Sajith entered Parliament in 2000. I entered Parliament in 2000 as well. Both of us have been in Parliament for 19 years. Can anyone show in the hanzard of our Parliament any instance Rajith Premadasa has mentioned the name of Gotabhaya Rajapaksa in Parliament? What did Sajith, who wants to defeat Gotabhaya, do for 19 years? Did Sajith talk when fisher-men in Chilaw were shot at? No, It was we who accused Gotabhaya of the shooting of fisher-men at Chilaw. Did Sajith mention Gotabhaya’s name when the Army was deployed to shoot those who asked for drinking water at Rathupaswala? Did Sajith accuse Gotabhaya when Muslims were attacked at Dharga Town and Aluthgama? The main thing in the country at present is not only defeating Rajapaksas. Both Rajapaksas and the UNP, who are very close pals, should be defeated together. It is the responsibility of the people. We know how Rajapaksas were saved from the cases against them. A cabinet decision was taken to prevent Shranthi Rajapaksa from being arrested. These two are one camp of the same class and very close pals though they show us that they are two different groups. They protect each other. They meet in secret. As such, not only Rajapaksas but the other group too should be defeated. It is why it is necessary to make a decision and vote for the NPP on the 16th. We invite everybody to take this important decision and bring victory to the country,” said the Candidate of the NPP and Leader of the JVP Comrade Anura Dissanayake. He was addressing a propaganda meeting held by the NPP at Chilaw yesterday (1st).
