Mass movement to safeguard democracy: Sajith

Sajith Premadasa UNP deputy leader

UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa yesterday said several political parties would join his party soon to form a mass movement to safeguard democracy soon.

Issuing a statement yesterday Mr. Premadasa said it is his belief that such a movement would be formed before the present situation where the people are organising themselves irrespective of the government’s attempts to curb their rights.

Mr. Premadasa also vehemently condemned the attack on the UNP protest by the police using tear gas to disperse crowds.

He said the right of the people guaranteed by the constitution to stage protests has been violated by the government by this act.
