Colombo (News 1st); President Gotabaya Rajapaksa on Sunday (04) said the Government of Sri Lanka has not entered into any political deal with Parliamentarian Rishad Badurdeen.

Ensuring national security is the first and foremost responsibility of my government, said the President in a Facebook Post.

President Rajapaksa said he is not prepared to hand over the power of arresting or arbitrarily releasing people to politicians, as happened in the past.

“I will also take actions to rectify any omissions or mistakes made by the relevant authorities or officials”, said the President and assured the citizens he will not forsake the trust that they have placed in him and he will most certainly continue to work towards strengthening the built trust.
