Elpitiya PS polls mirrors opinion of both majority and minority communities: GL Peiris


Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Chairman G.L.Peiris has observed that the results of the Elpitiya Pradeshiya Sabha (PS) election mirrored not only the verdict of the Sinhalese but also of the Tamils and Muslims in the entire country.

He was addressing the news media. He said:

“Plights including unemployment, economic downturn and increasing cost of living are not limited to Elpitiya. Therefore, the results can be generalized sans ethnic boundaries. If elected, Gotabaya Rajapaksa will not be the President for Sinhalese only, but for all communities. Mr. Rajapaksa has the backing of everyone.

Representatives of the Muslim community met SLPP leader Mahinda Rajapaksa following the Digana riots and expressed their disappointment over the government’s inaction to avert riots. They requested the former President to intervene and put an end to ethnic riots. Today, Muslim businessmen have no income as their businesses have been affected. Similarly, the Tamils are fed up with the government because it had failed to hold elections for Northern and other PCs.“
