Addressing an event held in Colombo on Wednesday, President Maithripala Sirisena posed an open challenge.

The president said that the country went in for an election because the government was finding it difficult to face the resolutions which were being put forward by the United Nations Human Rights Council. That the government was feeling a sense of uneasiness because the people of the country as well as the armed forces were dissatisfied with the government.

The president added that he challenges anyone to debate with on this topic and he will clarify it adding that as a person who was in that government he knows what the internal discussions were.

The ceremony to award Sathviru Sanhinda Housing and land deeds to disabled and retired servicemen of the tri forces and the Civil Security Department was held in Colombo today under the auspices of the President.
