SLPP's  presser to respond Gammanpila cancelled on order from the top

The Sri Lanka Podujana Party has cancelled a press conference which was to be held today(14)  to respond to Petroleum Minister Udaya Gammanpila over the fuel hike controversy, sources said.
The press conference was to be addressed by SLPP General Secretary Sagara Kariyawasam who had previously demanded Gammanpila to accept the responsibility of the fuel hike and resign from his ministerial post.
Gammanpila responded to Kariyawasam on Sunday, saying the fuel hike was a collective decision of the government and had even challenged Kariyawasam for a debate.
Accordingly, the press conference was organised to respond to Gammanpila and it is now learnt that on the instructions from the top level, the presser has been cancelled.
