Govt a limping horse, must go; else let's wait end of President's term: Bandula


Joint Opposition Parliamentarian Bandula Gunawardena has stated that the government is a limping horse and it must go. Else they are prepared to wait till the term of the President concludes to revive the country. The only solution to resolve the political instability is to go for an election.

He was speaking at a media briefing. He told that there was no point in changing the 'jockey' without changing the direction the horse is moving. The country's horse is the government and the jockey is the Prime Minister. They should both be changed. The old horse is limping. Without changing the horse and the jockey, we cant revive the country.

"If the government is unwilling to do that right away, we can wait till its mandate expires. We have waited for three years and waiting for another 500 days is not an issue. Even the Supreme Court has given a clear ruling that the presidential election should be held on time. We need a new President, a Prime Minister and a brand new Government, " he added.
