Those who traditionally voted for the UNP should decide whether they are going to destroy the party or not at this election, UNP Leader and former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday.

Speaking during an election rally, Mr. Wickremesinghe said Tuesday's Appeal Court decision to reject the petition filed by Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) against the UNP decision to suspend those members who joined SJB to contest the general election, was an indication that those contesting under the elephant symbol were the real UNPers..

“The Appeal Court decision had made it clear that those who are contesting under the elephant are the real UNPers. It has also made it clear that the SJB is another party. Therefore those who have been traditionally voting for the UNP should decide whether they are going to vote for the elephant at this election and safeguard the elephant and the UNP or whether they are going to vote for another party and destroy it,” Mr. Wickremesinghe said.

“The UNP was founded by the late D. S. Senanayake who chose elephant as its symbol. He also founded the Gal Oya project. The UNP and Gal Oya go together. Therefore I appeal to everyone to vote for the elephant symbol,” he added.

Mr. Wickremesinghe said his party had joined the fray with a proper set of plans to steer the nation forward by defeating the crisis brought on by COVID-19.

“We have come up with a plan to change the vicious trade cycle where consumers have to pay a high price for the food crops while the farmers are exploited. We have come up with a plan to export food crops. There will be 500 million mouths to feed in the Asian region by 2050. We are going to make use of it. A UNP government will also focus on de-silting tanks and allocating funds to grow in small lands. We will give a monthly payment of Rs 10,000 to everyone who loses jobs due to the COVID-19 crisis. We will also get the apparel industrialists to produce face masks for school children,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

    Tony M Friday, 24 July 2020 01:17 PM

    R.W. must be held responsible for his selfish behaviour. He should have bowed out gracefully and saved this once great party.

    Sudath Friday, 24 July 2020 03:33 PM

    You have already done that for us. Thankyou

    Sim Friday, 24 July 2020 03:56 PM

    Since the time RW became the leader of UNP he lost many elections and members to the opposition. Better retire gracefully before you are kicked out

    Kathir Friday, 24 July 2020 04:59 PM

    You have already done some good good things and bad things.so it's time to retire from politic and do some social service.

    Like to do. How to do ?

    Kumu Friday, 24 July 2020 06:22 PM

    It is you who destroyed UNP. Traditional UNPers will teach you a lesson on Aug. 5th

    Buddhist Friday, 24 July 2020 09:22 PM

    As long as Ranil, the one who has deals with Rajapakses lead UNP, the party UNP has to be destroyed.

    Ramesh Kanth Friday, 24 July 2020 10:26 PM

    Look into the mirror, then you will know who was responsible for the disaster of UNP. You took this stand to see MR get into the power and save your self and your clan escape from the commissions.

    GHarry Friday, 24 July 2020 11:12 PM

    Where is UNP which is, we heard, announced DEAD already when JR Jayawardene was dead.

    UNPer Friday, 24 July 2020 11:13 PM

    So you think you can succeed with emotional blackmail after ruining our GOP by yourself?

    raj Saturday, 25 July 2020 12:17 AM

    did you want to destroy TNA by implanting Mr.Sumanthiran with the intention of destroying TNA?

    rss Saturday, 25 July 2020 12:19 AM

    did you offer opposition post to Mr.Sampanthan in order to make him to accept Mr.Sumanthiran into TNA and to go against Tamils?

    Peiris Saturday, 25 July 2020 12:19 AM

    You are shameless to ask for our votes after doing all the damage to our beloved party.
