[quote]I need to remind you that no matter who changes sides, my heart is always with you. Therefore, we have accepted the responsibilities of all people. Some who have defected arouse nationalistic sentiments in a very disgraceful manner. Today a mud poster has been printed and is being distributed to all Muslim households. They say if I am elected, the veil of the women will be removed. Once they said that I will not allow for the religion to be preached in the mosque. That was in 2005. Today the daughter of Bandaranaike is working together with the very persons whose civil rights were stripped. Today they are shedding crocodile tears and saying that we need to be saved from the Rajapaksas. They say we are corrupt.[/quote]
