Tissa report on May Day boycott

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake says he is compiling a report on the UNP May Day rally held in Jaffna yesterday which will include the names of UNP members who boycotted the event.

He said that the report will be submitted to the UNP working committee to decide on the course of action to be taken on those members.

Attanayake says the UNP had given permission to a select few to attend the R. Premadasa commemorative ceremony in Colombo instead of being present in Jaffna.

However he says some UNP members who had not been given permission were in Colombo instead of in Jaffna.

The report by the UNP General Secretary will also cover the outcome of the May Day rally in Jaffan which was headed by party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.

UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa, Karu Jayasuriya, Dayasiri Jayasekera and Budhika Pathirana were among those who were in Colombo at the R. Premadasa commemorative ceremony.  (Colombo Gazette)
