The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) said today it would consider accommodating the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) only if it left the UNP-led government.
Its chairman G.L. Peiris told Daily Mirror his party paid their cash deposits at the Kalutara District Secretariat to contest the election to the local authorities.
He said his party would pay the cash deposits to contest the elections to all local authorities.
Prof. Peiris said this amid reports about talks to unite the SLPP and the SLFP in view of the elections.
He said the main condition for uniting the two factions was that of the SLFP quitting the UNP- led government. (Kelum Bandara)

"It would consider accommodating the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP)" - Ha Ha. What presumptiousness. It should be the other way - SLFP accommidating you. Time he was put to fodder as use by date gone..

The Professor is not talking sense. Why should MS quit and join the bandwagon of criminals and robbers. The People of the Country does not want the JVP or the JO. They can only dream.

Great statement and SLPP can win without SLFP

What on earth is this foot-in-mouth professor talking about. He is probably going senile to even suggest that the Unity Government of MS and RW will break away so that MS's SLFP could join a road side show like the SLPP. What a joker he is.
