Sri Lanka’s cricket stars react to May 09th violence

ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka’s star cricketers condemned the former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and the government for allowing pro-government mobsters to carry out attacks on non-violent demonstrators.

On Monday (09), following a meeting with Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, the pro-government supporters turned aggressive toward non-violent demonstrators who had set up a protest camp opposite the PM’s residency Temple Trees.

“The only violence was perpetrated by your “supporters” – goons and thugs who came to your office first before going on to assault the peaceful protestors,” Kumar Sangakkara the former-left hand batsman said replying to Mahinda Rajapaksa’s tweet.
