Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka, who referred to remarks made by UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake that fielding Fonseka at the presidential election as a common candidate was a mistake, said the UNP should feel ashamed about its political decision making.
“They must be ashamed at its political decision making. If at a crucial election it goes round the country telling people to vote for somebody and three years later they say it’s a mistake, how can you then believe or trust such a party. They may do this in the future as well,” he said,
Mr. Fonseka said those who are opposed to Thursday's (18) rally at Hyde Park are those who have the backing and the blessings of the President.
“We have our doubts and questions about the aspirations and objectives of those who are opposed to the rally. We expect everybody in the opposition to be a part of the rally unless they have the support and the blessings of the President,” he said. (Hafeel Farisz)
