Maithri, Chandrika, Mahinda should unite for strong regime

President Maithripala Sirisena, Former Presidents Chandrika Kumaratunga and Mahinda Rajapaksa should unite to form a strong SLFP government, Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Treasure S.B. Dissanayake said.

He was addressing a workshop organised by the SLFP Women’s Front yesterday at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute.

He said that forming a SLFP government under President Maithripala Sirisena is urgent and that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa should be its Prime Minister.

“We should not forget minor political parties - Mahajana Eksath Peramuna, Communist Party, Lanka Sama Samaja Party, National Freedom Front, and Pivithuru Hela Urumaya - when forming a SLFP government as they have contributed immensely to cement our unity. We have to work with party leaders Dinesh Gunawardena, Wimal Weerawansa, Vasudewa Nanayakkara, Udaya Gammanpila closely to form a strong government,” he said.

SLFP General Secretary Prof. Rohana Lakshman Piyadasa said social, political and economic knowledge of female LG members must be enhanced to maintain good leadership qualities.

“They just follow the Central Committee decisions. Instead they should work with the general public to identify their requirements and try to fulfill them,” he said.

He said they must work closely with Grama Niladaris and Agrarian Development Officers to get information about their areas.

Former Deputy Minister Sumedha G. Jayasena, SLF Chairman Sarath Kongahage, Director Saman Weerawansa, SLFP Women’s Front members and officials participated.
