CBK accuses SLFPers of betraying peoples’ demands
Published Date: 15/11/2018 (Thursday)

Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga said that she is watching with concern and regret the efforts by some Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members to betray the peoples’ demands for a better Sri Lanka which gained victory on January 8th, 2015.

Kumaratunga said that the SLFP, together with most other parties and civil society, built a massive unprecedented movement to win the struggle for a decent, honest and prosperous Sri Lanka.

“It is regretful that some sections of our beloved Party finds it fit to betray all our policies and once again join hands with a political group that destroyed fundamental rights, democracy, democratic institutions and built a destructive network of graft and corruption,” she said.

Kumaratunga said that the scenes being played out in the past few weeks within the sacred precincts of Parliament, in Government and outside are destroying the peoples’ confidence in democratic institutions so long treasured and safe-guarded by all Sri Lankans.

“The time has come, as never before, for all Sri Lankans who value freedom, democracy and those institutions that uphold them, such as Parliament, the Judiciary, an independent Police, Armed Services and Public Services, to stand up for freedom and good Governance in this Country, setting aside all personal political and pecuniary interests,” she added.

Kumaratunga said that the country has reached a dangerous precipice of chaos, anarchy and breakdown of the rule of Law and all peoples must unite to bring it back from the brink and recommence the journey towards enlightened Governance. (Colombo Gazette)
