Prepared for any challenge - Basil

Former minister and national organiser of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) - Basil Rajapaksa says that they are prepared to face any challenge.
Speaking at a rally in Dehiwala  last day (02) he said that the SLPP has become the only anti-government political force and that they would contest from every district at the upcoming Local Government polls.

However, Basil Rajapaksa faces a dissent from certain sections of the Joint Opposition itself. Several members from the National Freedom Front (NFF) led by Wimal Weerawansa have openly protested against him.

Several NFF members have also informed former President Mahinda Rajapaksa that they would take a firm stance in the next few days if the requests made by their party were disregarded.

The disagreement between the NFF and Basil Rajapaksa had sprouted over the issue of selecting candidates for the upcoming LG polls.

Although the NFF has requested Basil Rajapaksa to allocate 10% of the nominations for his party., the latter had disapproved.
