The first press conference by the Media Spokespersons of Opposition Common Candidate Maithripala Sirisena was convened on Thursday.

The press conference took place at the office of the Opposition Leader.

At the media briefing, Co-Media Spokesperson of Opposition Common Candidate, Rajitha Senaratne expressed these views:

[quote]Around 5000 persons are brought in to Temple Trees for these Dansals. Who receives these orders? For the Ministry of Health it was the Secretary to the Ministry who received the orders. She is helpless. My secretary too was told to bring in 5000 fishermen. He is asking this from me. I told him to do it, because he was asked to do it because he is capable of doing so. He said that he had never done such a thing in his life and that he was only in the administrative services. The Minister has to pay for 5000 rice packets, each priced at 950 rupees. I did the math, it amounts to four and a half million rupees. I never called for the fishermen. This is a grave crime.[/quote]
