Governments should be toppled and will be if the people reject it but we cannot allow governments to be toppled by force, President Mahinda Rajapaksa stated.


Speaking at the Central Bank Annual Report launch today (April 8) in Colombo, the President stated that no one needs to go to universities like Harvard to learn how to topple governments adding that he will show anyone how to topple a government if they come to Madamulana.


The Opposition is waiting and watching until the economy and the government falls but I do not think that will happen, the President stated.


Unemployment has fallen to around 4.4% but some organization request to bring down employees from India and Korea but he never give into those requests, he added.


He claimed that the development that the country is going through at the moment will be sustainable until 2040 and maybe even 2050.
