He said this in response to a query made by the 'Sri Lanka Mirror' based on a statement made by Ravi Karunanayake that all former leaders of the UNP should be brought into the party again.
He said during that period, mission heads were appointed to keep around 12,000 polling stations active.
He further said;
Opposition against Ranil should be considered!
Meanwhile, Attanayake said the grassroots level resistance against the UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe should be reconsidered.
Attanayake said this addressing the media, subsequent to an inspection tour of the Kandy area after the recent clashes.
He noted that the UNP is fast becoming a party that is gradually distancing itself from the people.
Meanwhile, it is the desire of the party’s Deputy Leader Ravi Karunanayake, that Attanayake should rejoin the party.
