Samagi Jana Balawegaya has neither unity nor power – Former MP Weerakkody

The new political alliance, Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) formed under the leadership of Sajith Premadasa, which means a united force, retains neither unity nor power, yet it is simply a power craving opportunistic grouping with no vision for the country, former Galle District Parliamentarian Chandima Weerakkody said.

He was addressing a gathering of party members at Ginigala in Habarauwa, Galle on Tuesday (10).

“We are forever with people. We always take political decisions for the good of the country and its citizens.

We are confident that our recent political moves and strategies will greatly be endorsed by the majority of people. Today, the United National Party (UNP) is divided into several fractions. So, we will definitely secure the two-thirds majority in Parliament at the forthcoming General Election. Not only the people of the Habaraduwa Electorate, but people all over the country are rallying around us,” he said.

“We have assured the freedom of the judiciary, Attorney General Department and the Police. In observation of the development of recent incidents in Sri Lankan polity, it is obvious that the Attorney General and the Police Department function independently with no political or other interferences and influences,” the former MP further observed.

“Politicians of the Opposition in the recent past questioned continuously about the action taken against the offenders of the Central Bank Bond Scam. Now, legal procedures are being promptly executed against the culprits of the Bond Scam. When the action is taken against those fraudsters, they try to interpret such actions as dramatic enactments. When the country moves forward, we should appreciate such steps. The Opposition should learn to acclaim the good work done by the Government without criticizing everything for the sake being opposed,” Weerakkody said.
