Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says that certain members of the government who had accused him of corruption in the constructing of the Colombo Port City project, during the Presidential Election, are now saying no such thing has taken place.

“I recently heard a government politician saying that no fraud has taken place in the Port City (project). With the same mouth during the election they claimed that I had swindled millions from it.”

“The man who claimed that massive corruption had taken place is now saying that no corruption has taken place,” he told reports today.  

“Some are engaging in a procession to build something (and) they keep kissing a brick.”

Rajapaksa also accused the government of abruptly halting all the development in the country.  

“I presented a budget and I had clearly shown the development for this year, its cost and the profit it gains. This was not enough for them so they brought a separate e budget. Now they are saying there is no money.”

“The former President’s saying there is no money and that they can’t do anything while the others are saying there is money,” he said, adding, the people don’t know who to believe at this point.
