UNP deputy leader Sajith Premadasa said today that he and the party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe were of the same mindset and was working towards achieving victory at the forthcoming elections.
“As an active member of the party I have been involved in the nomination process at election time. The UNP has always worked together and its members are united in achieving victory. There is no question about that,” he told a news conference.

Mr. Premadasa said he would be glad if former Army Commander SarathFonseka joined the UNP and he would give his fullest support to Mr. Fonseka.
“Personally I will be overjoyed if Mr.Fonseka joined the UNP. He will have my blessings and fullest support. There is no doubt that he will join hands with us and there is no need for any conditions when he joins us,” he said.

Mr. Premadasa said the Civil Defense Forces were facing severe hardshipsbecause ofthe lack of proper facilities.
“The officers were not employed on a permanent basis and they are being paid a small daily allowance. The Civil Defense Forces protected the border villages enabling the Army to fight the LTTE on the front lines. For people who have served this country in such a way, it is sad to see them working in farms and factories on asmall daily allowance. I am asking the government whether this is how it treats soldiers who helped to attain victory at the war,” he said.

Mr. Premadasa said the party would contest elections while protecting the individuality of the party. They would not join hands with other parties but would nominate candidates from various ethnic and religious backgrounds. (Nabeela Hussain and Nishan Casseem)

    SAJITH, CAN YOU CHALLENGE YOUR COMMENTS BY KEEPING A PRESS MEET AT UNP HEAD OFFICE?

    Ranjith Wednesday, 18 July 2012 10:07 AM

    Update your group and the private TV network which promotes you. They are the enemies of the party and the leader

    peeda mossa Wednesday, 18 July 2012 10:08 AM

    United ? With or without you ?

    nandos Wednesday, 18 July 2012 04:19 PM

    Yeah, but he is united with the jarapakses.

    Godagampala Rohana Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:14 PM

    Very bad statement from a very good man.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:18 PM

    If you join with Ranil, then its the end of UNP. You must stand allalone to win battles Sajith. Oh... what a childish talk putha.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:20 PM

    For us, you are the Leader of UNP, Who is Ranil? He is good to play

    Amarathunga Chandika Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:27 PM

    We trust you only, RW should get out and retire from politics for the betterment of UNP..

    Jayantha Jayamanne Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:30 PM

    Ranil is a puppet & his golayas are muppets - only you Sir, our Leader.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:33 PM

    Don't talk about the unity in the Party, never with the Old Senior Blocks including RW. You try to run the race with the young flocks.

    kiribath Wednesday, 18 July 2012 06:04 PM

    your day will come after 2016,

    Amal Wednesday, 18 July 2012 10:53 AM

    UNP Economist Wednesday, 18 July 2012 11:21 AM

    Indeed Its a bad news for Government. Good work. Don't care about anti comments. Our men are always like this.

    citizen junior Wednesday, 18 July 2012 11:21 AM
