Rulers spreading hatred instead of harmony between races - UNP

April 30, 2012   05:14 pm

The United National Party (UNP) says it will utilize this May Day as an opportunity to extend the hand of friendship to the people in the North, who have been badly affected by the decades-long war, and as a symbol of solidifying unity between all races.

The UNP is the only political party in Sri Lanka which represents all communities and provides an equal opportunity to all communities, Ranil Wickaramasinghe says in his May Day message.

We decided to celebrate May Day in Jaffna this year in order to further consolidate D.S. Senanayake’s objective of bringing prosperity to the country by safeguarding the unity and harmony between all races, the UNP Leader said.

While stating that May Day celebrations of traditional major political parties were restricted to Colombo, Wickramasinghe says the UNP commenced a new tradition of organizing May Day rallies out of Colombo, so people in rural areas and away from the city could attend May Day celebrations.

The Opposition leader further accuses that instead of strengthening harmony between races, the rulers of the country are spreading hatred to protect their political authorities. (AdaDerana)
