United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe will address 161 pocket rallies simultaneously using digital technology on Sunday (28), UNP's Election Campaign Manager Sagala Ratnayake said today.

Mr. Ratnayake told journalists that Mr. Wickremesinghe will kick off UNP’s campaign for the general elections with a rally at party headquarters Sirikotha on Sunday.

“Our leader’s speech will be telecast in all 161 pocket rallies which will be held in all districts simultaneously,” he said.

“The UNP will carry out its campaign with a digital revolution as the first political party using social media for election campaign,” he added.

He said the party will use Zoom, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube for its election campaign and would abide with health regulations imposed by the election commission.

“We believe that we could reach people online at a time when even education for school children is conducted online by some schools. We have learnt that children from several houses get together in one house where a computer is available to participate in online classes. Therefore, we believe that technology had gone into a large number households,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

    We would like to know what our party has to offer the public now. Having failed miserably to bring to justice the rouges of the previous regime.

    Good and innovative idea. The issue is how deep can you get into rural society where there is no internet infrastructure.

    A Rally at Party HQ....how ingenious! And then go virtual. Helps in large measure to prevent embarrassment of no crowds. But remember: come D day 5th Aug, RW and clique will be exposed by the people.....then what? Will MR bail you out?

    Lol... I just can’t help laugh at the joke the UNP has become. For anyone to think that after 26 years of losing that RW can win an election is just mind boggling..
