Five cabinet ministers of Mahinda Rajapaksa government have licenses to import ethanol and they are owners of large distilleries says common candidate Maithripala Sirisena.
Speaking at a rally held at Beruwala Mr. Sirisena further said, “They say they would win by hook or by crook. This is said to mentally frustrate the voters. We would never leave room for such acts. We would never allow them to win by hook or by crook. They would never win.”
