Arjuna wants SLFP rebels sacked over Hyde Park rally



Ports and Shipping Minister Arjuna Ranatunga has demanded that SLFP members who attended the recent Joint Opposition rally at Hyde Park in Colombo be sacked from the party.

Minister Ranatunga told journalists after an inspection tour of the Magampura Port in Hambantota that President Maithripala Sirisena had given unbridled freedom to SLFP members. "There is a group within the SLFP who abuse that freedom and democracy.

They go on instigating people and rousing racism.

Many of those who held leading positions of the SLFP sometime back are supporting that campaign. Disciplinary action should be taken immediately against them."
