Speaking in Walasmulla on Tuesday, MP Sajith Premadasa, deputy leader of the United National Party, expressed his views on the disruptions caused by the ruling party to the campaign of the common opposition.

[quote]Any political party has the freedom to hold a meeting and go from door-to=door. However, my friends, today we here in the Walasmulla town do not have the right to hold a meeting. It is prohibited. We do not have the right to hold a meeting in the Tangalle town. We do not have the right to hold a meeting in a familiar place in Tissamaharama. That right has been prohibited. Every faction in the alliance government has paid the advance and booked every public ground and public place for one and a half months. This clearly shows how terrified they are of the common opposition. The country is being ruled by a division of cowards. Why are they so afraid? Is it only the colour blue that has the freedom of speech? Is it it only the colour blue that has the right to hold a meeting? Is it only the colour blue that can put up cut-outs?[/quote]
