SLPP General Secretary Sagara Kariyawasam said that certain SLPP members who had been elected to local bodies via the SLPP in the last election are now preparing to contest under other political alliances for the upcoming polls.
He said that letters are being issued to the nearly 200 members of the SLPP who have decided to contest under other political alliances for the upcoming local government elections.
Sagara Kariyawasam further said that prompt measures will be taken to remove those party members and replace them with new members.
