UNP climbs Kitul tree to gather fodder, not to drink toddy


The UNP is engaged in a shameful exercise to increase the number of cabinet ministers on the pretext of forming a ‘national government’ says the Information Secretary of the JVP Vijitha Herath.

Speaking at a press conference being held at the head office of the JVP at Pelawatta today (1st) Mr Herath said the UNP is attempting to wriggle through a loophole in the Constitution by uniting with SLMC which has only one MP in Parliament to form a ‘national government’ so that the number of ministers in the cabinet could be increased.

Mr Herath pointed out the whole exercise is not to serve the country and the people but to gain more power to carry out their agenda unhindered.
