General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party: Dayasiri Jayasekera says, there is a dispute with regard to the symbol under which to contest, when forming an alliance between the Sri Lanka Freedom Party and the Sri Lanka Podu Jana Peramuna.
Both parties have conflicting views in this regard.
Speaking at a media briefing held today, Mr.Jayasekera said, a common symbol that is acceptable to all should be agreed upon, if an alliance is to be formed.
He further stated, discussions are continuing into forming an alliance, and noted, the Sri Lanka Freedom Party has made a lot of sacrifices in this venture.
He also stated, disciplinary action will be taken against those who defect from the SLFP and promote other political parties.
