Leader of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), Anura Kumara Dissanayake has demanded President Maithripala Sirisena to reveal the secrets he claim to know of certain politicians.
At an event held in Tangalle on Saturday, Dissanayake said that the people had the right to know what these secrets are.
“Whether they form a party or not, it is the responsibility of President Sirisena to reveal these secrets to the people,” he said.
According to Dissanayake, although Sirisena didn’t openly mention former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s name in his threat, it’s obvious that he was talking about Rajapaksa. “These are not personal secrets that Sirisena threatened to reveal, these are secrets that the public must know about,” he said.
He added that Sirisena must go beyond his threat and reveal these secrets. “These secrets he is harboring is connected to the wrongdoings committed by the former leader. We are demanding that President Sirisena reveal these secrets. The public has a right to know,” he added.
