UNPers join the Freedom Alliance

Jul 8, 2011 12:18:36 PM - itnnews.lk

A large group of traditional United National Party supporters has pledged support to the Government and the President, rejecting the behaviour of the opposition in the face of international challenges.

More than 500 UNP members of Thalakolawewa in Thalawa joined the Freedom Alliance. They secured membership of the Alliance from North Central Chief Minister Bertie Premalal Dissanayake. The UNP group which joined the Alliance included the Secretary of the Thalakolawewa UNP Branch Society and Youth Organization Ranjith Rupasinghe and the staff. They said it was unethical for the opposition to work for narrow political objectives without supporting the country’s sovereignty in the face of world challenges.
