The United National Party (UNP) today insisted that it stands for a united Sri Lanka and urged the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) not to spread hatred among the communities in the country.
Media Minister and former UNP Parliamentarian Gayantha Karunathilake said that the UPFA has no topic to discuss ahead of the August 17 Parliament election and so they are attempting to create communal disharmony.
“Do not attempt to set fire to this country by using the election stage to incite racial hatred,” Karunathilake said at a press conference today.
The UPFA has been questioning the stand of the UNP on the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) election manifesto saying the TNA manifesto looks to divide the country.
Karunathilake said that the UNP clearly stands for a united Sri Lanka and so no one needs to have doubts over that. (Colombo Gazette)
