    I thought Mahinda S was a frog(crossover) still with UNP membership. Surprise older SlFPers have been overlooked.

    Doc Jay Saturday, 24 January 2015 11:12 AM

    What ? Are you kidding me? SB and Dilan?

    Gamunu Kulasekera Saturday, 24 January 2015 11:17 AM

    So, when is As Bee Diss going to strip naked Chandrika and chase her down the roads ?. Not sure why this thug was appointed to any position other than a cell mate of anyone at Welikada jail.

    Ranil is controlling all this.

    Sb promoted , what a party

    Don Saturday, 24 January 2015 06:44 PM

    This was a time for the SLFP clean its act following so many criminal activities being exposed under MR. SB falls in to this deplorable category as the way he conducts, the way he behaves, the way he talks, the things he had said implying stuffing ballot boxes etc. There should not be any place for gutter politicians in Lanka. Unfortunately they seem not to have learnt their lesson to have decent , intellectual, sincere people in high positions. So, what can we expect from them- more thugs, criminals, rapists, drug lords representing them probably selected by undesirables like SB!

    dona Saturday, 24 January 2015 06:44 PM

    with SB in the central committee of the SLFP, the party will be doomed.

    Thilak Monday, 26 January 2015 09:49 AM

    Sad news. SB will ruin the party

    Senerat Saturday, 24 January 2015 11:48 AM

    All four contributed to the downfall of SLFP. Now they will finish it.They have one thing in common i.e. none of them are accepted to the govt.

    Great move by SLFP for making S.B vice chairman. Good to see a man who can make a difference given a rightful place.

    Niha Saturday, 24 January 2015 07:33 PM

    Weldone for appointing S.B as vice chairman. he will do a good job as always.

    Duminda Saturday, 24 January 2015 12:22 PM

    Really!! It look like real koththu rotiya now

    The God Father Saturday, 24 January 2015 07:55 PM

    Why SB? Garbage collector can do much better job than this moron.

    Dr M.L.Najimudeen Saturday, 24 January 2015 12:24 PM

    One of the political mistakes of former president Chandrika Bandaranayakke was taking S.B.Dissanayakke, Mervyn Silva and G.L.Peiris into politics

    manel fonseka Saturday, 24 January 2015 12:37 PM

    SB - Vice Chairman! That solves the question of which party NOT to vote for in April. Which doesnt mean I will vote at all, but just how deaf and blind can politicians be to public opinion.

    willowsd Saturday, 24 January 2015 12:38 PM

    It is the beginning of the downfall of SLFP with SB as Vice Chairmen??

    Waco Saturday, 24 January 2015 12:47 PM

    President must refrain from taking part in party politics as long as he or she holds that high position. Because that position represents the entire nation.

    citizen Saturday, 24 January 2015 08:33 PM

    What else a set of scarecrows can do ?

    Nimal Saturday, 24 January 2015 09:00 PM

    Did Ranil make the SLFP appointments too?

    Dayawathie Saturday, 24 January 2015 02:00 PM

    Are they so bankrupt to appoint people like SB Dissanayaka for this position ?.

    Cheers Saturday, 24 January 2015 02:05 PM

    Come back is eminent in the general election including MR

    OMG Saturday, 24 January 2015 02:22 PM

    Best thing is to split the SLFP into two, the ones with the government and others are not. MR was trying to do the same with UNP and now he has been almost beaten in his own game.

    How is Chndrika live with an untamed creature like SB?

    Fassey Saturday, 24 January 2015 02:48 PM

    SB as vice Chairman ! Sympathies to SLFP

    Singha Viya Sri Saturday, 24 January 2015 02:55 PM

    This is harakiri.. Are these leaders of SLFP out of their heads? With SB there, its just suicide. Ranil must be laughing out of pants. Atlast UNP is in good shape.

    A W Abdulkany Saturday, 24 January 2015 03:28 PM

    Who cares. SB is the most hated person in Sri Lanka among all women and descent men. It is the utter disgrace to appoint to any position. Men like him should be banished and kicked out of the country. Sri Lanka is for descent human beings. via DM Android App

    when going gets tough,the tough gets going. It proves true with SLFP with the appointment of the untouchable like SB

    Nalin Saturday, 24 January 2015 04:50 PM

    This is not the time to get new positions.First do what you said in the election and try to protect and bring our great leader Hon Mahinda Rajapaksa as our Country president .We did not vote to these people .We vote only for our leader .If these people foget our leader we can stop voting to SLFP. We just need our leader...

    M.I.M. Iqbal Saturday, 24 January 2015 05:00 PM

    My heavens what moral you can expect from a party who appoints a person who wanted to strip its patron and parade naked? I am getting confused and how both can coexist in the same party. Who is fooling who?

    Richard Saturday, 24 January 2015 05:02 PM

    SBD appointment is idiotic especially considering his utterances in the recent past. Surely there must be someone else who has much better credibility.

    abeeth Saturday, 24 January 2015 05:12 PM

    Although it was a mistake with that comment about CBK, S.B. Dissanayake is an extremely capable politian. He has also administered the Ministries such as sports, samurdhi, agriculture and Higher Education to great heights. Specially higher education he faced resistance from certain factions as he fought hard towards reforms and ragging.

    K. C. John Saturday, 24 January 2015 10:55 AM

    Standards of SLFP are seen, particularly in the appointment of S. B. Dissanayake who is on record stating that he wants to strip and parade naked the Patron of the party!

    Ruwani Saturday, 24 January 2015 05:30 PM

    This is very Bad News,we all new ,how powerfull was bandaranayaka Birth Day of 08 Januars,the Day save slfp.miss chandrika bandaranaika Must be Ever Leader for the Party like Soniya Gandhi. President mr.sirisena Must be neutral,

    party man Saturday, 24 January 2015 10:55 AM

    Congratulations At last the SLFP is going down the right path.With appointment of SB as a Vice Chairman SLFP is DOOMED>i

    Rahan Saturday, 24 January 2015 05:33 PM

    The SLFP has has gone into the hands of thugs by absorbing SB into the committee.

    Mason Saturday, 24 January 2015 10:57 AM

    It is a shame for the SLFP that they should go to Dirty Mouth SBD to be one of their Deputy Chairman

    Rahan Saturday, 24 January 2015 05:33 PM

    The SLFP has has gone into the hands of thugs by absorbing SB into the committee.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 24 January 2015 05:33 PM

    Shows the debilitating poor standards of the SLFP since MR took its leadership. Perhaps, we will soon be treated to the spectacle of a Vice President (vice, indeed!) stripping a lady Patron of the party.
