Whilst stating that people in this country need a change as Sri Lanka has been included among the top 15 nations with the highest food inflation rate, the UNP seniors today told the people to get ready for a change.

UNP seniors led by Deputy Leader Ruwan Wijewardene came up with this remark at a mass protest which was organised by the party's District Leader and Chairman Vajira Abeywardene in Galle last afternoon.

"People are striving for a change today and UNP is ready to bring about a change. Gather around us to bring that change," Mr. Wijewardene said.

"Sri Lanka has been identified as a nation among the 15 countries where the food inflation is highest and has fallen into the category of countries such as Zimbabwe. Many are planning to migrate from this country, " Mr. Wijewardene said.

Mr. Abeywardene said people should prepare themselves for an early election.

"A general election may be held as soon as legal barriers for it ends. Therefore get ready for it," he said.

"We did not come here to criticise anyone. We need the support of those who voted SLPP at the last elections. We need others including those who have broken away from us," he added.

UNP General Secretary Palitha Range Bandara said those who support his party had gathered in Galle to take the first step towards bringing the party to power once again. (Yohan Perera in Galle)

    UNP day dreaming

    All the parties pandered to majoritarian base instincts to get votes and have made us the number one beggar in Asia. May be it is a religious thing. Like Our Monks are supposed to receive alms for food, our country also expects money from other countries

    It is time that all law-abiding Sri Lankans get together and chase these corrupt politicians. All ethnic groups, religions should join hands. Sri Lanka belongs to all Sri Lankans. Keep religion away from politics. No religion should get priority over the other.

    Yes we need a change and not towards green for sure.

    Mr Wijeywardena would do well to come out and speak out far FAR more frequently and strongly! Otherwise he would be considered a possible 'whimp' !! MM
