The President says all in the government and the opposition should support him in his efforts to implement the law against all those who are responsible for the bond scam.

President Maithripala Sirisena says all in the government and the opposition should support him in his efforts to implement the law against all those who are responsible for the bond scam. Speaking at a public rally held in Kandy yesterday he said that for this purpose everyone should strengthen his leadership. He emphasised that he will always stand against fraud, corruption, theft, wastage, dictatorship and nepotism. Citing the statement voiced by the previous President that the Good Government regime has failed, President Sirisena called to mind how the previous President was rejected at two major elections.

He pointed out that whilst having two more years to complete his term of office, the previous President called for a presidential election, since he was unsuccessful in facing the challenges put forward by the international community and due to his inability to overcome the grave debt crisis that the country had plunged into.
