Minister of State Dayasiri Jayasekara has stated that although Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage dances like a peacock, he is the light behind him.
Minister of State Dayasiri Jayasekara made a special statement in Parliament explaining the statements made by Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage targeting former President Maithripala Sirisena.
The Minister further said,
This is not the first time Minister Mahindananda has said this. If we stop this once, twice, three times, we can tolerate this. However, we cannot tolerate such slander against the leader of the main party representing 14 members of parliament in this government, the former President. Therefore, I would like to say that today Minister Mahindananda is dancing like a peacock in this country but he is being pulled out later. Remember it's out there. While the peacock is dancing, there are groups in front. I would like to tell him that he is doing the digging. Tell him to dig more. When you dig further, the stench of garbage goes down when you go down. If you want to strike, hit us. Do not hit our party leader, ”said the Minister of State.
