UNP challenges JO to topple Govt.

4 September 2018 03:31 pm - 4     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


While saying that the Government was neither scared nor interested in the JO protest scheduled to be held tomorrow, Law & Order Deputy Minister Nalin Bandara challenged JO members to topple the Government.

Addressing a news briefing, he said that the JO members had emphasized on several occasions that they would topple the Government by means of this protest campaign.

“They boast saying that a large crowd will accompany them in the endeavour to topple the Government. People are not that much stupid to join hands with them,” the Deputy Minister said.

“This is not the first time that these JO members are marching to Colombo. There have been protest marches prior to this one and none of them produced good results. Likewise, this also would become a dead duck,” he added.     

  He said that although there was an allegation that the Government attempted to sabotage the protest, it had no such intention.  (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Mr. Minister, instead of challenging JO, why dont you push the govt. to have the PC elections which is already delayed, soon?

    The people will no longer be fooled by the JO or you and your party. We have had enough of you jokers who us for a joke. We will not vote for either of you. You are destined to the bin!
