Location Of Joint Opposition's Colombo Rally

The 'Joint Opposition' last night refused to reveal the location of the rally that will be held on August 1 in Colombo.

UPFA MP Namal Rajapaksa told media that the JO had reserved the Hyde Park two weeks prior to the rally. However, the government suddenly remembered there were repairs to be done, he said.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa's government had already done the reconstruction work at Hyde Park, Namal Rajapaksa said, raising the question whether the pits in Hyde Park are merely 'Yahapalana pits.'

The Joint Opposition will not reveal the location of the rally, as repair work in so many other grounds might also be started, Rajapaksa said.
