Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) as a key stakeholder of the government extends its maximum support for every conduct of goodwill of the government, said SLFP Chairman and former President MP Maithripala Sirisena, addressing the SLFP District Convention held at the Urban Council Cultural Hall in Vavuniya yesterday (19).
The former President emphasised that the SLFP, nevertheless, will not be hesitant to address the problems of the government openly.
Expressing his deep concern over the country’s current situation, Sirisena added that it is very regretful that people, especially those of agriculture, are suffering from great difficulties.
The former President reminded that in the past the Northern Province was known as the Sahal Neliya and that the people of the North are most affected by these problems.
An initiative has been launched to strengthen the SLFP aiming the upcoming elections, Sirisena went on, adding that the SLFP will be converted into a strong political force capable of finding solutions to all problems affecting the country and the people.
