Samagi Jana Balawegaya ( SJB) Leader Sajith Premadasa yesterday tendered an apology to Colombo’s Archbishop His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith on behalf of its national list candidate Harin Fernando who criticised him recently.
Mr. Fernando blamed Cardinal Ranjith for reducing the UNP candidate’s vote base by five percent at the last presidential election.
“ I tender an apology to Cardinal Ranjith if the remarks made by Mr. Fernando hurt him in any way” Mr. Premadasa said in a statement.
“ I will not hesitate to tender an apology whenever anyone in our party does some wrong,” he added.
