UPFA candidates urged not to criticize JHU, JVP

[TamilNet, Saturday, 04 March 2006, 00:14 GMT]
The ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) leadership has instructed its candidates contesting the forthcoming local council elections not to criticize the policies of Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) and the all monks' party Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU), said Mr.Mathiripala Sirisena, Minister and the General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), main constituent of the UPFA addressing a conference held recently in Colombo, sources said. "UPFA candidates should confine their electioneering to unveil their plans to develop their respective local authorities when they win," he added.

Candidates contesting about three hundred local authorities on behalf of the UPFA participated in the conference, sources said.

Mr.Mathiripala Sirisena requested the UPFA candidates to cooperate with the law enforcement authorities in conducting the poll without any incident.

"Currently majority of local authorities are administered by the United National Party (UNP) and rate payers do not benefit from the way the councils are administered. UPFA candidates should bring these shortcomings to the notice of ratepayers during their pre-election meetings and should outline their target plans and proposals of development projects that they will bring to their constituency," Mr.Mathiripala Sirisena said.
