The United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) led by President Maithripala Sirisena has appointed a committee to work out the steps to be taken to mitigate the current political and economic crises in Sri Lanka and submit a report in a week, a party official said yesterday.

The UPFA executive committee met on Thursday. Its main constituent party is the SLFP.

Mahajana Eksath Peramuna (MEP) leader and MP Dinesh Gunawardane, who attended the meeting, told Daily Mirror that the committee comprised representatives from the UPFA allies.

He said the alleged plot to assassinate President Sirisena and former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa was also discussed at the meeting.

“The committee will study how to conduct the elections to the provincial councils as early as possible along with other issues such as the economic crisis and the political crisis. It will report to the executive committee in a week,” the MP said.

Agriculture Minister Mahinda Amaraweera and Transport Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva represent the SLFP. The others are, Ceylon Workers’ Congress leader Arumugam Thondaman, National Congress leader A.L.M. Athaullah, former Ministers S.B. Dissanayake and Susil Premajayantha.

Representatives from the two smaller parties -- Desa Vimukthi Janatha Party and the Sri Lanka Mahajana Party are also in the committee. (Kelum Bandara)

    Too late in the day. Even if concrete actions are taken now it will be many years to show results

    There is no need for committees. The simple solution is to stop curruption and put the currupt to jail. Start with the bank robbers and the commission “Kakashi”. Just make things easy I may name a few, Mahendran, Malik, Ranil, Mahinda, Jonny etc. This is just the tip of the iceberg. You can join a meeting at the “Peoples Channel “ hosted by a Black Coat ( missing in action last week) and present your proposal.
