Democracy replaced by state-sponsored violence: Opposition Leader (VIDEO)

The first assault on the democratic struggle of the people of this country was launched on May 09, 2022 through state-sponsored violence, leading to the forcible stepping down of the then Prime Minister and the chain of events led to the expulsion of the President from the country thereafter, said Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa, addressing a meeting of the National Reform Movement at the Opposition Leader’s Office in Colombo yesterday (25).

The event was held to collect positive ideas and suggestions for creating a more progressive country and was attended by a number of political party leaders, public representatives in Parliament and professionals of various fields.

Addressing the meeting, Opposition Leader Premadasa emphasised that all those who were hoping for a new journey had to experience state-sponsored violence and the same violence has now been enforced on a magnified scale against the protesters.

An appointed dictatorship must not be allowed to violate democracy and spread barbarism and the rulers should set an example of unity and fairness, he added.
