The final election rally of the United People’s Freedom Alliance ahead of the Western and Southern Provincial Council Polls took place in Debaraweva on Wednesday evening.
This election rally was graced by President Mahinda Rajapaksa and was attended by a large number of UPFA candidates contesting the Southern Provincial Council.
The President shared these views at the rally:
“… If they win the vote in Geneva on the 27th, will it be an issue for us? Not at all. However, on the 29th , we need to tell them that we will secure victory in the election on the 29th. They say that we killed and assaulted and destroyed things . They say that we are negligent. They say that we attack temples, mosques and kovils. They are saying that monks are leading marches to attack churches. What is this? They say these outrageous lies and speak of reconciliation, but they have not seen reconciliation. They never spoke of reconciliation when the Sri Maha Bodhi was attacked or when the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic was attacked. There was no talk of
reconciliation when Kataragama was attacked and when Muslims who were praying at the Kattankudy Mosque were shot and killed.”
