SLFP General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekara has cordially requested Minister of State Dilum Amunugama not to make insulting remarks to the Sri Lanka Freedom Party.
“The winning candidate should get exactly 65 lakhs, but President Gotabhaya took 69 lakhs. Then there is a difference of 400,000. There must be some respect for this help. If you look at the statistics which Dilum Amunugama -who was speaking with arrogance and without that respect – is saying about, he will understand that if the SLFP did not support them, they would have inevitably lost the Kandy District by about 50,000.
Therefore, President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is winning 400,000 votes due to the SLFP. I kindly tell him, please do not make such statements if you want to further protect this unity. Because they are hurting, crushing, and tearing our people’s love and respect to pieces.
The SLPP runs the government as well as politics. The SLFP has no governance and no politics. I can’t shut my mouth and stop this. It’s difficult. I was the one who signed those agreements from everyone, ”he said.
Minister of State for Batik Dayasiri Jayasekara stated this addressing a media briefing held in Kurunegala yesterday (10).
