Political sources say that there is a possibility of a group of Muslim Congress, TNA and UNP councillors elected for the Eastern Provincial Council joining the Government.
Reports say that the UPFA was getting ready to obtain the support of this group of councillors if the support of the SLMC was not forthcoming to form a UPFA rule at the Eastern Provincial Council.
Reports say that a team of top level UPFA representatives has also by now held discussions with this group of councillors for this purpose.
Accordingly reports say that there is a possibility that two SLMC councillors, One TNA councillor and two UNP councillors join the Government party.
However in a discussion with our news team TNA MP M. A. Sumandiran said that by now threats were being levelled against his party councillors.
