Addressing the press conference held at CSR on May 14 Left Centre Co-convener Chameera Perara said that government should take action against the hidden agenda of Mahinda Rajapakse Acolytes topple the government.
“Mahinda never accepted that he was defeated by 6.2 million voters during the last presidential election. He needs to come to the power again for safeguard their family members and henchmen who were guilty for corruption, disappearance and killings.
Rajapakse Royal Family is suffering from a endless power hunger.Therefore we urge government to take immediate action against culprits who were responsible for killing and disappearance of journalists and other malpractices,” said Perera.
“Government should stick to the January 8th mandate rather than dealing with Rajapakse acolytes,” he said.

This great teaching lay on good of living beings. Therefore we urge the President to reconsider this in vane project and make use of this in favor of landless poor people in the area. There are over thousand homeless people in the Kesbewa divisional secretariat area.
