Reiterating his call for a debate with his rival candidate at an election rally in Galigamuwa, Kegalle yesterday Premadasa said the people can have a clear understanding of the views, policies and programmes of the two main candidates at the upcoming election if a debate is held. “If Gotabaya is reluctant to come alone he can bring the entire Rajapaksa family with him. I will face them alone” he added.
Premadasa went on to say that his rival camp is currently engaged in a mud-slinging campaign against him and this was the main activity on the SLPP candidate’s stage.
