I Came to Sri Lanka to topple the government – Says Basil Featured

Although he has court approval to remain in the USA for around another month, he decided to return earlier than the scheduled date to render his support to the struggle being carried out under the leadership of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to topple the government, said former Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa. 

He said that having gone to the US for medical treatment, he had subsequently returned to the country on September 25. 

Basil Rajapaksa noted that he would soon discuss with the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa regarding the current developments and future actions of the Sri Lanka Podu Jana Peramuna (SLPP) and also hold discussions with the leaders of the Joint Opposition.
