In a statement issued on Tuesday titled, Run up to the Presidential Nomination 2015, CaFFE notes that the attacks could be a part of a broader government strategy to intimidate and create a submissive opposition before the election.

CaFFE Executive Director Keerthi Tennakoon, says that two such incidents have been reported in the last few days in the form of an attack on vehicles at an event in Giriulla and the attack on a hotel owned by an opposition MP in Karuwalagaswewa.
