Govt destroying democracy – Sajith


Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa alleged that President Ranil Wickremesinghe’s “Rajapaksha shadow government” is currently using State violence to scare the people.

The Opposition Leader was speaking at a meeting held yesterday (2) with the lawyers affiliated to the National People’s Assembly for Democracy and Social Justice.

“The Government is destroying democracy and we should stand strong against this. The civil society that stands for democracy is being harassed and threatened,” he added. Premadasa said a serious responsibility has been assigned to the legal community and expressed his gratitude for their support in protecting the rights of people.
