The national unity government formed by the United National Party (UNP) and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) may face lot of challenges that have to be overcome with diligence, President Maithripala Sirisena said today.

Speaking at a ceremony held to mark the 69th anniversary of the United National Party (UNP) at Sirikotha today, Mr. Sirisena said the cooperation that had emerged in the leadership level of the SLFP and the UNP should also go down to grass-root level of the respective parties in order to win the challenges before them for the sake of the country.

“Don’t think the enemies are weak as there are pro-Eelam forces on one hand while forces belonging to the last regime are also waiting to sabotage the destiny of the national government,” he said.

The President also said that he decided to come out of the previous government and become the common opposition candidate on November 21, 2014 only after meeting former President Chandrika Kumaratunga with the then opposition leader Ranil Wickremesinghe. “There was no agreement before that,” he said.

Further, President Sirisena said the fact that the UNP supported him to become the President is deeply rooted in his heart. (Yohan Perera)

    Mr. President: what you have caused you must either cure or endure.

    President is saying the truth fighting against LTTE diaspora and MR regime remnants at once is hard

    The people whom you call enemies are representatives of certain constituencies that have voted against the concept of so called national govt.

    UNP members must be having the last laugh. Finally they have successfully divided the SLFP. How sad.

    Thilak Sunday, 06 September 2015 03:42 PM

    It was not a wise move by the president to have addressed the UNP and called members of the last regime enemies.

    Wise or not thats the truth

    MR divided and ruined UNP and ruled the country with Crossovers from UNP. MS and Ranil with the consent from both parties formed a national government. MS has rose above party politics which should be appreciated as it is the need of the hour.

    To Hell with the so called "Parties". Focus on the development of the Country, together.

    Be all ears to what people say but trust no one but yourself.
