UNP to launch agitation campaign against UPFA government

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 21 February 2007, 11:20 GMT]
The main opposition United National Party (UNP) is to hold a special convention in Colombo to formulate a programme to launch a peoples' agitation campaign through out the Sri Lanka. "The leadership of the party has decided to launch this campaign against the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government as UPFA has failed to fulfill its promises and the expectation of the masses," Gayantha Karunatilake, UNP spokesman told media persons in Colombo.

The campaign will start on March 17, he said.

Nepotism, corruption and violence have been the order of the day in the island. Mandate given by the masses has been thrown into dustbin. Masses are undergoing untold hardship due to human rights violation and violence, Mr Karunatillake said.

People are unable to run their day-to-day life as the cost of living has escalated several folds due to faulty economic policies of the government, Karunatilake further said.

Hence, the UNP leadership has decided to summon a special convention of the party to take a firm decision in the interest of Sri Lanka and the masses, he added.
