Rajitha’s assessment of defeat

By Norman Paihawadana

Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne yesterday attributed the government’s humiliating loss at Saturday’s local government elections to ruling regime’s own candidates accusing each other of being rogues.

"Where they failed was they didn’t point a finger at the rogue politicians who were in the opposing camp," he said. "On the other hand, the spiralling cost of living very much contributed towards the election results."

"The masses have given us a warning and we have to take it seriously," the Minister said, adding that election results mean that the government had been toppled and it would not happen.
