The UNP said today that the government feared the tomorrow’s strike against the electricity tariffs hike and was using various tactics to force the workers to keep away from taking part in the campaign.

“The government is afraid of our strike campaign to be held tomorrow. It had even threatened Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) employees to abstain the strike,” UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said at an event held to strengthen its media campaign ‘Sannivedana Balakaya’.

He also said that school children have been asked to attend school tomorrow to observe sil.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said the government had tried to sabotage the protest march held on May 15 against the tariff hike, but failed.   (YP and LSP)

    We really want to know whether RW want to see this strike as a successful one. By this time he would have gone to temple trees to have a Black Coffee.

    proposed strike as a mere attempt to gain political mileage and a conspiracy to turn the public against a people-friendly government.

    Devaka Tuesday, 21 May 2013 04:26 AM
