The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) had recruited more than two million members to the party, it said in a statement today.

“In a special two month membership drive, initiated under the patronage of former Parliamentarian Basil Rajapaksa, the SLPP had achieved the target. This is also shown by the record attendance at the May Day rally held at the Galle Face Green,” the statement said.

The SLPP’s membership drive titled "Samaajikathwaabhishekaya", under the theme ‘Build a village that protects the country’ was held islandwide followed by a series of conferences.

“Through seminars, we were able to set several new political trends. The SLPP is the only party in the country to carry out an active political campaign country wide,” it said.

“In each electorate people showed willingness to get membership. It is a victory to get this type of a massive response from the general public which helped to reach the target of two million members,” it said.

    Membership means nothing much. Ask JVP what's their membership strength. Still when it comes to voting time they always struggle. You will come behind the two main parties UNP/SLFP. However feel perform better than JVP for a while. It will be a different story if the allegations against the top team are proved true and found guilty.

    But Mahinda Rajapaksha is not still a member. The irony

    Short of 4.8 million to win election.

    nimal Monday, 04 September 2017 05:59 AM

    This biggest joke, Basil Rajapakse leading the pack. The biggest thief. Five million down to two now, "Pohottuwa" you are doing well.

    Park Monday, 04 September 2017 06:54 AM

    How much of the Rajapakse family stolen money was used to pay the membership fee for this 2 million members?

    Sambo Monday, 04 September 2017 08:21 AM

    You may have two million members, but what's the assurance you will receive two million votes. If you receive 250,000 it will be a great achievement. So don't count your chickens before they are hatched.

    INDUCEMENT FEE Monday, 04 September 2017 08:25 AM

    In this case was the membership fees paid in reverse and this "FEE" a very substantial amount ?:

    As per the propaganda campaign you are doing a good job as you did when MR lost the election. That is the reality you all do not like to face. After the election you have so many things to say after learning the third defeat. Please, be ready to issue notices to the public newspapers after the lost of the election. Your team cannot attract any single vote from the UNP whereas you are dividing your party into two to gave the comfortable victory for the UNP.

    dila Monday, 04 September 2017 02:33 PM

    I too joined the party..... but does not mean I will vote the party.
