The Leftist Movement accuses Mahinda Rajapakse of causing division amongst all political parties.

The Leftist Movement of the country points out that Mahinda Rajapakse was defeated by the citizens vote twice and will be defeated once again at the forthcoming Local Government Polls. Speaking at a media briefing held today, co-convener of the Leftist Movement Chameera Perera stated that in a desperate bid Mahinda Rajapakse has resorted to causing division amongst ALL political parties. He is even instrumental in destroying his own party. He also stated that the present freedom enjoyed by the citizens was never heard of during the previous administration. He added that the proposed railway strike that is to take effect from 12 midnight today is totally unacceptable. Chairman of the Workers Union Federation D.M.D.Abeyrathne stated that it is obvious that the proposed trade union action is not to win any labour rights at all.
