Even if Budget is defeated, no need of govt. - SLPP

The SLPP is not ready to accept a government without a general election despite the government defeating the budget, said the SLPP chairman (Pohottuwa) Professor GL Peiris.

Speaking at a press conference held in Colombo yesterday, he made the comment. MP Bandula Gunawardena was also present at the event.

Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapakse had emphasized that all opposition parties will unite and defeat the budget and go for a general election. However, the second reading of the UNF's first budget was passed in parliament by a majority of 43 votes.
