Arulsamy new MP

Leader of the Workers’ Liberation Front (WLF) S. Arulsamy who took oaths last Thursday as MP to fill the slot created by the demise of Upcountry People’s Front (UPF) leader Periyasamy Chandrasekaran told the Sunday Observer that he has written to President Mahinda Rajapaksa, SLFP General Secretary, Minister Maitripala Sirisena, UPFA General Secretary, Minister Susil Premajayanth, Senior Presidential Advisor Basil Rajapaksa MP and other party frontliners expressing his desire to join the ruling UPFA.

He contested the 2005 General Elections as UPFA candidate but later quit the party and formed his own party, the WLF. Under the Elections Rules, he was appointed MP as he had polled the highest number of votes next to P. Chandrasekaran.

Arulsamy said that his was the first among the political parties of the plantation community to support the UPFA Government prompted by conviction of President Rajapaksa’s sincere commitment towards the socio-economic uplift of the impoverished plantation community.

The President, during the last four years, implemented many short-term and long-term development programs, unprecedented in the history, for the community with pledges of more such programs as has been incorporated in the extended ‘Mahinda Chintana’ version, he said.
