Maithri Convenes a Series of Rallies for the Local Election Campaign !


President Maithripala Sirisena has organized a pre-propaganda campaign for the local elections in January 2018 by organizing meetings throughout the country.
Though he has informed the senior members of the party that he is going to hold such meetings to ensure the victory for the SLFP, the real purpose of this is to ensure his political power. The President has decided to take this step to show his power in the local government election with the support of the joint opposition, including former President Mahinda Rajapakse. Accordingly, massive budget is to be allocated for propaganda activities, large number of cutouts and decorations similar to expenditure incurred by President Mahinda Rajapakse during his regime.
It also aims to hold large number of propaganda rallies drawing big crowds being transported using state transport services with maximum publicity using government and other media loyal to the president.
