Let’s take the people’s struggle to the streets: Opposition Leader (VIDEO)

The manner in which the government works must be stopped and the only force which can stop it is the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) said Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa on the occasion of opening MP Harin Fernando’s SJB Head Office in Wattala today (01).

Pointing out that the time has come to take the people’s struggle to the streets, the Opposition Leader added that the government’s arbitrary conduct can only be stopped by such a people’s struggle. The country is suffering from such a dire situation due to the wrong decisions taken by the government, he added. Premadasa also emphasised that a responsible leader should be taking a step back and change the course of action into the right path, had he committed a mistake.

The Opposition Leader also added that the entire country has been subjected to a serious disaster due to the decision taken by the government on fertiliser and that the President, therefore, should be taking a step back and rectify the wrongdoings.

Premadasa went on saying that the government has done something they should not be doing in appointing the Presidential Task Force, reminding that this will be catering to the loss of reconciliation in the country.

Denying the allegations that he was collaborating with the Chief of Intelligence in working against his own party members, Opposition Leader Premadasa emphasised that some parties were spreading slanderous propaganda against his political movement and reminded that late President Ranasinghe Premadasa was also subjected to similar attacks.

He added that those involved in the Easter Sunday Massacre must be punished to the level of what is deserved by terrorists, promising that this will be made a reality under a SJB government. More important than age would be abilities, skills and talents, Premadasa went on, adding that these elements also apply to politics.

The Opposition Leader recognised MP Harin Fernando to be a revolutionary figure in politics, pointing out that the MP never hesitated to take challenging decisions, as he has the strength to move to the top of the country.
