Don’t talk nonsense about debate in front of kids: NPP tells Sajith

Colombo, June 15 (Daily Mirror)- Claiming that SJB leader Sajith Premadasa has evaded the scheduled debate with NPP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake on June 6, NPP Executive Committee member Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa said Premadasa must stop talking various things in front of kids about the debate now.

He told a news conference that there is no more discussions about a debate between NPP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake and SJB leader Sajith Premadasa.

"We agreed to a debate on June 6, the date proposed by Sajith Premadasa. But, he evaded it. People came to know that he is a leader who cannot even face a debate. The debate is over. We urge him not to talk various things in front of kids," he said.

Dr. Jayatissa said people expected a debate between the two leaders and said it should be the new political culture.

"In the USA, the main candidates of the presidential election to be held on November 5 agreed to participate in two debates on June 27 and September 10 as proposed by two media institutions. Sri Lankans inspired by such developments expected a similar debate here also," he said.
