Political alliance under ‘Helicopter’ symbol, no challenge to SLPP – Kariyawasam
The political alliance under the ‘Helicopter’ symbol poses no challenge to the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) at the upcoming Local Government Election, said Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) General Secretary, MP Sagara Kariyawasam.He was speaking to the media at the SLPP headquarters in Battaramulla yesterday.
Kariyawasam said those who formed the alliance under the ‘Helicopter’ symbol are a group of politicians who have robbed the votes cast in favour of the SLPP by the people and are going behind their own leadership dreams.
“They do not have a leader yet. Everyone in the group is expecting to become the leader. Can such an alliance lead the country?” he questioned. He said public agitation against the SLPP is a fabricated one and there was no such opposition from the grassroots level.
“The public has faith in the policies of the SLPP,” he said.
The SLPP General Secretary further said that despite the allegations levelled against the SLPP leaders over the Easter Sunday terror attacks, the country’s Apex Court has given a verdict revealing as to who is actually responsible for the attack.
