UNP Leadership Council Chairman Karu Jayasuriya and UNP Chairman Kabir Hashim paid a courtesy call on the Mahanayaka Theras of the Malwatta and Asgiriya Chapters today and discussed the current economic, political, social and cultural situation in the country.

They first met the Malwatte Chapter Mahanayaka the Most Ven. Thibbotuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thera.

“UNP is a party which builds national unity. We are making arrangements to reform our party. We have set an example by appointing a Muslim leader like Kabir Hashim as UNP Chairman laid a foundation for national unity,” he said. “The government violated election laws in the past. We faced an election in such an environment. In spite of the fact that PAFFREL issued a report on these violations, no publicity was given through the media. Our complaints also fell on the deaf ears. Mahanayaka Theras gave us advise on party unity and we will expect the same in the future as well,” Mr. Jayasuriya said.

Speaking to the media he said, the Government was boasting about economic development but the people were suffering without three meals for the day and were compelled to pawn their jewellery to make ends meet.

“The culture and morals are at very low ebb. Crime is increasing. The gun culture has reared its ugly head. A UNP government will re-establish law and order. It is UNP leader D.S. Senanayaka who strived to build unity among all communities.  Before bringing a no-confidence motion against the government by the UNP, it is the people who showed their lack of confidence in government at the elections,” Mr. Jayasuriya said.

Mr. Hashim said the introduction of a price control on rice was to hoodwink the people.

“Rice is being sold at Rs.80.This mafia has been created by the merchants. As a result, the people and small businessmen are helpless.  The Government is attempting to introduce Casinos by an Act of Parliament. It is against the moral values of the country. The President has to visit religious places and open them alone. The people have no confidence in the ministers and the politicians. The UNP politicians do not refrain from attending Parliament sessions for important discussions,” he said.
