The Democratic Left Front convened a media briefing in Colombo on Fridaywhere journalists raised questions on the future plans of the Joint Opposition. Questions were also raised as to whether a group of MPs of the Joint Opposition are having talks with the UPFA

“If that is so, then their political journey will be a journey to hell”,charged the General Secretary of the Democratic Left Front,Vasudeva Nanayakkara in reply

He added that they have been shunned  even by their own constituency and not even the provincial councillors support them, but only one or two random people support them.

“Our need is to pull away all the SLFP members who are currently with the government”, said General Secretary Nanayakkara who further noted that there is also a need to draw in UNP members who may be opposed to the dictatorial figure of Ranil Wickremesinghe and these two groups will be united to form an intermediate government until the next elections

Vasudeva Nanayakkara also explained his non-participation at the May Day rally noting that visiting Cuba, the birthplace of creating a new society for the whole of humanity, was a pilgrimage in terms of his political life.

He pointed out that Sri Lankan newspapers published articles that visiting Cuba and not attending the May Day rally were due to difference in opinion with the Joint Opposition.But that is a complete lie and was just a last attempt made to salvage the May Day Rally held in Galle, which was a bankrupt rally, said Nanayakkara.
