Former National Organizer of the SLFP and Leader of the SLPP Basil Rajapaksa stated that the Joint Opposition (JO) will win the local polls with ease.
He was addressing the convention of the Women’s wing of the Sri Lanka Progressive Peramuna (SLPP) in Negombo. He went on that the day JO takes to the streets, the fate of the government will be sealed. JO would ensure that the much-delayed local government polls would be held soon.
He said: "Some people have threatened to parade me on roads, but to them I say we will take to the streets and send this government home.”
