Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe speaking at a rally held in Hettipola said that Mahinda Rajapaksa served as President for ten years and could have done whatever that was required adding during this period.

The prime minister said that although prices of oil dropped in the world market, it cannot be reduced in Sri Lanka.

Prime Minister also added: ”He said that wages of state sector employees could not be increased. But we did that as well. He said that prices of essential items could not be reduced, but we did that too. Then he said that price of a kilo of paddy could not be purchased for 50 rupees, but we did that too. ”

Wikremesinghe questioned why Rajapaksa is trying to come back if he could not do any of these things during his tenure, also questioning whether he could do as an MP what he couldn’t do as president.
