Regardless of the symbol the All Ceylon Makkal Congress (ACMC) would support opposition leader, Sajith Premadasa, ACMC leader Rishad Bathiudeen told the media, on Sunday.
Bathiudeen made this statement at the opening of a party office at Kurumankadu, Vavuniya. “It doesn’t matter what the symbol, Sajith Premadasa gets. We will support him,” he said.
Journalists told the ACMC leader that Premadasa had said that Bathiudeen would not be a part of his alliance. In that context, how could the ACMC contest on the Premadasa led alliance, journalists asked.
Bathiudeen said that Premadasa had made no such comment to him. He said that he would contest the Vanni district.
