Addressing the COC (Citizens’ Organizations’ Collective) organized press conference held at CSR today (May 4) Left centre Co-convener Chameera Perera said that government should play their political role.
“We should not worry about the Mahinda Rajapakse acolytes as they were worship to their Lord. We are really keen about 6.2 million Voters who cast their vote to this government with expectation of the justice for the victims of disappearance and killings and government failed to expedite the investigation on such issues.’
He pointed out that government should take immediate action to investigate about the wealth of Lawyer Namal Rajapakse, Yoshitha Rajapaske and Wimal Weerawansa.
“Namal Rajapakse has a company. Yoshitha Rajapakse was running a media institute being a normal navy officer and Wimal Weerawansa has a luxury palace. How did they accumulate those wealth? Government should work according to January 8th peoples’ mandate and punish the culprits who have misused people’s money.”
Referring to the GMOA strike Perera said that there is a pro-Mahinda Rajapakse political agenda behind the campaign against SAITM and the token strike to be held on tomorrow.
“GMOA can’t topple the government within three months time.”
D. M.D. Abeyratne and Priyadarshai Ariyaratne also spoke out at the press conference
