SLFP MP Mahindananda Aluthgamage, who was sacked from his post of party organiser for Nawalapitiya, said today they would set up a broad alliance against the government and pointed out that even the JVP could join them.
He said they would focus on defeating the yahapalanaya government by contesting the upcoming local government elections from this alliance.
“We have still not decided about the name and the symbol of the new alliance but we will definitively form one. We will contest the upcoming elections from this alliance which will be backed by the joint opposition. We invite all parties and groups including the JVP to join us and defeat this government,” he told Daily Mirror.
The MP said seven SLFP organisers, who were senior politicians with a large voter base, were removed by the party leadership for not joining the UNP-SLFP ‘yahapalana’ government and highlighted the fact that the SLFP was not given a mandate to form a government with the UNP.
“We are the ones who follow the real SLFP policies and values today. I have been replaced with a former UNP activist for Nawalapitiya. The SLFP has no future anymore,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

Hay we got to know that you paid (Rs. 3,000/-) per head in Nawalapitiya with a bottle of Gal Arrack to join with you to combat Yahapalanaya govt. and to get more JVP boys, correct. No one is prepared to join with you putha.

Yes, we know pretty well without JVP, you will never come to power again, but - with conditions, you guys will have to adhere all the commands what our Leader Anura says, and he will be the leader of the party and you all should be like puppies only. Agree ?

Almost all the politicians are corrupt or known to abuse power. So nothing wrong in his call to form a new alliance.

This new alliance must put in writing that they would not tolerate communalism under any circumstance.

බලයට,මුදලට,පම්පෝරි ජීවිතයකට සහ නොමිලයේ ලැබෙන දේවලට ඇති කෑදර කම නිසා වරෙක ජනාධිපති තනතුරක් හොබවන ලද රාජපක්ස කෙනෙකු ප්රතිපත්තියක් නැති මෙවන් හිගාකන පහත් තත්වයට පත්වීම හරි පුදුමයි. JVP ය මීට වඩා ප්රතිපත්ති ගරුකයි,නම්බුකාරයි චරිතවත් සාමාජිකයින්ගෙන් සමන්විතයි. එමනිසා ඔවුන් කිසිදා මෙවන් දුෂිතයන් පිරිසක් සමග එක්වන්නේ නැහැ.

UNP / SLFP !! There is no difference anymore as regards to hollow promises and rampant corruption. Just that the UNP/ Yahapalana chaps are incapable unsuccessful administrators and the last regime are dangerous vicious thugs.

These bunch of robbers it seems have become desperate. They know that at ground level the JVP are very good organizers unlike Wimal Weere and the other "Three Wheel" parties with whom they have surrounded themselves. The JVP I very much doubt will stoop down to their level.
