“The public rejected the Rajapaksa regime accusing it of nepotism, corruptions and waste of public funds. This country is not for one family,” SLFP National Organiser and Irrigation, Water Resources and Disaster Management Minister Duminda Dissanayake said.

After three and half years, the former President is still working hard to give places for his kith and kin at the forthcoming presidential elections, he said.

The Minister said the SLFP and the country need a patriotic leadership to eradicate nepotism and political selfishness. "Only President Maithripala Sirisena can make the difference that the people need," he said.

The Minister said Maithripala is the only leader who could bring in a bright future based on co-existence, peace, integrity and understanding.
