May 06, Colombo: An ally of Sri Lanka's governing party, the National Freedom Front (NFF) has unanimously adopted several proposals at its second national convention to submit to the government in order to continue with its support.

The party held its second national convention at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium Monday evening under the theme "Defeating fatal traps against the Motherland".

The NFF will present the 12 proposals for reforms to the President and the United People's Freedom Alliance government, the party decided at the annual convention held.

The party vowed to abandon the Government if the proposals for reforms were disregarded by the government.

NFF Leader, Minister Wimal Weerawansa addressing the convention said although Sri Lanka defeated the terrorism the government has miserably failed to take measures to defeat separatism and racism.

He said his party does not want to put on a false display of unity while being in the governing party and the NFF would issue a red notice to the government.

The party requested the government to swift actions against any organizations that seek to disrupt the peaceful coexistence and harmony among the people from different communities in the country. According to Weerawansa, extensive dialogues will be held with regard to the correct direction in which the country should move.
