President Maithripala Sirisena has also committed a wrong by allowing Arjuna Mahendran to continue in the position of Central Bank governor for such a long period despite knowing that he is a fraud, claims JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake.
The Governor’s term of service should not be extended because he is a “fraud” and afterwards those frauds should be investigated, the defrauded money returned and he should be punished for his crimes, he said addressing a press conference today (28).
Dissanayake said that when allegations were leveled against former Minister Bandula Gunawardena, he had vowed to cut his stomach if they were proven and in the same manner former President Mahinda Rajapaksa had vowed to cut his throat.
“In a few months Arjuna Mahendran could come and say he will stab his heart with a knife,” he said.
