Ranil’s constitution is the same he rejected then – Chandrika (video) Featured

Ex-president Chandrika Kumaratunga claims prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is today trying to bring in the same constitution that was proposed by her during her rule.

Speaking to the media in Colombo, she said Wickremesinghe had opposed the constitution she had proposed, but was now trying to introduce the same.

He had objected to it as he feared her party would once again win the elections and that she would remain as the president further.

Later, Wickremesinghe was helped to gain power and to become the prime minister, Kumaratunga said, adding that she also supported to bring another to presidency.

Now, they are saying the same things she had said then, she claimed.

The ex-president said the country was destroyed in the 20 years after she left power, and that she would not mention names, but that the UNP, including its leadership helped to ruin the country.
