True power now lies in the Aragalaya – Gunaratnam


While saying that Gotabaya Rajapaksa at least had the mandate of 6.9 million citizens of Sri Lanka, General Secretary of Frontline Socialist Party (FSP) Kumar Gunaratnam stressed it is hilarious to even think that Ranil Wickremesinghe, who failed to be elected to the Parliament, is currently working as the Acting President of Sri Lanka.

Addressing the media yesterday (13), Gunaratnam said, “No matter how difficult the lives of the innocent people of the country are, the rulers always implement their power hungry personal agendas. They are all working behind a document called Constitution. They are all conspiring while hiding behind the Constitution,” he said.

Now the true power lies in the ‘Aragalaya’. All the political parties should work with the people. If the authorities do not understand this simple fact and work against the Aragalaya, it would be betraying history, Gunaratnam said.

He also alleged that Ranil Wickremesinghe and his crowd are conspiring and said the people should not fall for their false attempts.
