The United National Party (UNP) says it has not abandoned the idea of forming a National Government after the August 17 Parliamentary election.
UNP member Lakshman Kiriella said that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is firm on the idea of having a National Government which will result in the entire Parliament being the Government.
“The entire Parliament must look for solutions for this country. We cannot be like the former Government where we were divided and where minorities were harassed. The country cannot develop like that,” he said.
Kiriella also said that the opposition is now running scared as they see defeat at the August 17 Parliamentary election.
The former UNP Parliamentarian said that the attack in Kotahena was part of an attempt to scare the UNP and its supporters ahead of the election. (Colombo Gazette)
