President Mahinda Rajapaksa has claimed that eight websites, run by one person, are bringing evil to the country.
He made the comment during a speech to expatriate Sri Lankans in Thailand during a meeting in Bangkok on May 29.
The president said the 30-year-old war has ended and all communities are now able to live in unity and peace.
The country is maintaining an 8.3 per cent economic growth, while there is a 22 pc increase in development in the north, an indication the amount of work done for the province, he said.
However, there is a society which is distorting our journey, charged the president.
He added that these eight websites, run by one person under one institution, is slinging mud and campaigning in order to paint a wrong picture about the country.
