SLFP state minister A. H. M. Fowzie who is in the “no-camp” opposing any moves to topple the government, told reporters that “they”, meaning the rebels within Sirisena faction, will abstain from voting allowing the premier to win by a big margin.

As a result, many South and East Asian countries such as India, Myanmar, Thailand, and, of course, Sri Lanka, began to use dried, old palmyrah leaves to make palm leaf manuscripts for the purpose of writing.
