People suffered when leaders tried to be eagles: Mahinda

It was people who had to suffer when leaders of the previous Government attempted to be eagles, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said during an event held at Kurunegala yesterday.

“There were frequent clashes and confrontations between the Executive and the Legislature. At the same time, the then President did not give heed to the Prime Minster and the Prime Minister did not give heed to then President,” Rajapaksa said.

“At the end of the day, nothing worthwhile happened to the common man,” he added.
