    Goodbye, UNP.

  4. Both are useless. Need a man from outside. No capable man inside the party.

    It is the final nail on the coffin of “Sajith’s aspirations to become the UNP party leader. He showed the political circles that he is not made up of real “Leadership Substance” by accepting a newly (devious move by RW) created deputy leadership of UNP. Also at the same time by doing so both RW and Ranil ensured the death of the grand old party. Good -bye UNP.

    country for the party and not the other way round.either party is sleeping or the
    people are sleeping.

  7. A good decision by the party. The party should be careful in the selection of persons as organisers and candidates for polls. Else, the usual throat-cutters who will cross over after election as UNP candidates, will again sabotage the party.
    The former ‘crossovers’ are the ones who now enable the autocratic rule, survival of the Junta and coverup of bribery, mismanagement, corruption and wastage of the peoples’ money for grandiose projects.

    Understanding the behaviour of Sajith Premadasa during the past two years he should not be given any kind of role in the UNP. He must be sacked from the UNP.
