Those who attended the Kirillapona May day rally to be punished

The Central Committee of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party is to call a meeting this week to discuss action to be taken on SLFP members who did not participate in their May Day rally held in Galle, SLFP General Secretary and Agriculture Minister Duminda Dissanayake said.

Organising committee members will submit a full report at the meeting on participation and other contributions made by SLFP members.

The committee will decide on the course of action to be taken against those who boycotted the event based on the report, the minister said.

“We cannot take action about any other rally that was held that day, our goal was for all the members to work together to make the SLFP May Day rally a success.

We will have to decide on what action is to be taken against those who did not contribute based on the report submitted by the people,” Dissanayake said.

United People’s Freedom Alliance General Secretary and senior SLFP member Mahinda Amaraweera highlighted that neither the President nor any other single SLFP member would take any decision regarding the issue without a proper consultation process with the SLFP central committee.
