Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe informed some members of the party on Saturday that the working committee of the United National Party ( UNP) and its headquarters Sirikotha will be re-organized.

Speaking at a meeting of UNP members in Kuliyapitiya, Mr. Wickremesinghe said some members should work full time to promote the party. “The party won’t last if every member of it gets involved with the government,” he said.

He said a new programme will be carried out to promote the party in the village level. He said the approval of the working committee will be sought for all the new moves.

“It is not possible for a single political party to take the country towards technological era and that’s why we decided to form a national government,” he said stressing the need for safeguarding it.

He therefore said President Sirisena will guide the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) towards achieving this common goal.
