The opposition leader has accused the Rajapaksa family, who ascended to power in the guise of war victory, of acting as economic terrorists, pushing the nation into bankruptcy and devastation. Not content with the damage wrought, the leader alleges that the Rajapaksa family is currently basking in luxury under the protection of a president shielding economic terrorists. This revelation came during a Janapaura program held in Horavpatana on the 22nd.
The opposition leader condemned the Rajapaksas for destroying agriculture with substandard fertilizers and high-priced nano-fertilizers, promising legal action to reclaim stolen funds. Asserting a commitment to a ‘humanitarian mission,’ the leader declared that the Samagi Jana Balawega and the Samagi Jana Alliance would combat economic terrorism, countering the government’s alleged repressive dictatorship.
Sajith Premadasa, the opposition leader, outlined plans to establish a common era of prosperity for farmers, fishermen, labourers, the middle class, civil servants, and professionals through the Samagi Jana Balavegaya.
Contrasting the Samagi Jana Balavegaya’s actions with other parties merely brandishing files, the leader emphasized the revelation of corruption within the Supreme Court with the intelligence and lawyers of the Samagi Jana Balavegaya. Noting a one-fourth decision received through this process, the opposition leader criticized other parties for empty rhetoric.
Addressing the concerns of the agricultural community, the opposition leader pledged to resist the dominance of the rice mafia, support small mill owners, and stabilize agricultural product prices. Criticizing previous agriculture ministers in coalition governments, the leader pointed out a lack of implemented agricultural policies.
Highlighting the impact of microfinance on vulnerable populations, the opposition leader underscored efforts to save people burdened by debt and strengthen the lives of those affected by the Yan Oya movement.
In a final declaration, the opposition leader affirmed that the Samagi Jana Balawega and a Samagi Jana Sandanha government would not engage in deals or political alliances with the Rajapaksa family, vowing to bring them to justice for alleged theft and to reinvest stolen resources back into the country.
