The former Opposition Leader of the Kurunegala Municipal Council has also joined the United People’s Freedom Alliance. He served as the United National Party group leader of the Municipality. Vijayananda Wedisinghe met the President and assured his support to the Freedom Alliance. The meeting took place at Temple Trees. Senior Minister S.B. Nawinna, Deputy Minister Jayantha Herath and Mayor of the Kurunegala Municipal Council Nimal Chandrasiri were present on the occasion.
Mr. Wedisinghe said that he had been engaging in politics under the UNP for the past15 years and thought that it was high time to support the massive development mooted by the President sans wasting his time remaining in the opposition within the Kurunegala Municipal Council. He said that the UNP was today in disarray. Mr. Wedisinghe called on the people in Kurunegala to give a helping hand to develop the economy and support the Freedom Alliance to take control of the Municipal Council at the polls.
