JO MP Rohitha Abeygunawardana said that the two MPs who shifted to the SLFP from Joint opposition now described as heroes.
“The cross over of an MP no longer creates a trend. It won’t affect the people’s opinion anymore. It is only a change in the head count and not the voter base. There are several MPs to come and join us too,” he said.
He said they have loosened the roots of the ‘yahapalanaya’ tree and that it was only a matter of time till it collapsed.
