Sri Lanka is slowly losing its independence
Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa claims that Sri Lanka is slowly losing its independence due to the government selling off harbours and airports to foreign countries.
“We are losing independence day-by-day due to this. Today there is no freedom,” he said, during an event in Kurunegala on Saturday (4).
He stated that people are being murdered in public and that the sounds of gunshots are once again being heard in the South as well as the North.
Responding to a question from journalists, Rajapaksa said that he was invited to attend the 69th Independence Day celebrations in Colombo but he turned it down due to commitments.
