‘A military coup, a mere dream’ Featured

No one in Sri Lanka can gain power through a military coup, says cabinet spokesman Rajitha Senaratne.

He said so while addressing a function in Vavuniya, when journalists raised a remark by Dinesh Gunawardena.

In parliament yesterday, Gunawardena talked about a possibility of a military coup against the government, in light of a continuing repression of democracy.

Responding, Senaratne said a military coup would be what the joint opposition liked to have, as it knew gaining power democratically was not possible.

They are mere dreams, he added.
