Certain people are hatching various conspiracies with the objective of setting up a government of their own to earn a fast buck from the sale of massive development projects launched by the present administration.
Those who try to chase out the present government which has won the people’s confidence will have to suffer the fate of the proverbial parrot that waited impatiently for the cotton seed to ripen, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said.
The President was addressing a meeting at Kundasale to mark the opening of the modernised Maga Neguma machinery workshop and equipment training school on Sunday.
President Rajapaksa said a strong opposition was vital for the development and progress of any country. “The whole country looked forward to the UNP Convention thinking that it would bring about a positive change for the party and the country,” he said.
“Although the Elephant was expected to give birth to a robust baby, it laid only a lump of dung only for the astonishment of all,” the President said.
