Will not speak in support of Gotabhaya again – Ajith Prasanna (video) Featured

Convener of War Heroes for the Motherland, retired Maj. Ajith Prasanna, says he is sorry that he has said that Gotabhaya Rajapaksa will be the SLPP’s candidate at the next presidential election.

At several previous media briefings, he has declared that Gotabhaya should be given the candidacy.

That earned him the wrath of certain joint opposition MPs, including Kumar Welgama.

At one media briefing, Prasanna said the government has blackmailed Welgama.

Blackmailed by govt.

Responding, Welgama described Prasanna as a madman, and said he would not answer a madman, who could not obtain at least 5,000 votes after leaving his village and settling elsewhere.

The retired Army major told journalists yesterday (17) that his organization would not support anyone connected to fraud or corruption.
