One Million Participants At Jana Satana Protest Rally

UPFA MP Dallas Alahapperuma said that the 'Joint Opposition' wants to see one million people on the streets of Colombo on August 1, taking part in the 'Jana Satana Pada Yatra' rally.

Speaking at an awareness meeting in Polonnaruwa yesterday, he said that the government has a two thirds majority in Parliament, which makes it difficult for the opposition to oppose it inside the Parliament.

Therefore, the struggle against the government must come out of the confines of the Parliament on to the streets, he added.

The Pada Yatra or the protest march will begin on July 28 in Kandy and arrive in Colombo on August 1, culminating with a rally.
