UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa over the weekend denounced allegations that he had obtained a cheque from Perpetual Treasuries Chief Arjun Aloysius.

Minister Premadasa responded to an allegation made by Member of Southern Provincial Council D. V. Upul.

Mr. Upul who threw challenge at Mr. Premadasa asking him to submit an affidavit to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya and prove that he had not obtained money from Aloysius.

Mr. Premadasa responded to this allegation while speaking during a ceremony to donate a bus to Viharagala MV in Sooriyawewa recently.

“I am not a robber who had taken money from Aloysius. I can swear by my late father President Ranasinghe Premadasa and my mother that I have not obtained any cheques or cash from Aloysius,” Mr. Premadasa said.

He said one who had accused him of taking money from Perpetual Treasuries Chief is a person who is engaged in trafficking drugs in Hambantota.

“Those who are accusing me are engaged in trafficking drugs using ‘easy cash’ in the district. I will not hand over affidavits to any one just to please drug traffickers in the Hambantota District,” he added. He also accused Mr. Upul of being involved in the underworld activities.

Mr. Premadasa said he will only answer to people in this country. “I am a politician who does not go after perks. I use what I get as a minister to the Sevana fund so that it could be used to provide shelter to the homeless,” he also said.

He said one should follow the teachings of Buddha who had said one has to have credibility before preaching. (Yohan Perera)

    Jumping out of gun ? Why sajith cant wait till commission report comes out ?

    Bala Monday, 18 June 2018 01:15 PM

    He cannot wait for report because DV Upul challenged him. Hennce he is right to speak out now itself.

    karthik Sunday, 17 June 2018 10:11 PM

    I think it is better to put out another list comprising the people who did not receive cash or cheque from Aloysius

    S Fernando Sunday, 17 June 2018 10:25 PM

    Yes because your sister runs an illegal money printing operation

    wickremasinghe Sunday, 17 June 2018 10:33 PM

    Haramanis Sunday, 17 June 2018 11:55 PM

    He only uses printed cash

    Yazzy Monday, 18 June 2018 12:14 AM

    GH Monday, 18 June 2018 01:03 AM

    Then any assets?

    sHeHaN Monday, 18 June 2018 01:36 AM

    NOW you’r publicly denying your not accepted cheque as you’re confident that the names of 118 MPs would never be released, and your now possibly laughing at Fonseka for jumping the gun and accepting it.

    Ash Monday, 18 June 2018 02:19 AM

    Admire your stance. You have shown you have the credibility to be the next leader of this country.

    Mevan Monday, 18 June 2018 04:02 AM

    The man who makes the allegations against Sagith is an ace crook played out money by producing low standard work during fishery harbour constructions in southern areas.

    Palli Kanda Monday, 18 June 2018 04:46 AM

    A Rajapakse master minded ploy to bring down a future threat to Gota/Namal. SP, probably the cleanest politician we currently have.

    Jude Monday, 18 June 2018 10:37 AM

    Sajith Premadasa " Clean as a Whistle" !!!

    Sincere Monday, 18 June 2018 02:58 PM

    How about any cheques Aloysius sent thro someone else received under the table and encashed by unknown people?

    Criminal Monday, 18 June 2018 05:46 PM

    RK said the same and all he got was just a super luxury condo in Trillium °-° ;

    Dhammika Monday, 18 June 2018 06:45 PM

    IF ALOYSIUS WANTED TO GIVE FUND FOR GOOD THINGS, HE SHOULD HAVE GIVEN SUCHCHARITHA FOUNDATION INSTEAD OF GIVING HIS ASSOCIATED POLITICIANS IN-TURN TO GIVE SUPPORT HIM AT COPE. ALOYSIUS CAN GIVE FUND FOR GOOD THINGS
