SJB higher-ups accused of deceiving candidates!

Beruwala Mayor Masaai Mohammed accused the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) leaders of deceiving him.

Although he was invited to contest for the Beruwala Municipal Council from the SJB, he said his name was removed from the list during the handing over of nominations.

Mayor Mohammed said that it is a serious issue that the decisions taken by SJB leaders are not being implemented.

“On the last day of handing over nominations, at 8.30 am, they handed over the list without my name. The SJB leader posed for photos with me as well. That day, we all made a pledge to make the SJB victorious. They broke the promise and betrayed my trust. People are angry now. The people who were with the SJB have completely lost faith in the party, especially in Beruwala. How can Sri Lanka be salvaged in this manner? The leader’s leadership qualities were not shown at that moment. How can such a weak leader rule the country?”

Meanwhile, Kelaniya Pradeshiya Sabha Opposition Leader Vipula Peiris, who had supported SJB Leader Sajith Premadasa during the Presidential and the General Elections, said his name has also been removed from the SJB nominations list for Kelaniya Pradeshiya Sabha.

His name has been removed from the nomination list due to serious objections by SJB MP Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka.
