Colombo, Oct 17 (BAN/ AD): Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa has accused presidential candidate Gotabhaya Rajapaksa of taking all war victory credit to the Rajapaksa family in the past. He pointed out that Gotabhaya Rajapaksa himself revealed the truth that the credit for the victory should be given to the then army commander.
Sajith told Presidential candidate Gotabhaya Rajapaksa created a fake identity by claiming the credit for war victory for the Rajapaksa family in the past. But, he had to reveal the reality recently. He noted that the true leader of the war was none other than former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka.
At al rally Sajith said “It is ironic that he himself had to reveal the truth about the great lie that have been told to the country and the world for 10 years that he and his brothers were the ones who won the war after defeating 30 years of terrorism.”
He added “The victory of the war was written to the Rajapaksa family by a patent, free deed. As a cruel joke of fate, the truth was revealed yesterday by my opponent himself. My opponent had to make it clear that Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka led the war victory in this country. But when they were in power, they imprisoned the war-winning commander since he contested against the Rajapaksas.”
