Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe today requested all Sri Lankans to come forward and help the victims of the Haldummulla landslide tragedy in which many people were killed.

 

Expressing his sorrow over the Haldummulla tragedy in a media statement he said that all should come together without any ethnic, religious or political barriers to do the best to our brothers and sisters in need.

 

“It is a responsibility of everyone to provide assistance to our own people who are in a helpless situation,” he said in a special statement.

 

He said that he had raised the issue in the Parliament this morning and inquired about the incident in Meeriyabedda, Haldummulla.

 

The Parliament had not been officially informed about the tragedy when the statement was issued, he said.

    At least Ranil understand the power of unity at last. Playing politics is something else. In national matters and tragedies we have to get together to defeat the common enemy.

    I like your appeal Mr Wickremasinghe. This is what we need. However, are you at the site now helping the victims? In Australia, when politicians make such an appeal, they will be the first to be at the site helping victims. Are you all politicians waiting until the official announcement released? By then, people are dead and buried.

    It is vital to see senior politicians like Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe making important statements on putting aside race and religious differences, and helping each other in disaster situations. Bring this beautiful country together.
