British Asia News Network

Sri Lanka: Yesterday the Former Minister Basil Rajapaksa who formed the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) said that there was no agreement reached with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) to form a broad political alliance.

“There is no truth in it,” he said, in response to Minister S.B. Dissanayake who said that the two parties had agreed on a common front to contest the general elections under a different symbol.

Proposals for a symbol were given but could not be accepted. “Our lotus bud symbol of SLPP is the most appealing one,” he said.
