‘Sajith’s victory is inevitable’

United National Front (UNF) Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa’s victory at the upcoming Presidential election is inevitable, State Minister of Mahaweli Development and Environment Ajith Mannapperuma said.

“As a young politician who rendered a tremendous service to the ordinary people of this country by providing shelter, UNF Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa is very eligible to be the President of this country,” said the State Minister.

Addressing the media yesterday at the Temple Trees, the State Minister said: “Pohottuwa’ supporters are attempting like slaves to crown whoever from Rajapaksa family. They do not have any alternative.” He stressed that the people of this country should recall the era when Rajapaksas ruled the country, before casting their vote to elect another Rajapaksa to rule the country.

“The present government which came into power when the country was in a crisis due to the heavy debt burden, crimes and corruptions has been able to reinstate the rule of law and democracy. Unlike during the Rajapaksa era, anybody can criticise the government even by holding the top positions in the government,” he said.

He further said that the present government has already fulfilled the ‘Punchi Car’ dream which is one of the election pledges. “Though we didn’t distribute cars through divisional secretaries, we created the background to purchase a vehicle by increasing the earnings of public servants.

As a result, the number of vehicles imported to the country had been increased up to 105,628 in 2015 which prevailed as 38,780 in 2014. The number of motorcycles imported to the country has been increased to 129,548 in 2015 and it prevailed as 79,038 in 2014,” he added.
