S.M. Marikkar, the UNP’s Colombo district candidate, continued his campaign in Mount Lavinia on Sunday.

Speaking at a rally on Temple Road in Mount Lavinia, S.M. Marikkar stated:

“Now they are trying to reclaim 233 hectares of land around the Galle Face. Out of the 233, only 125 belong to Sri Lanka. Eighty eight of it belongs to China for the next 99 years. The remaining 20 will belong to China forever. This is how patriots betray Sri Lanka by creating Chinese colonies. This is a contract worth millions of dollars. And they are giving this over to a company that was rejected by the World Bank. Therefore, I request from all of you to refrain from casting your vote to those who pretend they are patriots.”

Marikkar also engaged in cordial discussion with the youth at a sports ground in Attidiya, Dehiwala as part of his campaign.
