Certain white-clad politicians are accused of being the kingpins of drug trafficking of yesteryears

Minister Ranjith Madduma Bandara says that some of today's white-clad politicians had been the kingpins of drug trafficking of yesteryears. These same politicians had brought underworld figures to the fore. The Minister was speaking today at the Moneragala district phase of the 'Gam Peraliya' programme to renovate the Meedeniya bridge in Wellawaya. He also said law and order are important prerequisites for development. The Minster added that justice or freedom was non-existent and more than 15 journalists were murdered during the previous regime.
