JO issues early apology over inconveniences

The Joint Opposition group has issued an apology to the public in advance, owing to the possible inconvenience as a result of the ‘Jana Balaya Kolambata’ protest organised in Colombo tomorrow.

Speaking at a media breifing this morning Parliamentarian Dullas Alahapperuma said the group is standing in solidarity with the people against the actions of the government.

The Parliamentarian noted the protest will be a human force, a force against taxes, a force against the erosion of culture and a force against the delay in conducting elections.

While claiming the protest will not only be of the Joint Opposition MP Alapperuma said the protest is for the hundreds of people who seek a peaceful country and a healthy economy.

He stressed MP Johnston Fernando who has been a part of the struggle was imprisoned adding such incidents may continue within the next 24 hours.

Parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila also requested those engaging in the protest to refrain from joining in any altercations.

The Parliamentarian meanwhile requested the public to provide evidence if such incidents occur.
