The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) today claimed that it stands united as a political party contesting the August 17 Parliament election.
SLFP General Secretary Anura Priyadharshana Yapa said that the main goal of the SLFP at the polls next month is to defeat the Government and make former President Mahinda Rajapakasa the Prime Minister.
“We want to install a people’s Government after August 17,” the SLFP General Secretary said.
Yapa accused the Government led Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe of limiting most of its commitments to words and not action.
He said that the development of the country has been stalled after the new Government took office.
The former Minister also said that the new Government has turned its back on the countries which were very close to Sri Lanka.
Yapa called on the public to support the SLFP and the United People’s Freedom Alliance as it looks to make Rajapaksa the next Prime Minister and form a new Government for a new beginning. (Colombo Gazette)
