JVP unfazed by Gota’s potential presidential run

Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Wednesday, 16 May 2018 00:00


The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) yesterday asserted that they were not worried about Gotabaya Rajapaksa contesting the 2020 presidential election as he could easily be defeated.

“Gotabaya is the weakest political link in the Rajapaksa family. Since we have defeated Mahinda Rajapaksa himself, we are not worried about any possible upcoming challenges posed by Gotabaya,” said JVP politburo member K.D. Lalkantha.

Former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who recently unveiled his vision 2030 for Sri Lanka promising to transform the country’s economy, is widely considered a potential candidate for the 2020 presidential election.
