Former Parliamentarian and JVP Politburo member KD Lal Kantha says both Sajith Premadasa and Gotabaya Rajapaksa are attempting to garner votes by instilling fear amongst the public.

Speaking to media in Kandy, Lal Kantha said the Presidential candidates must put forward plans for the country instead of creating uncertainty.

Lal Kantha noted that although they wrote books and called it Gotabaya’s war, he himself rejected it and told media that it was neither him nor his brother but the Army Commander who ended the war.

However the former MP stated that they are attempting to instil fear on the public by reiterating that there is an issue pertaining to national security

He pointed out that there is another group of people around Minister Sajith Premadasa who are also attempting to instil fear.

Lal Kantha reiterated that this group is pointing at Gotabaya Rajapaksa and stressing on fear, and added that they  are not speaking of how Sajith Premadasa will resolve the country’s issues.

Although this group is claiming they are liberal democrats, KD Lal Kantha says they have not stated what their Liberal Democratic plans are, once Sajith is elected.

He concluded that people are being terrorised by both sides as their only slogan is instilling fear.
