United National Party (UNP) MPs will hold a protest rally at the proposed site of the Crown Multi-Purpose Development Project at D. R. Wijewardene Mawatha in Colombo to show their opposition to the legislation, under which tax concessions are being granted to three major development projects.
The proposed legislation is to be taken up in Parliament tomorrow and the day after.
UNP MP Harsha De Silva told a news conference that MPs will gather at 10.00 a.m. tomorrow along D. R. Wijewardnene Mawatha for the protest rally.
He said the MPs would come prepared to meet any emergency situation and added that they would counter any government supporters who may carry so-called toy guns.
When asked whether the party will mobilise the people for such protests, Dr. De Silva said his party had no intention of exposing the masses to danger. (Yohan Perera and Sanath Desmond)
