More divisions and factions in UPFA than in UNP - Dayasiri

"The UPFA government is more divided than the UNP. The government speakers revel in talking what is happening in the UNP. We are now better organised and united after the 17 dissidents from our party joined the government" said the Kurunegala District MP, Dayasiri Jayasekara addressing a special seminar on the forthcoming Southern Provincial Council elections.

The seminar was held at Hill Top Hotel in Akuressa, organised by the Akuressa Div. Balamandalaya of UNP.

The Matara District Group leader of UNP candidates and former SPC member Pathirana presided.

MP Jayasekara said "The government’s popularity is declining due rising prices of all consumer goods and many other problems facing the people. "Unemployment problem is increasing and education system is ruined. The people are now living in abject poverty and have lost all faith in the government".

The intelligent voters in the South should cast their votes in favour of the UNP to express their dissatisfaction with the government. They should not repeat the same mistake done by the 14 lakhs of UNPers at the Western Provincial Council elections by remaining without voting" he said.

Rosy Senanayake, head of the Opposition, Western Provincial Council, said, the credit for winning the war against the LTTE should go equally to the UNP as it was they who made war veteran Karuna Amman to abandon the LTTE.

Sagala Ratnayake, MP Matara District, Gayan Karunathilake, MP and Media Spokesperson of UNP, Dayananda Wickramasinghe, former Minister, Buddhika Pathirana, former SPC member and Matara Dist. Group Leader of UNP candidates, Kapila Gamage, Chairman Malimboda PS and Matara Dist. Candidate, B. P. Chandana, Opposition Leader, Akuressa PS and Matara Dist. candidate were among the other speakers.
