UNP asks SLMC to reveal deal with MR

The United National Party today released a statement urging the members of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress to reveal the details of the agreement they reached with Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa prior to the vote on the 20th Amendment.

“The SLMC opposed the government at the 2020 General-Election on the grounds that the policies of the government was detrimental to the wellbeing of the Muslims in Sri Lanka, however, behind closed doors these politicians have struck a deal with the government,” it stated.

“The SLMC chose to disregard the Democratic values which were upheld by the 19th Amendment by supporting the 20th Amendment,” it further stated.

It concluded that the interests of the Muslims in Sri Lanka are best served by the UNP which upholds the Sri Lankan identity, not by parties based on ethnicities-religions.
