Ranil Wickremasinghe, the leader of the main opposition United National Party (UNP), has stated that Sri Lanka was being ruled by a government that disregards the sovereignty of the parliament. The parliament should be used as a platform to fight for the basic fundamental rights of the people, Ranil Wickremasinghe has said.
Addressing the UNP parliamentary group meeting held Sunday evening in the parliament complex, he added that abduction, killing and disappearance are on the increase in the country.
"No action has been taken by the law enforcement authority to bring the culprits to book. Time has come for every one to defeat the government that encourages such unlawful activities," he said.
