SLPP and allies will romp home with majority - Weerakumara

The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) led alliance will achieve a greater victory in the context of the UNP’s desperate leadership struggle over a symbol and ideology, Sri Lanka Freedom Party spokesman Weerakumara Dissanayake said.

Addressing a media briefing at SLFP headquarters yesterday he said that all the constituent parties of the alliance led by the SLPP have agreed to contest under the ‘Pohottuwa’ (flower bud) symbol. “We will not fall into the same predicament as the UNP. The ideology of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa was made a victory by the masses.The next step is to have a strong Parliament with a two thirds majority,” he said.

He said the UNP is desperate and hopeless regarding their leader and their symbol, therefore it is an added advantage for the SLPP led alliance. “SLPP led alliance is moving forward peacefully. We have a vision and an honourable leader. A greater victory is certain. Even some UNPers are willing to join hands with our coalition. A country needs a proper plan and a proper leader. The country did not have any of these during the last five years. The country is blossomed up with new hopes by now,”he said.

He said the Central Bank bond scam is an organized crime which was steered by former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and added that when the law takes its course Ranil Wickremesinghe also will be arrested. “The Attorney General has directed to obtain arrest warrants against several suspects in the bond scam case including the former Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake.The previous government misled the public by bringing up useless procedures and misused political powers. Arjuna Mahendran disclosed the fact that Ranil Wickremesinghe directed the bond scam. Therefore Ranil Wickremesinghe will be arrested when the law takes its course,” he added.
