President refutes allegations against his administration over Easter Sunday attack

Colombo, July 23 (BAN/ AD): President Sirisena has rejected all claims that his administration failed to prevent Easter Sunday attacks. He said this while addressing the ‘Sathviru Abhiman’ welfare project dedicated for the Tri-Forces, Police and Civil Security Department personnel held at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium.

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena said as a government his administration fulfilled its duties and responsibilities after the attacks and the terrorist organization that carried out these attacks were wiped out from the country.

President said “I am ready to discuss with any person openly, if he has any issue. The discussion can even be conducted before the media.”

President has come under attack from opposition for failing to judge intel input received and preventing terror attacks. President said appointing commissions to probe alleged fraud and corruption under previous government as well as the current government and his open battle against dealers, drug kingpins and criminals are some clear testimonies to his forthrightness.

President expressed deep condolences for the victims of Easter Sunday attacks.
