Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Colombo District Organizer and Colombo Municipal Councillor Umachandran Prakash and Tamil United Progressive Front Secretary General Arumugam Johnson yesterday pledged their support to New Democratic Front (NDF) Presidential Candidate Sajith Premadasa at the upcoming Presidential election.

They were received by the Chief of Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa’s election campaign committee Tissa Attanayake at Sirikotha yesterday.

Addressing the media at Sirikotha, Attanayake said that a large number of SLFPers including party organizers, political party leaders and members in the North and East are gathering around Sajith Premadasa's campaign to ensure his victory at the election.

“Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa is in contention for power and privileges while NDF candidate Sajith Premadasa is vying to make the people victorious by ensuring democracy and social justice,” he said.

SLFP Colombo District Organizer Umachandra Prakash said SLFPers have been stranded and she will not abide by the party’s decision to support the SLPP at the presidential election.

Arumugam Johnson said that NDF Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa will create a country where people of all communities can live in peace.

Former UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said election campaign of NDF Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa was progressing successfully amidst the applauses of millions of voters. SLPP Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa who keeps the company of armed groups led by Pilleyan, Karuna Amman, Hizbullah and Abdul Razik and Vardharaja Perumal who were demanding for a separate Eelam state is now talking about national security. This is hilarious. The best people who can strengthen the security of this country including former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka are with Sajith Premadasa and people should not have to keep any doubts about it,” he further said.

UNP MP Harshana Rajakaruna said Rajapaksas are trying to manipulate the media in the same way they did when they were in power. They have already tried to influence media outlets including print and electronic belonging to both government and private sectors. Since all available research have assured the victory of Sajith Premadasa, they have got scared now and are trying to intimidate media houses.
