Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Chief Organiser Thusitha Kularathne claimed that they have verifiable information to believe that Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa will receive more than 70 per cent of the Government workers’ votes.

Speaking at a Press conference yesterday (1), Kularathne claimed that with a total of 6.7 million votes from both the SLFP and the SLPP on his side, announcing Rajapaksa’s Election win will simply be a formality.

He claimed the project ‘Mahinda Chinthanaya’ which was conducted under former President Mahinda Rajapaksa helped develop the country to a great extent after the separatist war and added that he is certain Gotabaya Rajapaksa will prioritise the improvement of the country if elected.

Kularathne alleged that President Maithripala Sirisena was not able to complete all the promises he made was because he received zero cooperation from his Government.

Boralesgamuwa Municipal Council Chairman Anura Priyashantha added that if elected, Rajapaksa will ensure the living status of villagers is uplifted and will also develop the infrastructure of agriculture.

 Priyashantha claimed that Rajapaksa has the full support of the local Government and added that the Presidential hopeful is capable of ensuring the country’s security.

The SLFP clarified that though the Organisation to Protect the SLFP operates using the name of their Party, it is not an organisation the SLFP agrees with or is a part of.

Colombo Municipal Councilor Sharmila Gonawala said that people who lived in shanties were provided apartments in the city during Mahinda Rajapaksa’s Presidency and added that if elected, Gotabaya Rajapaksa has promised to bridge the gap between urban and rural development.

She alleged that the Colombo Municipal Council is one of the most corrupt Municipal Councils in the country and claimed that measures were taken to ensure the Council wouldn’t be a culprit to bribery and corruption during Mahinda Rajapaksa’s tenure.

She added that Gotabaya Rajapaksa promised to improve public transportation and introduce a systematic solution to waste disposal which the current Government has failed to do.
