Minister Sajith Premadasa charged that attempts being made to enact the public mandate,  is being described by some people as a form of political revenge.

The foundation stone for the Sanda Kirana Village in the Siri Bopura area in Hambantota was laid under the Samata Sevana national housing programme on Friday.This is the 41st Uda Gammanaya which is being constructed in the Hambantota District. Twenty five houses are to be constructed in the village. Deeds and financial aid were also presented by Minister of Housing and Construction Sajith Premadasa.

“Mahinda Rajapaksa himself is saying that the people that were around him robbed and that they did wrongful things and that they were corrupt”, said the Minister of Housing and Construction, Sajith Premadasa

Minister Premadasa went on to state that the former president says he did not do anything about it and that the thieves were not punished but when the government that came into power starts punishing those who engaged in these acts and while the law is being enacted in the country, they say that this is “political revenge” and that this is a ” witch hunt.”

“When the corrupt and the thieves are brought before the law isn’t it justice that is being meted out?” questioned the Minister who further expressed that the mandate was to nab the thieves and to stop enacting the ‘law of the jungle’.
