After waiting for three years, the people have understood that the promises they were given would not be delivered, he said.
Wijesuriya noted that instead of proving the accusations that those in the previous government were plunderers and fraudsters, the present government struck deals with them.
Persons such as Sagala Ratnayake as well as the prime minister and the president should be held responsible for that, he added.
Although the local government polls would not bring a government change, the people have given a certain signal at the LG polls, which will not be good for the country’s future, said Wijesuriya, adding that the country will go back to the previous state mechanism that is bad for the country.
