Former Minister Wimal Weerawansa says that a motion of no confidence will be brought against Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe.
Addressing the public rally held in support of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa in Kurunegala yesterday (8), the National Freedom Front (NFF) leader charged that Sri Lanka has presently fallen victim to a western conspiracy.
Democratic Left Front (DLF) leader Vasudeva Nanayakkara, also speaking at the event, claimed that the incumbent government has cut down most of the concessions provided to the public under the former government.
The former Minister also said that there is a threat of the deposit interest ratio being cut down.
The Kurunegala rally was the 4th in a series of similar events organized by a section of coalition parties of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) seeking to bring back Rajapaksa back into politics and name him as the party’s Prime Ministerial candidate for the upcoming election.
