UNP ready to support Govt. for country’s benefit - Abeywardena

Former Minister Vajira Abeywardena yesterday said that the UNP is ready to extend its full support to the Governemnt, when it does right things for the well-being of the country and its citizens.

“We are ready to extend our support for the development of the country. But a proposal made in Parliament to declare the reclaimed land from the sea as a part of the Colombo administrative district shows that one country has two legal systems,” he said.

He was speaking at a press conference held at UNP headquarters – Sirikotha yesterday.

He said that the Government could have drafted the Port City Economic Commission Bill after obtaining opinions from political parties.

He said that the Bill could have been drafted in line with the country’s foreign policy and the geo-political situation.
