SLFP General Secretary Dayasiri Jayaseka today vowed to make the grand old party of the down trodden and anti-capitalists the most powerful political force in the country within four months, with the aim of winning all three elections this year.
“The founding father of the SLFP, late Prime Minister S.W.R.D.Bandaranaike quit the UNP in July, 1953, to form the SLFP against extremist left and capitalist policies with socialist democratic policies or the middle path,” he said.
He made these remarks after assuming duties as the General Secretary of the SLFP at the party head office at Darley Road, Colombo.
He said in his work plan for the party in the next four months, the priority would be given to unite all those who distanced from the party. “Our motto for victory must be the unity among all patriotic, nationalist, socialist and anti UNP forces. We have no much difference in policies with the SLPP or any other party in the joint opposition.
Therefore, all these progressive forces with same line of thinking must be united and face the forthcoming Provincial, Presidential and Parliamentary polls as one common front against the UNP. I hope this will not be a difficult task if we all work to achieve this objective as one,” Mr. Jayasekara stressed. (Sandun A Jayasekera)
