Will fight against politics involving drug kingpins: Rajitha

Fisheries Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne today in Parliament vowed to fight against politics involving drug kingpins and underworld.

In response to some comments made against him by a private radio channel, he said that he never dares to take a tough stand against drug dealings and underworld activities.  Referring to the Mulleriyawa shooting incident, he said that Bharata Lakshman Premachandra who was killed in the incident was one of his close political colleagues.

“We did politics together in the Mahajana Party at that time. We do not shy away from drug dealers and underworld leaders. One radio channel has started attacking me. I am not bothered about it at all. I have been subjected to attacks more serious than this in the past. I will not stop my journey despite such attempts. I joined the government in the national interest. Yet, some persons joined the government only to get their licenses back,” he said.
