Minister Ravi Karunanayake says the Opposition is attempting to instil undue fear among the public claiming the Millennium Challenge Corporation grant will be detrimental to the country.

Speaking at a media briefing in Colombo today, Minister Karunanayake said a majority of people have rallied together to ensure the victory of the Presidential Candidate of the New Democratic Front, Minister Sajith Premadasa.

Minister Karunanayake noted that the MCC grant was something that the past government started, but one which the present government took the initiative to implement.

The Minister guaranteed that the MCC agreement does not pose a threat to National security, or to the country’s assets.

He further requested the opposition to reveal facts that claimed that the government is attempting to divide and sell the country’s land to foreigners.

Minister Karunanayake noted that the public has faith in the present government which is the the only party that can rule the country.

The Minister reiterated that people rallied to support them because the opposition through various programs isolated the citizens.
