May 13, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) plans to organize religious events seeking divine intervention to save the country from the current government.

The party will hold religious events at Vishnu devalas - places of worship for Hindu god Vishnu- in the country to plead before God Vishnu to intervene and address the issues faced by the country and people due to the actions of the government.

UNP National Organizer, Daya Gamage has said that these religious events would be organized in 1,000 Vishnu devalas around the country in 60 days.

The party, which has not been able to secure an election victory at any level since 2001, plans to begin the programme on June 9th at the Devinuwara devala in Matara.

The programme will conclude with a ceremony at the Vishnu temple in Point Pedro in the North.
