“The result of enacting of the 20th amendment to the constitution is ruin and devastation of the entire country. Through this move, the current Government has brought about a situation that even denies the right to life of people. The Government is afraid of the people. That is why high security are being created” – Sajith Premadasa Leader of the Opposition
The current President has been brought to office not through the ballot of the citizens. He has been installed by the ballot of the Rajapakshas. Hence he is afraid of the citizens. This was pointed out by Mr Sajith Premadasa.
He stated that the econonmy of the country was being destroyed on a daily basis, as the cost of living, electricity bills and cost of food was escalating.
Simultaneously the problems of brain drain and unemployment were heightening.
Mr Premadasa made these comments when he addressed the Electoral Committee of the Galigamuwa electorate of the Samagi Janabalawegaya yesterday (25 September)
