Chairman of the United National Party (UNP) MP Vajira Abeywardena speaking to a briefing called in by the Party yesterday (04) said President Ranil Wickremesinghe needs each and everyone’s support to build the country.
“Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe has taken over the stewardship of the nation. So, he continues to ask for everyone’s support in this regard. To recover this country from where it fell, at least 175 MPs’ support is needed, he said over and over again. What is being done is uniting all compatible and incompatible political parties for a national programme. Such a programme cannot be implemented overnight,” he said.
