Dec 05, Colombo: A prominent minister of the Sri Lankan government has called on all political parties to support the policies of the government.

Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa addressing the parliament requested the political parties which have failed at past elections to join the government.

He said that some political parties that have failed to support the government and its policies have lost its power bases among the people.

Minister Rajapaksa noted that these parties would be able to see a change in its support base if they decide to support the government policies.

According to Rajapaksa, President Mahinda Rajapaksa has given priority to the importance of public support and as a result has held several elections to seek the people's mandate for the government's policies.

He added that a majority of the country has given its mandate to the government.
