The United National Party says its leader Ranil Wickremesinghe took over the Premiership to help the people and save the country from the Rajapaksa rule.
Speaking during an event at UNP headquarters Sirikotha, party General Secretary Palitha Range Bandara said at a time when no one was willing to come forward and rebuild the failing economy, UNP leader Wickremesinghe took over the difficult task.
He said everyone must criticise the actions of the previous government adding however criticism alone will not resolve the country’s issue.
The UNP General Secretary said Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has taken over a massive task and therefore all factions should support him to steer the country in the correct path.
Palitha Range Bandara also noted that he is confident of Prime Minister Wickremesinghe succeeding in strengthening the economy, which will be a victory for all Sri Lankans.
