Former Chief Justice Sarath N Silva stated that he boarded the political stage ‘for the first time in his life” since he could not stand by and watch President Rajapakse violate all constitutional norms. Sarath N Silva made these comments addressing a huge rally at Ampara (05th) held in support of General Fonseka.
He further stated ; “ Although the Supreme Court directed the Government to reduce the price of petrol, the Government did not. However, one year later, they reduced the price, confirming that the Supreme Court decision was right.”
“ They are also now spreading a malicious rumour saying that I am trying to amalgamate the north and the east. The two provinces were separated by a Supreme Court decision and there is no need to unite them again. The Government cannot stop the power of democracy marching towards victory – I invite all Sri Lankans to vote for democracy and restoration of law and order – by voting for General Fonseka.” from lankatruth
