Harsha Apologizes: Says Mud-Slinging Handbills Against Gota Distributed In Kotte Without His Knowledge

November 11, 2019

State Minister Harsha de Silva said defamatory handbills against SLPP candidate Gotabhaya Rajapaksa had been distributed in his area without his knowledge.

"Had I known, I would never have approved it," De Silva said, addressing a press conference yesterday.

"I have always made policy arguments and I unconditionally apologize to all who were inconvenienced," de Silva said.

Local Government councilors representing the SLPP lodged a police complaint last evening that several close allies of de Silva were involved in distributing mud-slinging handbills against the SLPP candidate.
