Dr. Rohan Pallewatte says the coming of Gotabaya Rajapaksa as a presidential candidate is of no challenge to him at all.
Dr. Pallewatte made these sentiments in delivering an interview to 'Lanka News Web'.
He emphasized Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is not the first person to contest for the upcoming presidential election, upon which his rivalry as a candidate was first predicted by him three years ago.
Pallewatte added he is challenging the two main camps upon delivering an alternative solution for the sake of the country.
Therefore, such rivalries would not be problematic, hence those who love this country would gather to but one place, Pallewatte further emphasized.
Failure by splitting between the two parties was proved too many times over the decades, to which a sustainable long-term plan had never been implemented, he added.
"If the Rajapaksas had a sustainable mechanism of developing the country as they claim, the country wouldn't have been collapsed within five years of time," he said.
