Damitha Abeyratne joins hands with Sajith | Sri Lanka News

Social activist and cinema artiste Damitha Abeyratne yesterday said she had joined hands with opposition leader, Sajith Premadasa on behalf of the country.

While addressing a Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) rally in Polonnaruwa to extend her support, she said that she was appearing on a political stage for the first time, not because of anything but on behalf of the country.

We engaged in the Aragalaya campaign to chase away the Rajapaksas but not to chase away every leader who was appointed as president. We walked the talk, and all of them joined hands with us. There were no leaders in the Aragalaya, everyone gave leadership to it.

Abeyratne showered her praise on the people who came for the aragalaya. The Aragala campaign which we all were part of at Galle Face Green, saved the country. But we should save the country completely by chasing away the remaining thieves.

The groups that came to pursue Rajapaksa and who joined with the ruling party to pursue certain fraudulent motives are afraid to hear the name Sajith Premadasa, she said. She also stated that the people should obey and honour man of integrity.

During her speech, she recalled about the fear psychosis unleashed by terror elements during the 1980s. She remined that former President Ranasinge Premadasa took bold steps to control the massacre of innocent people during the period. (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)
