PM claims Gotabaya is promoting abattoirs


SLPP candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa was promoting the establishment of abattoirs in each household, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said on Tuesday addressing an election rally at Anuradhapura.

On the other hand NDF candidate, Sajith Premadasa was committed to promoting Buddhism in the country, Wickremesinghe said.

"Look at Gotabaya’s manifesto. Page 44 of the manifesto says that ‘financial and technical support will be provided to commence organic meat production at the household level. They are trying to promote abattoirs at household levels, this has never been done before."

Wickremesinghe added that the current administration had spent Rs. 4 billion to develop Buddhist temples alone. "We made the Thripitaka a world heritage and made ‘Mihinthalawa’ a national heritage site. On the other hand our opponents want to make Sri Lanka a slaughter house," he said.
