    did not contain

    Also noted was the fact that his statement did not contain the usual “do more” mantra.
    Can I say here is" did not contain=was not contain". If it not right please explain it.

    "Did not contain" is correct. If you want to use "was", you would have to rephrase it like this: "Also noted was the fact that the usual "do more" mantra was not contained in his statement".
