  • Agreed to respond jointly and place people’s interests above party interests

By Kelum Bandara 

After talks with the government leaders, former UNP MP Ravi Karunanayake said yesterday that his party reached an understanding with the government to consider the COVID-19 crisis as a national calamity and respond to it jointly.  

A UNP delegation called on President Gotabaya Rajapaksa yesterday. Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, former Minister Basil Rajapaksa and six Cabinet ministers were also present.   


Mr. Karunanayake told Daily Mirror that the meeting had yielded positive result.

   
“Both sides see this as a national calamity. We will respond to it jointly. We agreed to place people’s interests above party interests,” he said. He said the UNP brought to the notice of the President about the politicization of food distribution in certain instances and the need to address the concerns of the daily wage earners and estate workers during curfew.  “We also extended our thanks to the military, the police and the health sector workers for their dedicated services at this time of disaster,” he said.
