A new alliance will be formed with the priority of the United National Party (UNP) and Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) members in two or three weeks, Tourism and Lands Minister Harin Fernando said.
Addressing a political event, he said President Ranil Wickremesinghe or himself did not want to split the SJB.
“When I first joined the government, I had the opportunity to bring many members from the SJB, but Mr. Wickremesinghe told me not to. However, when I recently met him in Hikkaduwa, I told him that it is time to give an opportunity to the members who want to crossover from the SJB,” he said.
We have a program to implement in the country until this December. We need your support to continue with the program, he said.
Minister Fernando requested that the people be a strength for the President until then. (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)
