CWC withdraw from supporting the government


The Ceylon Workers’ Congress says they do not feel the need to hold office in the current government that has caused suffering among the people. The Party also said they decided to withdraw from supporting the government. Addressing a rally at the CWC Headquarters in Kotagala, celebrating May Day today, General Secretary of the CWC Parliamentarian Jeevan Thondaman said his party acted with utmost trust in the President and the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka. However he also questioned how they can support the government when that trust was completely shattered. The MP also noted that his request for a plot of land to build a University in Kotagala for estate workers, was completely ignored by the President.
