MPs and Ministers of the government reiterate their commitment to strengthen the victorious path, without becoming a pray of the anti patriotic and vicious forces. Minister C.B. Rathnayake at a media briefing at the Sri Lanka Freedom Party Headquarters today said that the genuine SLFPer never agrees to a Sri Lanka Freedom Party acting according to the agenda of the United National Party. Former General Secretary has become a pawn of the UNP agenda. The peoples' representatives are entrusted with a special task on their public responsibilities over their personnel expectations. Minister Rathnayake further said that no room will be left for any enemy force to destroy the SLFP. He added that certain social websites have published false information regarding himself leaving the government. He added that however, he will never leave the party. Minister Rathnayake further said that he will extend his maximum contributions along with the people in the Nuwara Eliya district for the victory of President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the forthcoming presidential election. 
 
Senior Minister Piyasena Gamage participating in the media briefing said he has been representing Parliament as a member of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party since the year 1989. He added that he has no intention to leave the party. If there are any problems relating to executive presidency, these problems should be resolved internally through discussion. Senior Minister Gamage has stressed that not a single peoples' representative in the Galle district is prepared to leave room for the UNP to come to power by making use of internal issues. 
 
Minister Reginald Cooray said that he will continue to dedicate for the victory of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who has liberated the country from terrorism and protected the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the nation. The progress parties and progressing people continue to remain with the President. Those who have uttered to abolish the executive presidential system within 100 days, have now reduce their timeframe to 24 hours. Minister Cooray further said that such statements only break the confidence placed on this group by the people. Mr. Reginal Cooray attended that no power will be able to prevent the victory of the President, despite the formation of whatever evil forces.
