The SLFP ministerial committee appointed by President Maihtripala Sirisena to look into the future of the unity government has made strong recommendations to drastically bring down the Cost of Living and provide facilities to achieve accelerated development in agriculture, industrial and education sectors and create employment opportunities, committee chairman and Minister Sarath Amunugama said yesterday.

He said a fresh agreement based on the recommendations of the five member cabinet committee will be signed between the UNP and the SLFP after President Maithripala Sirisena returned on April 24.

Minister Amunugama told the Daily Mirror that President Sirisena would discuss the recommendation of the SLFP committee with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe before signing the agreement by the General Secretaries of the UNP and SLFP.

“I expect to hand over the committee report to President Sirisena soon after he returns from London on April 24," he added.

The new agreement is not an extension of the agreement signed between the two main parties after the August 2015 General election to form the ‘Yahapalana Government’, Minister Amunugama said.

“This is basically a strategic arrangement on how the unity government should run in the tenure running for about 18 months up to 2020. We have focused our attention to fulfill the pledges given to the people at the Presidential and general elections in 2015 and made amends to the weaknesses and failures of the ‘Yahapalana Government’ in the last three years,” the Minister stressed.

    Deal deal deal.... these are all deals for the benefit of Politicians and since this govt came to power they are totally engrossed in deal making and stabilizing politicians. Nothing for the citizens is being done, roads are getting inundated, construction work for a short length of road takes months perhaps even years.... these politicians are only interested in their benefit.

    Yeas of course. Everything was good during the Rajapakshas rule. All these deficiencies started after the 8th of January, 2015.

    Let’s hope for the best. Happy if something happens to the people and the country. For sue if something goes wrong the blame will land on the joint opposition.Joint Opposition will also play their game to topple the government. We can watch a game like test cricket match.

    No government or governance of the country since council elections! Ministers and MP's running around like chickens for their feed.These chickens are using Limousines, fuel and parliamentary time paid for by the overburdened taxpayer! The biggest chicken is having a holiday in the UK again at the tax payers expense.

    You'd better leave the power that has been grabbed forcibly sans any approval of the PUBLIC.
