Former Minister, Jayarathna Herath convened a media briefing in Kurunegala on Wednesday. At this briefing he expressed the following views:
A serious injustice was caused to me when I contested from the United People’s Freedom Alliance, as Mahinda Rajapaksa too contested from the Kurunegala district.
We were not able to achieve a mighty progress by allowing Mahinda Rajapaksa to contest from the Kurunegala district. We were only inconvenienced by him contesting from the Kurunegala district. However, based on the decision he took, the other members of his family were able to win without any problem and this is the true situation.
He added that there is no wrong in taking members who were defeated at the election, into the National List and this is because these are not individuals who were rejected by the public because these are individuals who were made to lose as a result of a conspiracy and therefore I do not think anyone will oppose this move.
