Several SJB PC members rejoin UNP - Ruwan

UNP Deputy Leader Ruwan Wijewardene says that a number of Provincial Councillors who supported the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) at the last Provincial Council election have rejoined the UNP.

Wijewardene made this statement during a function held at the Peradeniya Rest House earlier this week.

He said that as the country is now ruled by a Government with a two-thirds majority, all Opposition parties should come to a common platform.

He expressed the opinion that all political parties must unite against the government to form a formidable opposition. He stressed that the country is facing a serious economic crisis and the people cannot make ends meet due to the loss of jobs and livelihoods. He queried how the Minister of Health can give directives that would help ensure the health and safety of citizens when the minister herself has contracted COVID-19.
