Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe says that a Government elected by the people will not be suppressed by unjustifiable demands of trade unions. Participating at a function in Badulla, the Prime Minister said that he is thankful to public servants for not joining the strike. The Prime Minister said that there are problems in the state and private sectors and that workers engage in various acts to win their demands. He said that the Government tries to solve these problems through discussions. However he said that trade unions cannot get together and overthrow a Government which was elected by the people. He said that the Government opposes such moves and would take strict actions against it. He said that it is only the present Government that can payback the debts of the Rajapakha Government. The Prime Minister said that if they want to come back, they have to wait for a peoples mandate at an opportune time. He said that if not they are going against the wishes of the people. He added that the party members in the Government or Private sectors should reject such actions. The Prime Minister expressed these views when he met the party members to discuss the Badulla District Development Programme.
