Sunday, 14 April 2013 - 13:13


A leaked US cable revealed that the United States had felt that Sarath Fonseka had poor economic knowledge during the run-up to the 2010 Presidential elections.


A leaked US cable, made public by Wikileaks, quoted the then US Deputy Chief of Mission in Sri Lanka Rebecca Cohn as saying that Fonseka is a military man who has publicly admitted that he has little knowledge of economic issues, and other than clamping down on corruption, he has no apparent economic program.


The cable also quoted campaign strategist and economist Harsha de Silva as saying that Fonseka promised benefits to each economic segment of the population in order to gain votes.


He has promised to increase the monthly salary of public servants by 10,000 rupees per month.

The US cable added that Fonseka himself, however, prefers not to discuss future economic plans.
