Opposition and UNP leader Ranil Wickremsighe today warned that the ‘People’s Power’ would have to be used if the central government ruled by the UPFA shackles the administration of the Colombo Municipal Council which his party had secured at the recently concluded local government election.

Mr. Wickremesighe who was engaged in religious observances with the Colombo Mayor A. J. M. Muzammil at the Devatagaha Mosque today said the UNP should be allowed to administrate the whole Council with full powers as it had received a people’s mandate to govern it.

It was reported earlier that several institutions that come under the CMC are to be put under the purview of the UDA which includes the Vihara Maha Devi Park.

Pointing out that the UNP was given the mandate to safe guard the low income dwellings and the three wheelers, Mr. Wickremesinghe said his party would carry out this task as per the people’s wishes.

“There are forces who support the demolishing of low income houses and abolishing the three wheelers in the city, but we will confront them,” he added. (Yohan Perera)
