Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa said that not only him, but even the public has been deceived by one man, who everyone trusted – President Maithripala Sirisena.
“The same man I trusted, ate hoppers with me and then put a vettu, now the same thing has happened to all of you,” he told an event in Kurunegala today.
Rajapaksa went on to say that one cannot expect too much from Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe as he knew nothing about farming, but President Maithripala Sirisena was the son of a farmer, therefore he needs to understand the hardships they are going through.
“They promised fertilizer subsidies during the run up to election, where? Have you’ll got anything?,” he asked.
He said that not only him, but even the public has being duped by the current administration.
“People voted for this government with a lot of expectations, now see what has happened,” Rajapaksa said laughingly.
