President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa said today that the government has not entered into any political deal with Parliamentarian Rishad Badurdeen.
He said in a message posted in his Facebook that ensuring national security was the first and foremost responsibility of his government.
“I am not prepared to hand over the power of arresting or arbitrarily releasing people to politicians, as happened in the past. I will also take actions to rectify any omissions or mistakes made by the relevant authorities or officials,” he said.
“I emphasize that our government has not entered into any political deal with Parliamentarian Rishad Badurdeen,
I assure my citizens that I will not forsake the trust that they have placed in me and I will most certainly continue to work towards strengthening the built trust”, the President added.

Once Hajjul Akbar was released without any charges, though his movement sent Jihadists to Afghanistan, now another similar thing. What is actually happening?

Mr.President, We know very well your dealings with Hisbullah, Rizad and Zahran. Pls don't try to make us fool.

Uncle, deals are called deals because these are done behind the scenes. What a joker we have. Trump is better.
Ram Sunday, 04 October 2020 05:43 PM
His supporting 20A is his wish. Not a deal. These people make fake stories.
FF Sunday, 04 October 2020 05:49 PM
NO ONE CLAIMED THAT YOU HAD A DEAL. ONE OF THE GOVT HAD DONE THE DEAL. HE DESPERATELY WANTS ONE OF HIS MEMBERS INTO PARLIAMENT THRU NATIONAL LIST

We are expecting statesman out of you,that is why we voted you, as long as you do correct thing we are with you ,but politicians famous for deal making would spoil the scene, even they are within family circle

Mr. President, please order the CID to re-investigate Rishad and his brother and take appropriate action.
Leel Karunaratne M.K. Monday, 05 October 2020 01:50 PM
After the release of his brother, Badurdeen had told he will join the Govt. and work as a spy to Sajith Premadasa. So be aware absorbing this poisoners serpent.

We certainly hope so !! However Your Excellency has still not personally stated openly that ACSA,MCC,SOFA will not be signed by him and his Government. High time this was done to ease the anxiety of the people. THAT will then be the TRUTH., MM
