Mangala commends Basil’s talents Featured

Former minister Basil Rajapaksa is a talented politician who should have a place in any government, said minister Mangala Samaraweera in parliament yesterday (09).

Speaking during the adjournment debate, Samaraweera quoted from an interview given by Basil Rajapaksa to ‘Lankadeepa’.

The quotation was to the effect that local and external factors were the main reasons for the economic crisis, and that things like the increase in the crude oil price cannot be controlled by a government.
