Would not undermine trust SLFP placed on me

Presidential hopeful of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa said he would not undermine the trust that the SLFP has placed on him even after they form a new administration in the future.
He made these remarks addressing the ceremony held to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) at the Western Province Aesthetic Resort this morning (19).

Rajapaksa said there is no need for baseless fear that the agreement between him and the SLFP would affect the party’s policies and the identity.

UPFA Parliamentarians Mahinda Amaraweera, Nimal Siripala de Silva and several other SLFP members along with the chairman of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Prof. G.L. Peiris were present at the ceremony.
