Mahinda’s new Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) party today claimed that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had made a deal with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) to get its (16 MP’s) support to defeat the no-confidence motion against him.
New Sinhala racist party SLPP Chairman G.L. Peiris said according to the agreement
- 650 acres of land illegally occupied by the Sinhale Armed forces in the North was to be released to their owners.
- Appoint officers of Tamil speaking as district secretaries in the North and East where Tamil is used by the majority.
This will lead to grave repercussions in the state sector. The Constitution allows any citizen, regardless of their ethnicity, to settle anywhere in the country and to work anywhere SLPP Chairman G.L. Peiris told a news briefing. Prof. Peiris said the TNA’s stance during the no-confidence motion debate proved it was another constituent of the government.
He also claimed that the leadership of the Opposition should be given to someone (a Sinhalese) named by the former president and current MP Mahinda Rajapaksa the leader of his SLPP party.
Mahinda Rajapaksha and his new SLPP Party are playing the Racist card after their defeat over the NCM brought by them against the current PM Ranil.
