SLPP denies poster bearing faces of Gota and Hizbullah

The SLPP media unit has denied any connection with the poster campaign bearing faces of M. L. A. M. Hizbullah and SLPP presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapakse.

The SLPP Media Spokesperson Dalas Alahapperuma issuing a press statement said the campaign was organised by the camp of the opposition candidate.

Alahapperuma added that the campaign was initiated to defame Rajapakse.

He said the attempt was a clear demonstration of the opposition’s tension in the face of upcoming defeat at the presidential poll.

Former Eastern Governor Hizbullah is contesting the forthcoming presidential election as an independent candidate under the symbol of the ‘Camel’.
