Speaking at a rally held in Kelaniya on Monday, Minister Mervyn Silva, said that the position held by him had been given to Shalitha Wijeysundera, on the instructions of the President.
Minister of Public Relations and Public Affairs Mervyn Silva expressed the following views:
I do not play at other people’s homes. I took a decision. But at this time, on behalf of His Excellency the President, we must not create conflict and crisis. So I spoke to His Excellency the President and said, “Sir, there is a proposal like this”. He said “But you are the organizer”. So I said, “Sir, let’s do this at this time”. I said, let’s appoint someone to this position instead of me. He said ok, recommend a name. We both thought that Shalitha Wijeysundera is a respected member of a respected family. He is the son of Minister Wijeysundera who was assassinated. I believe that I have been done an injustice. But as long as the great blood of Ruhuna flows in my veins, I will not cry.
Meanwhile former provincial councilor Shalitha Wijesundara states following views :
I will do whatever he needs and assist his future journey in every way. I did not ask for this because I wanted a position. His Excellency the President can make a decision at any time. He entrusted Biyagama to me back then. I did not have a problem. Because in truth, we have lots of work to do even in our business. But as per his forceful appeal, and under the guidance of the President, I will be committed to make this victory a resounding one.
