President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, today at an event questioned the public as to why they elect politicians who they had once chased away and urged them to look for new people without electing the same set of people.
He said after governing for 5 years, the opposition had failed in their performance which is why he was elected, but now after two years, the opposition behaved like they had never governed the country.
“Even if myself or the ministers in my government don’t meet your expectations, don’t elect the same set of people. Look for new people. This system has to change,” the President said.
“There is no point in electing the same group of people into power if they fail to meet the people’s expectations. I don’t know how it could be done but that is the reality,” the President said.
“Once you chase us away, again you elect us. What’s the point in that ?” he further questioned.
