Former Sri Lankan Minister likens Gotabaya to Hitler

Former Finance and Media Minister, Mangala Samaraweera likens Gotabaya Rajapaksa's policy to banish beggars from cities to "Hitler's compulsory sterilisation and concentration camps for disabled people."

Commenting on Gotabaya's recent move to send all beggars to detention centres, Samaraweera tweeted;

"Like Hitler's compulsory sterilisation and concentration camps for disabled people, GR is banishing beggars from the streets of Colombo. Begging must be dealt with by banishing the conditions which make human beings beg and not by packing them out of sight into camps."
