In a five page hard hitting letter to Mahinda Rajapaske, Maithripals Sirisena has categorically stated that he would not appoint him as Prime Minister in the event UPFA win majority of seats.

If Mahinda looses all the fraudulent money makers of Mahinda’s associates will face jail. and the money will be taken back by the government.

But this time he had openly requested the public to ”To Vote and send good men and women to Parliament (from any party)”
