Former Minister Dullas Alahapperuma stated that government media has manipulated the news about the meeting between President Maithiripala Sirisena and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa. He has expressed this while he addressing the press conference at Apayarama narahenpita today ( May 09th).
He continued, that the current and former presidents, meeting aimed to strengthening the SLFP. But I don’t like to comment the issues discussed in the meeting held on that day and the Media are publishing the news in this regard. But the matters which had discussed in the meeting was manipulated by state Media. Some media has reported the news with many things which are unspoken on that day. For whose purpose, the state Media functioning by aiming to degrade the harmony of SLFP.
Moreover, I insist if the local councils are not being continue, we ought to go for the immediate elections. Instead of that the local councils should not operate under the control of secretaries and Special Commissioner. This is clearly indicating us that it has carrying out for on purpose of UNP favors. Former minister requested that don’t sacrifice the District Council and Municipal Council for UNP’s political Conspiracy.
