Confidant of winning 250 LG bodies: SLPP

The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) said today it was confident of winning 225 to 250 Local Government (LG) bodies out of 341.

SLPP national organiser Basil Rajapaksa said the people who are disgruntled with the United National Party (UNP) should vote for the SLPP instead of any of the other parties.

“It is the SLPP and Mahinda Rajapaksa who are upholding Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) principles. We will continue to preserve them,” he said.

Responding to UNP and SLFP threats that the government will withhold funds to LG bodies which were won by the SLPP, Mr. Rajapaksa said they could administer the LG bodies with their own revenue.

He said the government was attempting to handover the management of cemeteries and other entities which were under LG bodies, to private institutions.

“The UNP is asking to vote for them so that they could run the LG bodies the way they are running the government. Perhaps, they intend to rob banks at village level similar to the way they robbed the Central Bank,” Mr. Rajapaksa said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    To be honest I don't want anyone to win this election. All should learn a lesson.

    Should not refrain from voting. Should vote for some new party or independent candidate. Otherwise, these crooks will come to power by the votes of few foolish people's who vote for them.

    Well you are very confident that people can be cheated very easily.

    Mohan Tuesday, 06 February 2018 10:27 PM

    Well. That's true. In Sri Lanka the malnourished masses are not intelligent enough to understand the true nature of this kind of crooks.

    If the SLPP wins, it only shows how low we in SL have sunk that we hero worship crooks. Even as it is, see how brazenly they pose off as saints like Basil.
