The Jathika Jana Balawegaya (JJB) did not participate in yesterday (9), discussion with President Ranil Wickremesinghe, in protest against the Government’s repression, former MP Sunil Handunnetti said.

Holding a media briefing on 8 August, Handunnetti said that the party would meet the President to inform him of their stand on forming an All-party Government.

However, when Ceylon Today inquired yesterday (9), Handunnetti said that, instead of meeting the President, the party has decided to directly forward the proposals related to an All-party Government to the President.

“There is no sign of an end to the repression that is being carried out by the Government. Therefore, we decided to send a letter stating our stand on the current situation. It is the same thing even if we go and meet the President or forward a letter,” he said.

He added the contents of their letter will be released to the media soon.
