The Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) says the peace that has been gained should be protected with dignity.
JHU General Secretary and Power and Energy Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka has observed that certain forces were engaged in activities that challenged the security of the country.
Speaking during the JHU’s 8th annual convention, Ranawaka has said the rumors being spread of a Grease Devil were aimed tarnishing the image of the armed forces and to bring disrepute to them.
He has said that some elements were trying to push the country backwards through a psychological operation when the country should move forward. Therefore, those who spread baseless rumors will be severely dealt with.
“We have to protect the peace we gained and protect dignity while developing and leading the country to the future. We should develop the country to suit our culture, people, religions and races. We do not need to follow any other Asian country,” Ranawaka has said.
