UNP has neither agenda nor future - Weerawansa

National Freedom Front Leader and Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa yesterday said the UNP is in the process of devising various mechanisms to minimise their destined defeat at the forthcoming Uva, Jaffna and Vavuniya elections.

He said the UNP is totally stranded in the face of Government’s success in many fronts including the eradication of terrorism.

“The UNP has neither an agenda nor a future and supporters have started defying the party leaders” ‘ he said.

Addressing the media, Weerawansa said the UNP is planning to gain political mileage over the issue of Northern displaced civilians at the elections.

He said the UNP parliamentarians who seek Government’s permission to enter the welfare centres where displaced civilians are living had very close links with the terrorists.

These parliamentarians have reportedly dined with the LTTE leaders and given them accommodation when they came to Colombo.

The displaced people have a right to vote if they are registered voters of the area where the elections are held irrespective of their present condition, he said.

The UNP Government barred all Opposition parliamentarians from visiting the detention camps where thousands of youth were held during the 1988-89 insurgency after President Mahinda Rajapaksa as a Parliamentarian and human rights activist visited the Boosa detention camp.

The Government’s victory at the forthcoming Uva Provincial Council election is inevitable.

The people of all communities in the province will show the world that they are with the Government which established peace in the country.

These people know better than any other that international forces are still hovering around the country to meddle with the country’s internal affairs even after the terrorism was completely wiped out from the country.

He said JVP leader Somawansa Amarasinghe has also admitted that Government has fulfilled 50 percent of the challenge that lies ahead of the country, he said.
