The absence of SLFP Chief Organisers of Akmeemana and Ratgama Dr. Ramesh Pathirana and Mohand de Silva was conspicuous at the party’s inaugural promotional meeting in Galle under the auspices of President Maithripala Sirsena.

Instead, the party had opted for Galle District party Organiser Tisara Gunasinghe and Galle District Organiser Amarasiri Kuruwage to organise the promotional campaigns in Akmeenana and Ratgama.

A number of Provincial Councillors belonging to the party in Galle District kept away.

When contacted Mohan de Silva said that he had not been invited to the meeting.

He said, "We are loyal to the party and we would not like to see the party being divided, but what the hierarchy in doing is making us sick of the party and drive us away."
