COLOMBO (News 1st); A meeting between the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Parliamentary Group and the former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa is currently being held at the President's House under the patronage of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

This will be the first time that a group of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna parliamentarians will meet the President after the departure of the Government led by Mahinda Rajapaksa.

MP S.M. Chandrasena, addressing the media before the commencement of the meeting said that it does not matter who takes responsibility as long as that person can assure fertilizer to the farming community and is able to put an end to fuel and gas queues. 

Moreover, he said that the current alliance does not mean that the party would follow the policies of the newly-appointed PM Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Meanwhile, Attorney-at-Law Premanath C. Dolawatta pointing out that there is a great responsibility to ensure the rule of law remains in the country, said that people are suffering due to the gas and fuel shortages, among other problems.

"I also do not share the same policies that Ranil Wickremesinghe does. What Wickremesinghe has done in the past is indeed questionable. However we need to forget all that and unite at this time to solve the current crisis," he added.
