SJB says no to UNP name Featured

The General Secretary of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya Ranjith Maddumabandara says that they have no intention of taking over the name of the United National Party (UNP).

Maddumabandara says that the people have proved where the UNP stands today and that what is needed is to protect the policies initiated by the UNP.

He also said that the true UNP is within the  Samagi Jana Balawegaya.

He added that since Samagi Jana Balawegaya has already been accepted by the people, there is no need to worry about a group that has been rejected.

The General  Secretary also stated that the Samagi Jana Balawegaya will soon become the force that will form a government by playing the role of the opposition.

He also called on those who rejected to vote and those who voted for the UNP to join his party.

Sajith's party and he too were destroyed!

Meanwhile, former MP Daya Gamage told the media that Sajith Premadasa had destroyed the UNP along with himself by creating a new party.

Ranil already told!

UNP leader and former prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said before the general election that the Samagi Jana Balawegaya was not UNP.

He said that the votes cast for the Samagi Jana Balawega would be votes cast against the UNP.
