Former President Maithripala Sirisena said today that the Easter Sunday attack was planned to disrupt the anti-drug campaign launched by him.

Speaking at a meeting in Higurakgoda, he said the anti-drug Champaign was successfully launched in his tenure as the President and added that he attempted to implement the death penalty for drug trafficking in a move to eradicate drugs.

He said for the first time in the world, drug traffickers filed a case in the Supreme Court against the President's move to implement the death penalty and that he was the first President to face such an incident.

He said after high profile drug traffickers such as Makadure Madush was arrested and remanded, drug dealers have been conspiring to kill him.

    Majority of this country had a faith on an idiot in 2015. For next generations to come know who you are. More you open your gaps more it stinks.

    It is very pathetic that the people voted for such a person to lead a country.

    I am 50 years old. I have seen heads of the state from Sirimavo to Gotabaya. But I have never seen a stupid like this.

    Poor boy, trying to cling to all the straws as he is getting washed away by the political storm. All he did was released a killer for money.
