Ranil calls for Opposition unity

A group of Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Parliamentarians has informed UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe that a formidable force against the Government cannot be formed without the latter.

UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has told the SJB Parliamentarians that all Opposition forces should united against the Government as everyone has fallen into its trap.

Wickremesinghe was addressing a group of SJB Parliamentarians in Colombo.

The SJB Parliamentarians have said that forming an anti-Government force would not be possible without Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Wickremesinghe have told the SJB Parliamentarians how he stressed the importance of unity during the last election, recollecting a Jathaka story in the Buddhist literature where quails under the grip of a fowler managed to escape with the net that cast upon them through unity.

Another group has joined the discussion with these MPs and the two sides have had lengthy discussions on the situation in the country due to the disappointment of the people by the actions of the Government.

He has said that a formidable force can be formed against the Government if the young leaders from both parties work together.
