Referring to speculations about the Joint Opposition planning to join hands with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) led by President Maithripala Sirisena, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today said the SLFP should first break ties with the United National Party (UNP) and subsequently they could consider such a tie-up.

Addressing the media following an event held in Colombo, former president Rajapaksa said they would not support the SLFP while they are with the UNP and added that no agreement had been made reached between the joint opposition and the SLFP in this regard.

When inquired whether he discussed these matter with President Sirisena, Mr. Rajapaksa said they had held several discussions earlier.

Meanwhile, he said the Police had now become a corrupt department and added that it was similar to the underworld.

The underworld will not be curbed as long as this government is in power. The underworld nowadays have the sponsorship of the government. The government is protecting IGP Pujith Jayasundara even though some serious allegations have been levelled against him,” he said.

Not only the IGP, but the government would also protect any state officer as its responsibility,” he added.

    Mr.President don’t be hurry to grab power making deals with dirty traitors in both UNP and SLFP. You have enough support from the public. They are genuine poor, middle class and intellectuals in all fields so there is no hurry for you to get those bad guys back to you and dance according to their tunes. You stay in your course and take decisions correctly and bravely according to your conscious. Our leader is you and our party is Pohottuwa period. Don’t talk about Sirisena or SB or SLFP just put your trust on the citizens who were with you in bad times and in good times. People change the governments not Americans or Indians. We love our land and we love our President Mahinda Rajapaksa. If you cannot contest because for some reason or the other Got a is the best of best for our country.
