Common Candidate Maithripala Sirisena wearing a Narendra Modi type dress at his first election rally after nominations has become a talking point.
Although it was widely speculated that there would be cross overs announced during the rally none of that happened.
Before the commencement of the rally, four unreserved seats were Kept on the stage to indicate that there will be crossovers during the event. Many names were mentioned in connection with possible crossovers, but none of the ‘suspicious’ MPs were seen in the vicinity of the rally.
Taking the suspicion to a new level, the Twitter account of presidential candidate Maithripala Sirisena tweeted just minutes before the commencement of the rally saying ‘rumours can be true’.
Throughout the rally however, leaders of the common opposition indicated that there will be more and more crossover in the coming days.
