Opposing factions eye coalition to thwart NPP’s political ascent: AKD

April 29, Colombo (LNW): Opposing political factions may collaborate to obstruct the National Peoples Power (NPP) ascent to power, Party Leader MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake said, addressing a recent event in Stockholm, Sweden.

Dissanayaka highlighted ongoing instability in Sri Lanka, particularly citing unresolved questions surrounding the Easter Sunday carnage, which took away more than 270 lives in 2019.

He indicated that various rival factions, including figures like former Presidents Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga and Mahinda Rajapaksa, and current President Ranil Wickremesinghe, are contemplating uniting to counter the NPP’s influence in the upcoming presidential election.

However, he noted potential hurdles stemming from personal conflicts between Wickremesinghe and Sajith Premadasa, the current Leader of the Opposition, despite shared policy objectives in this coalition.

Dissanayaka suggested that their aim is to impede the NPP’s progress and prevent its ascension to power.

Regarding the timing of the Presidential Election, the NPP Leader hinted at potential dates, suggesting either September 28 or October 5, 2024.

Dissanayaka called on supporters to engage actively, encouraging them to visit Sri Lanka during this period, advocate for NPP perspectives on social media, and discuss the importance of national development with their relatives.

Furthermore, Dissanayaka raised questions about the Easter Sunday attacks, particularly concerning possible collaboration between the perpetrators and those responsible for preventing such incidents.

He highlighted specific incidents, such as the case of Jameel, who failed to detonate a bomb at the Taj Hotel and later attempted to do so in Dehiwala, only to be intercepted by intelligence officials.

Dissanayaka also questioned the role of individuals like ‘Podi Zahran‘ and the circumstances surrounding the alleged death or disappearance of Sarah Jasmine, emphasising the need for clarity on these matters to address ongoing instability in the country.
