Rajapaksas Made Plans To Kill Me And Imprison My Children: President

President Maithripala Sirisena says the former regime had formulated detailed plans to torture him and his family when Mahinda Rajapaksa emerged victorious at the Presidential elections.

Maithripala Polonnaruwa 01 25 2015Addressing a rally held in Polonnaruwa yesterday afternoon, the President had said,” Today, Mahinda Rajapaksa is saying he doesn’t even have a house to live in. I would like to ask him, if I was defeated, would you have given me a house?”

He had said that when he decided to contest as the common Opposition candidate, he entered the battle ready to sacrifice his life.
“If I was defeated not just me, we would all have been laid underground by now. During the Rajapaksa regime, all plans were made to arrest my children and inflict all suffering possible on me and my family once the elections were over,” the President said furthermore.

He also stated that if he had not accepted the Chairman position of the SLFP, it would have been a major obstacle for the successful implementation of the 100-day program.

“Some might ask me, why not have resorted to a general election instead of accepting the Chairmanship? If I had made that decision the 100-day program would have been over,” he said.

    Mr Mahithripala Sirisena, President of Sri Lanka, you in your political propaganda professed so much of honesty, integrity good governance. One of you earlies appointments was appointing your brother to run SLT, please tell the country was this position advertised so that other competent persons could apply, answer is NO. You took upon yourself to appoint your sibling despite other senior politicians suggesting other wise. You talk of being assassinated by Mr Mahinda Rajapakse, you remind me of a politician that was thrust into politics for sympathy vote many years ago, Your sympathy will run out very soon, there are grumblings among people who put you in that [position.
