Set aside politics and unite in order to solve issues of the people, UNP Colombo district leader Ravi Karunanayake has stressed to all.
What should actually happen is not to introduce anti-corruption or any other acts, but proof by deed, he said, highlighting that any act would be meaningless without being practical.
Karunanayake was addressing as chief guest a beach cleaning effort at Crow Island in Mattakkuliya to mark international coastal cleanup day, organized by Lion’s Club International, Navy, police and schoolchildren.
Speaking further, he said foreign media channels need not explain anything to Sri Lanka, and that none of these issues would have arisen had the investigations so far into the Easter Sunday attacks been conducted properly.
Instead of leveling accusations against president Ranil Wickremesinghe, the opposition should extend him support for the sake of the country and the people, he said.
None of those accusers came forward to accept the responsibility for the country at the difficult moment, he said.
“Time has come to halt the politics of deception. There is talk only with no proof by deed anywhere.”
Around 200 out of the 225 MPs are with the president, and the opposition is left with about 25 MPs, Karunanayake claimed.
It is not the politicians, but the people who face problems, which needs action by all, including the media, for their resolution, he added.
