Presidential candidate of the New Democratic Front Sajith Premadasa has demanded answers for four key questions from the Leader of the Opposition, Mahinda Rajapaksa, after Gotabaya Rajapaksa purportedly rejected his invite for a public debate.

In a letter addressed to Mahinda Rajapaksa, Minister Sajith Premadasa said after Gotabaya Rajapaksa refused to debate him on a public platform, the Opposition Leader must provide answers to several important concerns.

Accordingly, Minister Sajith Premadasa has demanded answers to concerns over a secret pact between the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna and jailed former Chief Minister Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan, the basis on which Former Chief Minister of North Eastern Province Varadharajah Permual decided to back Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the election, a purported agreement with former MP Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karun Amman and the reason behind MLAM Hisbualla who had allegedly been linked to Easter Sunday attackers, has requested Eastern voters to cast their second preference to Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the 2019 Presidential Election.

Minister Sajith Premadasa requested Mahinda Rajapaksa to provide answers to all the pertinent questions before the 2019 Presidential Election.

Presidential candidate of the New Democratic Front Sajith Premadasa is also of the view that Mahinda Rajapaksa who blatantly violated the Constitution in 2018 cannot propagate to the public about the importance of constitutional duties of politicians ahead of an election.
