President engaging in constitutional repression – Lal Kantha


President of the National Trade Union Centre (NTUC), K.D. Lalkantha claimed that President Ranil Wickremesinghe is engaging in constitutional repression.

He also claimed that some professors were being brought in one by one to support Wickremesinghe’s ideology and fill the televisions with various conversations.

He was speaking at a rally of political and labour leaders in Nugegoda.

“Ranil Wickremesinghe began his work in the middle of the night, confronting peaceful protesters at Galle Face. Following that, a number of people were arrested and imprisoned. The third task was to get the emergency law passed in the legislature. After that, the work of suppressing the protesters began. Ranil Wickremesinghe has done nothing so far,” he said.
