The Leader of the opposition Era Sampanthan is in the pocket of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe. During my Government I invited Samanpathan to come for talks several times.
Although he will say that he will come, he never came. Rs. 20 Million was given to each TNA MP, said Mahindha Rajepakse, speaking in a propaganda meeting in Jaffna.
He was speaking in the LG election meeting held at the Weerasingam Hall yesterday. Speaking further he said, I am happy to speak to the Jaffna people after nearly 3 years. We gave you electricity, water, transport, schools and train transport which was absent for so long. We did everything necessary to you but we lost because of unnecessary reasons.
We have come with a new concept. Make the lotus win and pave the way for sustainable development, he said.
