Apr 17, Colombo: Sri Lanka's governing United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) is unlikely to act against party members who voted against the budgets in their respective local government bodies.

National Languages and Social Integration Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara has told an English daily that the President Mahinda Rajapaksa was unlikely to take such an action since it would not be a wise move.

The President earlier stated that action would be taken against governing party local government members who had voted against their respective budgets.

Nanayakkara has explained that it was important to give an ear to what the local government members have to say since there are two sides to any story.

He has added that the members who had voted against the budget had made serious allegations of misconduct against the chairmen and that cannot be overlooked.
