Rejecting the ‘hopper revolution’ remark made by MP Wimal Weerawansa on Wednesday, Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara said today that the former would end up in a garbage dump for bringing up rotten issues.
We have arrived at a point where appropriate measures need to be taken in order to resolve the issues faced by the country. We request MP Weerawansa to not attempt to pull back the country by selling the rotten piece of fish he calls patriotism,” the minister said.
He made this comment in response to Mr. Weerawansa accusation that the present government which had preached simplicity was now wasting public funds.
“We are more patriotic than the so called patriots, and we respect our culture and law and order,” he said.
Adding further Minister stated that the government will never let nefarious forces to create rift between the coalition made by SLFP and UNP.
