Ranil calls for concerted effort to defeat C-4 propaganda


by Piyasena Dissanayake

Opposition and UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe on Saturday called for a concerted effort to clear Sri Lanka’s name vis-à-vis the Channel 4 documentary aimed at demonizing the country.

The government should shed petty political differences and cooperate with all patriotic forces for that purpose because the Channel four propaganda adversely affected the country as a whole, the Opposition Leader said addressing a UNP rally at Ehaliyagoda.

The government ought to exercise patience and act cautiously in dealing with the international community, the Opposition Leader said.

It was not the first time the Channel 4 television had telecast

stories accusing Sri Lanka of war crimes, the UNP Leader said adding that the government had failed to preempt the Channel 4 propaganda.

Mere denials and emotional outbursts would not help counter the anti-Sri Lanka propaganda and the government had to get its act together, he said.
