COLOMBO (News 1st) – The Opposition Leader shared his thoughts on the formation of an alliance between the SLPP and the SLFP while attending an event with Minister Ravi Karunanayake this morning in Mutuwal.

The event was organized to declare open the Mukkulathor Cultural Centre by the Sri Lanka Mukkulathor Cultural Association of Mutuwal.

Journalist: The SLFP National Organizer says S.B. Dissanayake’s SLPP membership is an obstruction to the current discussions.

Mahinda Rajapaksa denied this statement and when a journalist stated that the SLFP does not seem content and it might lead to the disagreement in the formation of the alliance, Mahinda Rajapaksa responded that some members do not see the discussions in a positive manner as they want to discuss with the UNP.

He added that however, the majority of the members want to join SLPP as they are anti-government and want an anti-UNP movement.

Mahinda Rajapaksa went on to note that he would not believe the president would form an alliance with UNP and was confident that talks between SLPP and SLFP would be fruitful.

Following the departure of Mahinda Rajapaksa, speaker Karu Jayasuriya attended the event.

Ravi Karunanayake, Minister of Power & Energy noted that the Speaker,  Party Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe, Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa, himself, the leaders of the United National front as well as Mano Ganesan, Digambaram, Rauff Hakeem, Rishad Bathiudeen, Champika Ranawaka, Rajitha Senaratne and all others are working together to secure a Sri Lankan identity.

“We will create an environment where all can call this country our country”, he concluded.
