Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa assures that the people’s struggle will not be betrayed in order to form an interim government.
MP Premadasa said the proposal of an interim government is a mere corrupt arrangement to rid oneself of theft, fraud, and corruption.
MP Premadasa said he will willingly resign as the Opposition Leader and uphold his policies than join such a fraudulent government.
Speaking at the 29th memorial of his father the late President Ranasinghe Premadasa today, MP Premadasa said he does not wish to obtain privileges at a time when the public is gravely affected due to government actions.
He added the government including the President and Prime Minister continues to hold on to power, unwilling to step down.
MP Premadasa said threats have been levelled that the failure to support an interim-government will lead to him losing the post of Opposition Leader.
MP Premadasa said he will willingly hand over the post as he will never force his hand at forming a government.
The Opposition Leader said they will engage in governance with people’s blessings and will respect the public decision.
