People of Kandy are joining the general wave of support to the government as they want a change in the administration of the Kandy Municipal Council, which has been traditionally held by the UNP for almost six decades, Opposition Leader of the Council Sena Dissanayke said Thursday (23) at the monthly meeting of the council.
In his summing up speech Dissanayake said during his house to house campaign he has been told the rate payers wanted a change of administration as they wanted their city developed. In all the wards of the town where he visited almost all ratepayers expressed the same opinion.
He said in 2002, when Ranil Wickremesinghe`s government came to power, the opposition in the council, the PA, was reduced to five seats with the swing towards the newly elected government.
Now again it was the same trend among the people of Kandy who want their town to be with the government of Mahinda Rajapakse.
