Sajith Premadasa Renews Challenge: Asks SLPP Candidate Gotabhaya Rajapaksa To Come For Debate With Entire Family
New Democratic Front candidate Sajith Premadasa renewed his challenge to SLPP candidate Gotabhaya Rajapaksa for a public debate over their policies and vision for Sri Lanka.
Addressing a meeting in Bingiriya yesterday, Premadasa said Rajapaksa could come with his entire family if he was scared to come alone.
“I will face the debate alone. I don’t need a partner. But, I invite my opponent to come with his entire family,” he added.
Premadasa’s challenge for public debate has not elicited any response from Gotabhaya Rajapaksa thus far.
The SLPP candidate has come under criticism from civil society and political activists over his stoic silence on Premadasa’s challenge.
