MP Duminda Dissanayake invited former President Maithripala Sirisena to face the plights of the country without avoiding them and take the leadership.
The group of SLFP MPs exiled from the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) said that they have not yet decided whether to contest the Local Government elections as an alliance.
At a press conference held at the Ministry of Agriculture yesterday (29), MP Dissanayake said that he and the other MPs still represent the SLFP.
Agriculture Minister Mahinda Amaraweera also participated in this press conference.
“We have not yet been removed from the SLFP. The SLFP-led alliance should also take the responsibility at least to some extent for the problems in this country today. We can’t keep avoiding these issues. The majority of the SLFPers are asking for answers to the problems and not governments or other measures,” he said.
