United People’s Freedom Alliance Parliamentarian and Pivithuru Hela Urumaya Leader Udaya Gammanpila yesterday (29) alleged that the United National Party (UNP) has formulated a five phase conspiracy to transfer the blame over the 21 April, Easter Sunday, terror attacks, to Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Presidential candidate and former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa.


He made this allegation at a Media briefing in Rajagiriya.
He said: “The UNP which is currently behaving like a mad dog over being unable to face up to its soon to become most humiliating election defeat ever in history, has thus planned to place the blame, over the Easter Sunday carnage, on the shoulders of Rajapaksa having titled it as the ‘Big Revelation’ and over five steps.”


Gammanpila alleged that as its first phase, a video has been made containing a confession made by a terrorist attached to the National Thowheed Jama’ath (NTJ) at a house owned by a person called Thushara in Battaramulla.


“This person in the video says that in the run up to the 16 November Presidential Poll, the country’s national security will be placed in danger and that the Easter Sunday attacks had been carried out by international terror groups at the behest of Rajapaksa,” he further alleged.


He further claimed that in the fraudulently produced video, the NTJ terrorist had further talked about the names of two Sri Lankans and that through them Rajapaksa had maintained links with terror groups in the Middle East and Europe.


 Gammanpila also alleged that the second phase of the plot suggests that eight Catholic MPs had held a Media briefing and that they had charged that Rajapaksa should be held accountable over the Easter Sunday bombings and that he should be apprehended forthwith.


He further alleged that the third phase of the UNP conspiracy against Rajapaksa would consist of staging a protest demonstration opposite Catholic Churches here displaying banners ‘Arrest Gotabaya’.


He alleged further that the fourth phase of the plot will include Catholic Priests and Very Important Catholic Persons making requests to conduct an impartial and unbiased probe into last April’s carnage.


Also, he alleged that the fifth and final part of the conspiracy would include publicising a bogus letter to suggest that Rajapaksa has maintained close links with international terrorists.


UPFA Parliamentarian Mahindananda Aluthgamage, claimed three powerful UNPers will get on stage with Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Presidential candidate, Gotabaya Rajapaksa.


He also alleged former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga is busy fulfilling the UNP’s personal agenda, instead of protecting the SLFP identity.


Criticising Kumaratunga’s planned SLFP Convention, which is to be held on 5 November, SLFP General Secretary, MP Dayasiri Jayasekara, told the Media yesterday (29) that those who participate in the Convention would be UNPers masquerading as SLFPers. He urged the people not to be fooled by Kumaratunga’s actions.


“Since it has been revealed that the New Democratic Front Presidential candidate, Minister Sajith Premadasa’s Presidential campaign is ruined, now he is trying to create unwanted tension within the community that is supporting Rajapaksa. The UNP-led team headed by Ministers Mangala Samaraweera, Premadasa and Malik Samarawickrama are preparing  to ruin Rajapaksa’s campaign, by bringing out false videos and spreading rumours,” Aluthgamage alleged, adding that these plans will be activated from 1 to 14 November.
