UNP Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella says that the government has lost two thirds of its power, with several government ministers pledging their support to the Common Candidate.
He made this statement at a public rally in Yatinuwara on Thursday morning.
UNP MP, Lakshman Kiriella said that he is disappointed about Tissa Attanayake, because after suffering for many years in the opposition and when the time has come to reap the harvest, he jumped on to the sinking ship. And that however, he cannot change his destiny.
[quote]I need to tell you another important news. The government has lost two thirds of its power after two more ministers from the government defected yesterday. We can create a majority power ourselves now if we want. Now the SLFP is calling me because I too was once a part of them. So now they are calling me too. However nothing has happened to us[/quote], said Lakshman Kiriella.
Meanwhile, UNP Central Provincial Councillor, Mayantha Dissanayake stated that today this country is in the midst of a critical battle. President Mahinda Rajapaksa would have never expected that his
General Secretary, Former Mahaweli Minister and Minister of Health, Maithripala Sirisena would stand up against his rule.
Subsequent to this public rally, the group present, engaged in a protest march in opposition to the election-related violence which took place over the past few days in the Kandy District.
The group which marched from the UNP office in Yattinuwara to Pilimathalawa created awareness among the public there.
