He added that JO’s May Day rally at Galle Face reveals the pulse of the people and gives a clear signal to the country and the world as to which way the wind was blowing.
He was addressing a press briefing at the Dr.N.M.Perera Centre. He stated that the new party would go ahead with planned project. The massive public participation at the JO May Day rally reflected the growing resentment towards the Sirisena-Wickremesinghe government with the former blindly following UNP policies severely inimical to the country.
