Wed, Jun 4, 2014, 11:55 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 04, Colombo: The National Freedom Front (NFF), a coalition party of the Sri Lankan government is undergoing further collapse after the resignation of several party representatives last month.

NFF's former Western Provincial Councilor Sugath Matugamage and Dodangoda Pradeshiya Sabha member of NFF, K.H. Wickremasinghe announced Tuesday that they would resign from the party led by Minister of Construction, Engineering Services, Housing and Common Amenities Wimal Weerawansa and join the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

The NFF leader, who recently showed signs of quitting the ruling coalition, said the government was fishing the activists of his party violating the coalition agreement.

However, the NFF members who quit the party blame the leader for not having a cordial relationship with them.
