All 40 SLFP MPs in the Joint Opposition (JO) will participate in the Jana Satana
Paada Yathra which will kick off at George E.de Silva Gardens, Kandy on July 28
at 8.00am after religious observances at the Sri Dalada Maligawa, UPFA Ratnapura
District MP Ranjith de Zoysa told the Sunday Observer yesterday.
“The SLFP hierarchy doesn’t need to issue special guidelines to SLFP MPs in the
Joint Opposition (JO) not to attend the Paada Yathra in Kandy on July 28 as they
are aware that the SLFP has no connection whatsoever to that event, “SLFP
General Secretary and Agriculture Minister Duminda Dissanayake told the Sunday
Health and Indigenous Medicine Minister Rajitha Senaratne says that the
government is not perturbed by the much- hyped protest march of the Joint
Opposition(JO) which is trying to score brownie points over the VAT issue.
