President Mahinda Rajapaksa says that if the government is at fault, all the members of the Cabinet should be held responsible.

He made this statement addressing a meeting in Minuwangoda on Tuesday. The meeting was held at the centre of Minuwangoda town. The meeting is incidentally the nineteenth in a series of major rallies organized to muster support for President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the forthcoming presidential polls.

[quote]The United National Party is not contesting the elections this time.  Ranil Wickremasinghe only wants to secure his position as the Leader of the Opposition. I know him well; all it takes is a cup of coffee. Now what are they saying? A dictator had ruled the country for 10 years.  Oh God! If there was wrongdoing in these 10 years, shouldn’t Sirisena also be held responsible for it? What we are clearly stating is that if the government had been devious, then every single Cabinet minister is collectively responsible. We have placed our trust in the ministers. Now I have realized the consequences of being overly dependent on this trust.[/quote]
