The Minister said that the 65th Anniversary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party would be the most successful to be held in the Party’s history. He said that he is aware that there is a group that is planning to sabotage the anniversary celebrations.
Minister Amaraweera questioned whether there was a democratic environment that prevailed in the country where party members were permitted to express their own views about the anniversary. He queried whether there was any SLFP Organizer queried from others whether they were willing to participate in the Anniversary or at the SLFP May Day commemoration or whether they were prepared to split the party. Such incidents did not take place in the past.
The Minister said that this democratic environment has been created in the party under the leadership of President Maithripala Sirisena.
