A major rally is to be staged near Parliament on Monday in support of Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) Parliamentarian Rohitha Abeygunawardena urged the public to gather near Parliament on Monday to show their support for Rajapaksa.
Abeygunawardena said that earlier the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) had staged rallies in Colombo against the Government but now the rally will be in support of the Government.
UPFA MP Susil Premjayantha said that the new Government will show through the rally that it has more support than the United National Party.
He said that there is no intention to surround Parliament during the rally but to only show the public support the Government has. (Colombo Gazette)
