Parliament should be dissolved: MR

The President should dissolve parliament with immediate effect and pave way for a general election if he is confident of winning the election, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa said.

He was addressing a gathering at the Tamil and Hindu New Year celebrations at Tangalle.

The Former President said that the Joint Opposition had a bright future, so they are confident of forming the next regime.

He said the government has halted development work that his regime inaugurated.

"We want a general election to save the country and its people. The UNP is undergoing a deep crises. The rulers are blowing trumpets, while the citizens live under dire circumstances. Meanwhile, the government plans to postpone the election," former President said.
