Harin To Start Discussions With JVP To Secure Power At Uva PC

Uva Province Chief Ministerial Candidate for the United National Party (UNP) Harin Fernando said that he is ready work in collaboration with Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) to defeat the government at the Uva Provincial Council election.

In an interview with BBC Sandeshaya the Chief Ministerial Candidate said that he is even ready to relinquish the post of Chief Minister to work in unison with other opposition parties.

Harin Fernando said that the Uva Province Chief Ministerial Candidate for the United People’s Freedom Alliance {UPFA) Shashindra Rajapaksa has failed to serve the needs of the people of Uva and has failed to ‘get the small things right’.

“What Shashindra should have done was to start with the small things, say, for instance, a glass of milk for the children - something that would actually benefit the people”, Fernando said.

Harin Fernando also pointed out that the ruling party has failed to recognize the value of the Uva Province to help the country’s tourism sector.

Fernando said even though there are a few policy differences between the UNP and the JVP, both parties are working towards a common goal and a team from UNP is already preparing for discussions with the top brass of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna.  

“It is true that Shashindra has immense support from the government and enough influence; but what he lacks is the practical knowledge”, he said.
