‘Mahinda treated the ministers like animals during his time’

Although former President Mahinda Rajapaksa portrays himself as a compassionate and sensitive leader, the other day he reprimanded his private secretary in a very degrading manner in front of the media, which the people witnessed with disgust and anger, said Agriculture Minister Mahinda Amaraweera.

“During the previous regime, even if we made a small mistake, he used to reprimand us in a very brutal manner. Due to his behaviour, many of the senior ministers were thoroughly disgruntled,” he said. He made this comment during the Beliatta, Angpitiya tank renovation ceremony under the ‘thousand tanks thousand villages’ programme.

This is how Mahinda Rajapaksa reprimanded his private secretary.
