Step-motherly treatment for SLFP in govt. Featured

The SLFP organizers receive no funding when the state is allocating money for development purposes at electoral level, a senior spokesman for the party has told ‘Mawbima.

’They are going to complaint to president Maithripala Sirisena over the matter.

Every electorate has a coordinating committee, headed by two representatives of the UNP and the SLFP.

These heads of committees have serious clashes over the allocation of funding.

According to the SLFP spokesman, the UNP has taken a politically-motivated decision not to grant any allocations to their party.

Even at the cabinet, ministers of the two parties have clashed over this matter.

Also, the SLFP will not receive any funding from ‘Gam Peraliya’ programme that is to be implemented shortly, he said.

Furthermore, the UNP have grabbed all funding for rural road development.
