No rift in SJB, MPs’ issue settled- Kiriella
Chief Opposition Whip and SJB Kandy district MP Lakshman Kiriella said Party leader Sajith Premadasa had a discussion with MP Chaminda Wijesiri and the issue has been solved to a great extent.
MP Wijesiri at a recent press conference lashed out at the Opposition leader for attempting to gain power by making use of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking at a press conference, Chief Opposition Whip Lakshman Kiriella said that he also spoke to Wijesiri to settle the issue. “There is no rift within the SJB. We are marching forward under the able leadership of Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa,” he said.
He said that every MP should understand that they are in Parliament because Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa succeeded in retaining the village level vote base. Kiriella said that people at grassroots level are of the opinion that they will be well looked after if Sajith Premadasa comes into power. “The poor and downtrodden have been stranded today,” he said.
