Vidura Wickramanayake Slams At Wasteful Conduct Of UPFA Government

UPFA MP Vidura Wickramanayake, son of the former Prime Minister Rathnasiri Wickramanayake, has launched a scathing attack on the government criticizing 'futile' development projects of the government and the conduct of some top rung leaders of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party.

In an interview with a Sinhala newspaper this weekend, Wickramanayake has strongly questioned the culture that spawns 'bribery and corruption' - one of the major allegations against the present administration. He has also said that he is not in a position to white-wash every sin committed by government. 

He has also raised some issues about the quality of certain large scale road development projects carried out by the government with much media fanfare. Wickramanayake has also criticized the rising cost of living in the country - for which the government has no solid answer. 

When asked whether he was dissatisfied with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party, Wickramanayake had said he was nit dissatisfied with the party, but he was disappointed with the conduct of some powerful "people" in the party. 

Vidura Wickramanayake is known for his bold remarks against some of the decisions made by the UPFA government. He is also highly reputed for his modest life-style. 

When Rathnasiri Wickramanayake was the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka several years ago, Vidura Wickramanayake travelled from Horana to Colombo by public transport.
