Duminda Silva is not a drug trafficker - Gotabhaya Rajapaksha

MP Duminda Silva, an elected representative of the people, is not a drug trafficker and he has no connections with the underworld, defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has said.

In an interview with a national newspaper, the defence secretary has noted that Duminda Silva polled a large number of preferential votes and got elected to parliament.
The MP is close to the people and has tens of thousands of supporters among them, which made him to seek his assistance to develop Colombo, he has stressed.

The defence secretary has said that if he cannot work closely with such an elected representative, there is something wrong in democracy.

He has added that persons with petty political objectives and weak personalities were involved in a mudslinging campaign over this political connection.
