Speaking at a media breifing, Gammanpila said that his wife has received death threats from anonymous callers who have said that he and his two children will be killed if they do not migrate.
Meanwhile, at the press conference he also had a racist take on the victory of the newly elected President Maithripala Sirisena, claiming he is the ‘first President to not receive the majority of the majority community. . .’
He went on to state that they would offer their support to implement Sirisena’s 100-day program but added that in the meantime, they will be working towards establishing a ‘patriotic government’ in Sri Lanka in another 97 days.
