SLFP has no future outside SLPP – State Minister
He said that while appreciating their support at the Presidential Election, they would also give them the necessary respect and sincerely acknowledge that they were able to win a few more seats due to the support of SLPP. After the distribution of coconut saplings in Nugawela, Kandy, he spoke to the media on Saturday in line with the national programme to plant 4 million coconut saplings.
“As a separate party, the SLFP can negotiate and take decisions on their own. So if they want to cooperate with the government, they can stay, or they can leave.
But I would acknowledge that their departure would not cause any effect on the government as we are a government with a Two Thirds majority,” Amunugama said.
He said that those who bring impeachment or no-confidence motions will be able to see the power of the government after they bring them in. He added that although these can be presented, they cannot be won.
He added that the third COVID-19 wave is currently under control, and people must stick to the Health Ministry’s regulations. He said that Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) also protested, but they were not arrested as they adhered to health guidelines. “The issue is with the JVP and the Frontline Groups is that they are deliberately try to create a scene during their protests,” he added.
