At meetings held on Friday and Saturday, Opposition Common Candidate Maithripala Sirisena made revelations on fraud and corruption.
Speaking at a meeting in Wennappuwa on Friday evening Maithripala Sirisena revealed details of a helicopter deal.
He shared these views:
[quote]The resources in the country are being used as personal wealth. Last year six choppers were brought down. These helicopters were shared amongst the family, including the prices. They have separate choppers and separate bullet-proof vehicles to travel including the security provided for a price. This is all public funds. This is your money. There are 2.7 million families in the country that have no means of income. They have no lands or any means of employment. The grassroot levels of the state service are facing a very difficult situation as they cannot live with their current income, specially for a family of two or three children.[/quote]
