agreements.

Since the day we came to power, there have been many parties who intend to topple our government. I hope our people will take the right measures to protect the government from such individuals.”
