Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is free to do whatever he wants, but I am the Prime Minister of this country, Ranil Wickremesinghe said on Monday.
The PM made the observation while responding to reporters at the Temple Trees in Colombo. “I will be going next week to Switzerland for one week giving Mahinda time to bring the government down,” Wickremesinghe said.
Mahinda Rajapaksa earlier had told journalists that he intended to “topple” the current government in 2017. Rajapaksa said that 2017 will be the year in which the future of Sri Lanka will be decided.
Rajapaksa added that those who hold portfolios and vote with the government on important matters, are members of the government despite any criticism they may make in public about other political parties and ministers in the government.
