Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga stated that she appointed Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Presidential candidate back then amidst opposition by many.

She had issued a communiqué recently stating that safeguarding the country was more important than protecting the Party.

In response to this, the Media Unit of Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has said that Former President Kumaratunga was making such statement to justify herself standing side by side with the UNP.

The media communiqué also stated that the 1999 Wayamba election brought disrepute to the party which is remembered by the people.

However, speaking at a meeting held in Agalawatte yesterday Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga expressed these views.
