Says Hambantota MP Sajith Premadasa will join Grama Charika programme

The United National Party (UNP) says that there are no rifts within the party and that Hambantota District MP Sajith Premadasa will join the Grama Charika programme.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake today has denied that there are any rifts within the party.

The UNP is currently conducting a programme, called Grama Charika to reach out to the grass roots level and to make the people aware of the party’s policies.

However, UNP MP Sajith Premadasa did not attend the first and second phases of the Grama Charika programme citing he was sidelined from the programme.

Premadasa instead launched two separate programmes, Grama Sanvardhana Charika and Sasunata Aruna, in the villages.

Attanayake has told the local media that Premadasa will participate in the third phase of the Grama Charika programme to be held in Kundasale in Kandy on 20 and 21 November. (www.colombopage.com)
