Addressing a media UNP said the Working Committee has approved the launching of a public petition campaign to get one million signatures from members of all political parties and organizations and the general public.

The official launching of the petition will take place at the New Town Hall on Saturday(10) at 10:00 a.m.

Plans have been afoot to take the petition campaign across the island at district, provincial and electorate levels to obtain the one million signatures, the UNP said.

A group led by the deputy secretary of the party Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena is coordinating the public petition campaign that will urge the UN to intervene to protect Fonseka's human rights, also said.

Meanwhile, the Working Committee has also decided to take disciplinary action against the UNP parliamentarian, Mohan Lal Grero who supporting the government's budget crossed-over to the government last month. The Working Committee has already suspended Grero from the party.
