Addressing a public gathering held at Kundasale in Kandy, UNP General Secretary MP Tissa Attanayake said the upcoming Provincial Council election should be a challenge to the government.



However JVP General Secretary Tylvin Silva told an election rally held in Mawathagama yesterday that the UNP was not a political party of the rural masses.


Addressing another public gathering held in Kandy, Irrigation and Water Management Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva said that it was ironic to note that parties such as JVP which oppose the PCs contesting the same elections.
