JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake responded to statements being made that whether he wins or loses, the President will remain in the position for two more years.
He made these statement at a rally held in Piliyandala on Monday.
At first they said victory was certain. Now what are they saying? They will not leave even if they are defeated. They cannot say they will leave if defeated and incite those around them. They have a small team around them. Now, the employees of the Road Development Authority must run. Employees of the Ports Authority must run. The Chairmen of Corporations must run. If they tell them that they will leave if they are defeated, then those people will leave the very next day. I saw him say on the stage that he has two years left anyway. This is a new theory. Then both the defeated and victorious candidate will be there. The person who was defeated will sit in the President’s chair for two more years and the victorious person will stay on the outside. Are there any countries like this? Mr. Rajapaksa, leave alone two years, you will not be able to stay for 24 hours. If you are defeated at the election, you must be prepared to leave the next day. I guarantee it.
Dissanayake also spoke on the 2005 presidential election campaign.
The largest amount of money in history is being pumped into this election. How many cut-outs have they put up? On average, the cutouts are half as big as a clock tower. It costs about two million rupees to put up each of these cutouts. They have spent 400 million on cutouts. This is the wealth of the people. In 2005. Mr. Rajapaksa did not have enough money to print the last batch of campaign posters. I state this with responsibility. The JVP printed the last batch of posters on credit. There yet to repay that debt. I state this with responsibility. We printed those posters for them on credit. That was the state of the family then. Look at the amount of wealth they are spending on cutouts now.
