The Opposition fights amongst itself, while the government toils for the development of the country, Housing and Construction Minister Sajith Premadasa said.

He said that although the Rajapaksas wished to topple the government, they still disagreed on who was to contest the Presidential election.

He was addressing the inauguration of a model village called Senehasa gama, in Ratnapura. It was said to be the 113th model village constructed under the recent model village project launched by the Housing and Construction Ministry.

“Parliamentarians such as Dinesh Gunawardena and Kumara Welgama do not receive the opportunity to contest due to the power thirst of the Rajapaksas,” the minister said.

Minister Premadasa said that Rs.531 million was spent on the Senehasa gama, which consisted of 42 houses.

The minister said the Rajapaksas never provided lands to the public; only to foreign companies.
