Sajith expresses concern over rise in crimes

Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa expressed serious concern over rising criminal activities in the country. He said the Government should take immediate precautionary measures to eliminate such crimes which affect civilian life.

“Although the Government is always talking about the importance of maintaining the country’s National Security everybody is aware that majority people in the country are living in fear due to the escalation of criminal activities, especially shooting incidents that are reported almost every day from all parts of the country,”he said.

The Opposition Leader made these remarks at a community meeting held recently.

Premadasa said when the leaders in the country are receiving high security for their benefit, it is the duty of them also to look into the safety of the country’s 22 million citizens.

He said unless the Government takes strict action to curb these shootings and similar criminal activities, the situation will aggravate further in the future.
