Minister Sirisena operator of Rice`Mafia`

Maithripala SirisenaMinister of agriculture, Maithripala Sirisena who has been widely accused of manipulating a ‘Mafia’ operation which has resulted in unprecedented high rice prices with Samba now fetching almost Rs. 100/- per kilo! Has accused the JVP of destroying over 100 Rice Mills during the JVP terror period.

In keeping with the Rajapakse Govt. Ministers’ hobby of hurling counter accusations at the accusers rather than rectifying and remedying their own crimes, has found it easy to sling mud at the JVP and escape the accusations: Sirisena so far ,has not been able to defend himself or offer an explanation in exculpation of the fraud charges!

While both parties are guilty, and are engaged in mutual recriminations and mudslinging, it is the public who have to bear the brunt of all the losses entailed by corruption and atrocities of the politicians.
