The Kandy conference of the Democratic People’s Front was held at the Pushpadana Hall on Sunday under the patronage of the Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe, who arrived at the Malwathu Viharaya this morning, visited the Chief Prelate of the Malwathu Chapter Most Venerable Thibbatuvave Sri Sumangla thera and obtained his blessings.

He stated that when a child was raped in Kytes Island, people took to the streets and then they said it is the LTTE who is doing this and it was allowed; but not even three weeks after this happened, the suspects of the rape in Kahawatta were released by court. He further noted that there were massive protests against this on the street as well and that it must be asked from the former president if this was also done by the LTTE.

He further added that to help him out, a minister like Pavithra Vanniarachchi brought the LTTE and put them in Kahawatta, and that it has spread and these stories must be questioned. He added the mandate Mahinda Rajapaksa received in 2010 is now over and now it is the turn of the current government, which came in to power thanks to Maithripala Sirisena. He said it is with his benevolence that Parliament is running and that it is through this that the prime minister is acting.
