SLPP main party in SLPP-SLFP alliance – Kariyawasam
BY FAADHILA THASSIM
Some members of the SLFP harbour the notion that the SLFP was the main party of the SLPP-SLFP alliance, SLPP General Secretary, Sagara Kariyawasam said. He said although the SLFP was the main party in previous alliances and was deemed powerful at that time that was not the case anymore.
The SLPP was the main party in the current alliance, he said. Kariyawasam said although experienced SLFP members understand that the SLPP was the main party in the alliance, certain others failed to understand that. He added that although other political parties of the alliance were not required to be submissive to the SLPP which is the main party, their opinions should be compatible to that of the SLPP in terms of appointments and other factors.
Kariyawasam speaking at a Media briefing yesterday (26) said although a few members of the SLFP were of the opinion that the SLPP Government has meted out step-motherly treatment to their party, the majority of the members were not of that view.
