The Rajpal Abeynayake Column
The political culture of this country cannot be redeemed. The Meethotumulla tragedy is one of the proportions which called for the immediate resignation of the Prime Minister, or the President. However, what’s more sickening than the fact that they did nothing about removing the mountain of garbage is the fact that their reaction was absolutely gross, pathetic, and plunged the lowest depths of political crassness.
For both these reasons the Prime Minister, if he has an iota of self respect, should resign with immediate effect.
(Of course we do know the wholly incompetent/indifferent/aloof/
traitorous Ranil Wickremesinghe does not have an iota of self respect, and that’s a different issue.)
