Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Leader Sajith Premadasa said, under his watch, there will be no room for the emergence of any form of ultra-nationalism, extremism, religious violence and terrorism.
He emphasised that a SJB Government will totally eliminate all type of extremism and terrorism.
“I am ready to face any kind of probe into charges directed against me for having misappropriated funds belonging to the Central Cultural Fund.
I cannot be intimidated through the spread of canards and innuendos. During my official term as the Minister of Cultural Affairs, I had not even sipped a cup of tea using the Ministry coffers. As my late father famously stated in his last speech to the public, our political rivals may continue to sling mud at us, they could even assassinate our character as well, but they will not be able to silence the truth forever,” he said.
He made these remarks while addressing an Election rally in Borella.
