Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) National Organiser Duminda Dissanayake met Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa and discussed preparations for Rajapaksa’s election campaign.
Rajapaksa, who was in Anuradhapura to attend the first SLPP election rally for the 2019 Presidential election, visited Dissanayake’s residence and had talks with him and other area representatives of the SLFP.
Dissanayake briefed Rajapaksa on the preparations being made to promote Rajapaksa among SLFP supporters.
He told Rajapaksa that they will focus only on the SLFP supporters as the SLPP will look to promote Rajapaksa among SLPP supporters.
The meeting took place after the SLFP had formally announced its decision to back Rajapaksa at the Presidential election.
