The SLFP, together with most other parties and the civil society, built a massive unprecedented movement to win the struggle for a decent, honest and prosperous Sri Lanka, she noted.
“It is regretful that some sections of our beloved Party find it fit to betray all our policies and once again join hands with a political group that destroyed fundamental rights, democracy, democratic institutions and built a destructive network of graft and corruption.”
She said that the scenes being played out in the past few weeks within the sacred precincts of the Parliament, in the Government and outside are destroying the people’s confidence in democratic institutions so long treasured and safe-guarded by all Sri Lankans.
The country has reached a dangerous precipice of chaos, anarchy and breakdown of the rule of law, she claimed. All people must unite to bring it back from the brink and recommence the journey towards enlightened governance, she added in her statement.
