Thu, Nov 8, 2012, 08:11 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 08, Colombo: Sri Lanka's major opposition United National Party (UNP) announced that the party would vote against the budget.

UNP MP John Amaratunga said that the party parliamentary group came to this decision as they met under the patronage of the party leader Ranil Wickremasinghe in the parliament immediately after the budget proposals were tabled in parliament.

Amaratunga told media that the government had not granted any relief to people through its budget proposals.

He added that they would agitate against the budget away from the parliament as well.

Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayaka also expressed views regarding the budget proposals and said that no relief is granted to any of the oppressed social sectors.

However, the coalition National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and the JVP are yet to decide on the stance regarding budget.
