Minister Maithripala Sirisena has said that all forces that are attempting to undermine the development and re-establish terrorism should be defeated during the Local Government Election. Minister Maithripala Sirisena expressed this view at the UPFA meeting at Welisara.
He said that the pro LTTE forces and the shadows of Prabhakaran are waiting to eliminate the Mahinda Rajapaksa Government. They desire to re-establish the LTTE authority in the country. Their obstacle is the Mahinda Rajapaksa Government, its security programme and the favour it has won in the international arena. He said that those who want to topple government to handover power to Ranil Wickremasinghe are attempting to re-establish terrorism in the country and drag it once again into war.
