Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa said that the name 'Sri Lanka' had been dropped from this year's Sri Lanka Freedom...... Party's May Day banner on a request made by President Maithripala Sirisena.

The Minister made this comment when asked as to why only the words 'Freedom Party' had been retained on the banner having, ahead of this year's May Day rally of the Party to be held in Kandy.

Yapa added that as the rally had been primarily organized by the UPFA which consists of many political parties the President had felt that it was not all-inclusive to use the words SLFP alone on the banner. This was confirmed by UPFA General Secretary Mahinda Amaraweera.
