National Freedom Front (NFF) leader and former Minister Wimal Weeranwansa said yesterday his party would not join the new government but would support its 100-day programme.


“We cannot join President Miathripala Sirisena because we cannot agree with his policies. That is why we supported former president Mahinda Rajapaksa. We are not prepared to betray 5.7 million people who voted for Mr. Rajapaksa. But we will support the100-day programme which includes constitutional and electroal reformsand thereduction in cost of living and fuel prices,” he said.


Mr. Weerawansa said he would not approve of some SLFP members who betrayed the 5.7 million by joining the government.


“There is a clear difference between thepolicies of Maithripala Sirisena and Mahinda Rajapaksa. That’s why 5.7 million people voted for us. If policies were the same those people also would have voted for Maitripala. We cannot approve of betraying our party supporters by joining the government,” Mr. Weerawansa said.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    This is an ingrained habit of UNPers ,they have history of annoying others for no reason . So we cannot wait to see that weerawansa is locked up and charge for the corruption that he has committed , if they failed to do that ,this government must resign immediately. Because these people threw away Rajspaksa for the corruptions .
