Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe has found fault with UPFA Parliamentarians for talking ill of leaders who did service to the country.
He said: Late President J. R. Jayawardena built the Parliament in the Diyawanna Oya. He brought Jeffery Bawa to design the Parliament. He offered his 50 acre Namalwatta land to the Malwaththa Viharaya Chapter. He never robbed public money. He was a well-to-do person.
Late President R. Premadasa served the needy. He constructed one million houses for the poor. He never robbed money. J. R. Jayawardena was the one who set up the Gampaha District. I am the one who developed it.”
