Geetha Kumarasinghe to participate in Joint Opposition May Day rally

Galle District MP and the SLFP organizer for Bentara-Elpitiya electorate Geetha Kumarasinghe today said that she will participate in the May Day rally organised by the Joint Opposition in Kirulapone.

Kumarasinghe said that threats of disciplinary action will not deter her from taking part in the joint opposition rally likely to be held under the leadership of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Kumarasinghe went on to say that she had reliable information that over 40 UPFA parliamentarians have already decided to participate the Kirulapone rally.
She also predicted that a large group of her supporters will attend the joint opposition May Day rally and added that already 20 buses have been obtained to transport them to Kirulapone.

However 7 out of 10 SLFP electoral organizers in the Galle district have announced that they will take part in the SLFP May Day rally held in Galle. They are Shan Wijeyalal, Chandima Weerakkody, Nishantha Mutuhettigama, Manusha Nanayakkara, Piyasena Gamage, Sajin Vass Gunewardene and Gunaratne Weerakoon.

Meanwhile Akmeemana SLFP electoral organizer Dr.Ramesh Pathirana and Ratgama organizer Mohan Silva are likely to join Kumarsinghe at the Kirulapone rally.
