Minister of Finance and Planning Mangala Samaraweera recently announced that the Black Friday coup on the 26th of October was launched to counter good governance government's "Gamperaliya" development program.
However, several activists of small parties have expressed their views on social media that Basil Rajapaksa's initiative to connect with rural masses has not been discussed with small parties.
They allege that Basil's intention is to dissipate minor parties.
Under the 'Gama Samaga Pilisandarak' program, the SLPP has taken a range of steps to hold discussions country wide at the Gram Niladari division level.
However, political parties of Wimal Weerawansa and Udaya Gammanpila have not been invited for the discussions.
