UNP will protect a united Sri Lanka – Minister

The United National Party has always stood for a united Sri Lanka and never wanted it to be divided, Plantation Industries Minister Lakshman Kiriella said while presenting the party’s manifesto to leading Buddhist monk Tibbatuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Mananayake.

The minister was responding to the monk’s comments that the opposition was accusing the current government of “promoting separate administration to satisfy the minorities”, The Island reported.

Mr Kiriella said that the UNP and the UNP-led United National Front (UNF) had assured communal harmony in a united Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
