Rajitha Senaratne
Minister of Health Dr. Rajitha Senaratne has observed that former Parliamentarian late Bhartha Lakshman strived for the poor and the under privileged people and for their upliftment.

He was addressing the commemoration of the eighth death anniversary of former Parliamentarian Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra held at his statue in Kolonnawa on Tuesday. Speaker Karu Jayasuriya was the Chief Guest. Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra and Sumana Premachandra were present.

During his address, Rajitha said:

“Both Bharatha and I contested the1989 general election under the United Socialist Alliance banner. We were targeted by the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna.

Both of us thought we would be killed by JVP gunmen. I still can’t believe we survived their attempts. A lot of people who were with us were killed and because we made it, we thought we were invincible. But Bharatha was killed. He was not killed by JVP gunmen. But he was killed by a drug lord.
