State Minister of Rural and Regional Drinking Water Supply Development Sanath Nishantha told the nation that the people are bigger than the law and therefore he is always a politician who stands up for the people.

The Minister of State said that the propaganda that his brother was in hiding due to the dozer incident in Anavilunda was untrue. He said that if the police wanted his brother at any time, he would be at home and if he was not arrested while doing so, it was the fault of the police and not his own.

However, he added that the allegations made in connection with his name were completely false.
