Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) candidate Hirunika Premachandra today said she has no confrontation whatsoever with Janani Premadasa, the wife of SJB Leader Sajith Premadasa.
Ms. Premachandra said she has not been sidelined by Ms. Premadasa but was given a prominent place in SJB women’s wing. “ It was Ms. Premadasa who proposed that I should lead the Colombo branch SJB women’s wing,” Ms. Premachadra said.
“I was never chased by her, though some claimed it was the case after a video clip started circulating in social media and mainstream electronic media. Ms. Premadasa only informed that a special seat was allocated for me at the SJB women’s wing launch. I gave a speech as well at the event,” she said.(Yohan Perera)
