Following his visit to Kandy, the State Minister stated that a group of MPs in the opposition are creating certain views among the people of the country to fulfill their narrow political objectives.

“They say things like, there is an impact on national security and the military servicemen are arrested”, said the state minister who pointed out that they are creating a rift in the country through such allegations because the government will never work in a manner that will create any discomfort to the war heroes,  and that must be made clear, he pointed out.
