Lanka Can Do Without Foreign Aid, But Can the Rajapaksa Clan?

President Rajapaksa is reported to have said that Sri Lanka "can do" (what, I might add) without foreign aid.

But the million dollar question floating around is, whether the Rajapaksa clan of Mahinda-Gotabaya-Basil can follow suit and do without the foreign aid. Of course, while tapping into local resources is still a feasible option, the lack of foreign aid to fund the 10% donation to Rajapakse Private Limited is a worrying prospect.

Mr. 10-percent didn't come around for nothing, no?

You forgot Chamal. There are a few others as well. Can someone do a count including relatives of Mrs Rajapakse.

I don't think anyone but the most hardcore UNPers would believe that the Rajapakses are involved in any sort of corruption.

I don't think anyone but deaf&blind bootlickers of MR would believe that the Rajapakses are not involved in any sort of corruption.
