COLOMBO (News 1st): While the new government was holding its rally in Battaramulla today (November 5), the ‘Jathika Sewa Sangamaya’ staged a protest against the new government opposite the Fort Railway station. The protest was joined by Trade Unions affiliated to the United National Party, representatives of the United National Front and Civil Society activists.
UNP MP Mujibur Rahuman said at the event that Sri Lanka has been cornered from the global community. MP Rahuman pointed out that Japan has slashed funding while the EU is threatening to withdraw GSP+.
“We built this reputation with a lot of hard work. The President, who said that the International community is now our friend, has come and brought in the man who was rejected by the world through the back door and made him sit in that seat,” he said.
Rahuman also added that the International community has “already left”.
The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna and the Tamil National Alliance met today at the Opposition Leader’s Office in Colombo. The meeting was attended by TNA Leader R. Sampanthan, MP M.A. Sumanthiran, Leader of JVP Anura Kumara Dissanayake, Bimal Ratnayake and K.D. Lalkantha.
Following the meeting, representatives of both parties said an agreement was reached to defeat unconstitutional acts within the parliament.
