Video: Extend the term of local govt. bodies or go for a poll: Dullas

9 May 2015 10:27 am - 10     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Government should announce an election if it was not going to extend the term of local government bodies without transferring their powers to a special commissioner or a Secretary, UPFA MP Dullas Alahapperuma said.

Mr. Allahapperuma speaking at a media briefing this morning said transferring the powers of the local government bodies to such a Commissioner would be fulfilling the UNP’s agenda.

He said the UNP is aiming to deteriorate UPFA’s power in local government bodies before holding a general election.

Mr. Allahapperuma alleged that the UNP was attempting to go for a general election by taking over the power of local government bodies.

He requested the UPFA MPs who had obtained ministerial positions in the government not to allow such a move.

Mr. Allahapperuma said it was not surprising for the UNP to attempt to break the unity of the SLFP and said they were doubtful whether the SLFPers who joined the UNP government were also attempting to do so.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    The SLFP MPs must realise that they are marked men. They should realise that Rajapakse is actually a hate filled man bent on revenge. He will not forget that they joined the UNP Government. If he gets power they will be all treated the way he treated Sarath Fonseka. Dulles talking about “our friends” is only to tempt them to get their help.

    Dulles as the name implies, is not John Foster but still a USA citizen. He ran away and came back to join Ali Baba and the thieves. So now he has to shout something to keep MR camp flag flying.

    I doubt somebody will hear his request or is he trying to blackmail.The people who joined the government are enjoying and do you think they want to loose all that.
