Kumaratunga blasts Sri Lankan Govt. for 'completely forgetting' her mother legacy

London, Sat, 24 Jul 2010 ANI

London, July 24 (ANI): Former Sri Lankan President Chandrika Kumaratunga has launched one of her most outspoken attacks against the government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa by accusing it of "completely forgetting the legacy" of her mother, Sirimavo Bandaranaike, the world's first woman Prime Minister.


"She was not remembered except by ordinary people, yet neither her party nor the government did anything at all to remember her achievement. I think it is very petty-minded and it is disgusting," she alleged.


"She put us on the world map. She was a prominent leader of the Non Aligned Movement and took leadership in many other international negotiations," she added.


The denunciation was one of her most outspoken since the President came to power in 2005. So far, nobody from the opposition has responded to her allegations, BBC reports. (ANI)
