JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake says that the statement made by Minister Rajitha Senaratne, saying that the National Executive Council's decision to arrest former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, is false.

Expressing his views at a rally held in Polonnaruwa yesterday, he stated that the National Council does not possess legal powers to take such decisions.

In addition, JVP leader further stated that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and his political team has now become a faction instigating racism.
