UNP calls for common opposition

The UNP said today that the country needs a united opposition to take on “this corrupt and dictatorial regime”. Speaking at the Opposition leaders’ office UNP General Secretary Tissa Aththanayake urged former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka to join the UNP in its fight against the government. “We invite Sarath Fonseka to join us to take on this corrupt and dictatorial regime” he said.

The Kandy District Parliamentarian said that a divided opposition would not help the common cause of the opposition and that common ground should be derived from the need to bring down the government and not a shift in policy by any party.

“ We want all opposition parties to join us because taking on this government separately is not feasible, we urge all those opposing this corrupt and dictatorial regime to join hands with the UNP in the common bid of toppling this government” he said.

Atthanayake said that there is evidence that those responsible for the shooting in Katuwana Hambanthota have state protection. “We have received information to say that those accused of this heinous crime have clear state protection, if not how else have they been operating for this long in the open at the city of Hambanthota ?” he asked.

He stated that incidents of this nature have been continuously taking place in the past and that there is a dire need of a united opposition to form against this dictatorial and anti democratic behavior of the government. “ This isn’t the first time this has happened, the example of the abducted provincial councilor claiming that he was released because of the intervention of the highest levels in the defense establishment is clear indication of this state protection  for the underworld. It is against this that we have to rise” he said.

    If the majority want then the way is to get together as Tissa says. Stop bickering and get on with it.

    There is a chance that a joint opposition could break this government but there is absolutely no chance of creating a new government and maintaining it. There will be political turmoli, Ranil, Sajith, SF will all say they are the leaders. Then JVP will say they are the key factor. Muslim congress and TNA will demand various things. With the lack of focus on security couple of LTTE bombs will go off. Tourism will crash. All chaos!! What ever little development that happens will stop. And the masses will suffer. Until UNP as a single party does not become forward strongly people should not vote to a joint opposition.

    Better call for outside help because you guys definitely cannot handle the job yourselves.

    Can All UNP'ers unite first and invite others to join hands ?

    Al Rasa Tuesday, 19 June 2012 08:06 AM

    Why UNP was a single party which did not have much coalition
    and ruled this country .Joint opposition means it is KEDHHELIYA. (pot of porridge). In the context of present challenges there should be only one leader like MR.

    Put the UNP house in order first. Then you don't have to invite anybody. A strong united UNP can topple this corrupt govt within a couple of months.
