‘Gota could not eradicate white van terror’

Gotabaya Rajapaksa is now seeking power to uphold discipline and provide security to the people, but when he was the Defence Secretary in the previous MR government, people were abducted in white vans and leading journalists were killed in broad daylight, Fisheries and Aquatic Resources State Minister Dilip Wedaarachchi said.

The State Minister said Mahinda Rajapaksa considered Sri Lanka as his and his family’s private property. He enriched, protected and empowered only his family, he said. “Sajith Premadasa will be elected the next President. He never fled the country or became an American citizen. Mahinda Rajapaksa interfered with the judiciary by issuing orders to the then Chief Justice to vacate her post within 24 hours,” the State Minister said.

The State Minister said Gotabaya is manipulating the media and therefore, the people should think twice before bringing him into power.

“The people are looking for a leader who could ensure democracy, protect national security, and enhance peace of the country,” he said.

He said a strong coalition was formed to make the UNP presidential candidate victorious.
