Chief Minister of the Central Province Sarath Ekanayake has asserted that no one will be able to splinter or divide the SLFP. All SLFPers will firmly stand behind the party leadership during the May Day Rally to be held in Galle.
Addressing a media briefing at the premises of the Central Provincial Council, he stated that the SLFP May Day Rally in Galle will give due recognition to the country’s working class. President Maithripala Sirisena has given due recognition to the working class by appointing a working class leader in the calibre of Leslie Devendra as the chairman of the SLFP May Day Rally organising committee.
He added that the SLFP would march forward under the leadership of President Sirisena by weathering all storms. He had steered the SLFP towards victory as the Party General Secretary for 17 years and has the ability to ensure the party’s victory in future too.
