New alliance within the SLPP! Featured

Backbenchers of the People's Front have reportedly formed a new alliance.

Their aim is to safeguard the government from the harmful actions of certain stakeholder parties as well as to draw the government's attention to the sensitive issues of the public.

According to a reliable source, the alliance has been formed with the blessings of the leadership with the purpose of defending the government against serious allegations leveled against it.

It is reported that over 30 backbenchers have participated in the maiden discussion of the alliance held at the MPs' lounge.

It is said that the parliamentarians have sent a letter, urging separate audiences with President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and the founder of the People's Front Basil Rajapaksa.
