SLFP breakaway group sponsored by UNP -Dayasiri
The General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Dayasiri Jayasekara said the so-called Organisation to protect SLFP is simply working according to a contract given to them by the UNP.
And by that, they are trying to discourage the SLFP voters and break the votes of Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Speaking today (15 Oct) at Colombo Jayasekara said that the UNP has launched conspiracy through this organisation to grab the local councillors, organisers and at last the ministers of SLFP by promising them payments for their support for Sajith Premadasa.
Further, he said that the said organisation consists of former SLFP organisers who were removed as they failed to take even 10-20 votes in the elections.
He also said that it is the UNP who is behind the jeers against SLFP who ascend the stage at members at SLPP rallies.
The general secretary said that it was to protect the identity of the party, the SLFP decided to support Gotabaya Rajapaksa based on terms and conditions, “otherwise we could have also gone and just joined the SLPP,” he added.
Further, he said that SLFP with all its organisers has decided to launch an action plan to work against this organisation whose ultimate goal is to protect the UNP than the SLFP.
He also added that SLFP will be launching a separate election campaign to support Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
