Applied, didn’t receive SLPP membership: Roshan

UPFA MP Roshan Ranasinghe yesterday said they have only applied for the membership of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) but they have not yet received the membership.

The issue of UPFA MP’s joining the SLPP arose in parliament early this week as several MP’s argued that MP’s who obtained the SLPP membership are ineligible to retain their parliament seats.

Responding to criticisms, MP Ranasinghe said they have submitted applications to obtain membership from the SLPP but the party's secretary and national organiser had not given them membership as yet.

"They accepted our applications but did not give the membership as yet. We were elected to parliament from the UPFA. From that day, we continue to pay Rs. 3,000 monthly as membership subscription fee to the SLFP. These fees have been deducted from our November salaries as well,” he told a news briefing.

    yes we saw in news how MR and many others obtained the SLPP application forms. (not the memberships)

    As usual double standards to dupe the public and voters to finally jump to either side to benefit themselves. Absolute good test to show they are scoundrels.

    Try to get the media footage and telecast to public

    Mandayan Friday, 21 December 2018 02:49 PM

    To get to the throne, payment was made to ensure boycott of franchise of public in North and so this is peanuts for you guys. What a power greedy monsters.

    True citizen Friday, 21 December 2018 09:57 AM

    Whom you are trying to lying?

    Lawry Friday, 21 December 2018 09:58 AM

    What this man says is that technically MR and clan cheated the general public by appearing in the media as formally accepting SLPP membership. We have taken note that they are again claiming positions based on untruth and deception. JVP will high light this come next elections. We will vote.

    Ha Ha Ha! A nice fairy tale. When I apply for a national ID, I get a receipt as a reference to my application. When the process is complete, I am issued with the ID. All these BUD jokers proudly displayed their BUD membership card on social media. Now this. Makes me roll.

    Is SLPP such a Grand party to take such a long time for the application process? Maybe they are checking your qualifications in thuggery. LMAO!

    Borat Friday, 21 December 2018 10:17 AM

    What a bunch of hypocrites. These rascals are supposed to run the country. Kick the buggers out

    ram Friday, 21 December 2018 10:34 AM

    Roshan,Do you think we all public are fools and to believe what you say.

    Don Friday, 21 December 2018 10:39 AM

    Who are they fooling? This is the issue with MR and his no class ministrers who think we are all stupid.. trying to mislead the people always for their benefit.. must chaise these roughs who has the capacity to lie in this manner. Cheers

    willowsd Friday, 21 December 2018 11:35 AM

    Simple as that "No Backbone" imagine them running the country

    Sofia Friday, 21 December 2018 11:48 AM

    So they show SLFP card to get benefits immediately and keep SLPP card handy in purse to show if that opens another door to fool us.

    Bala Friday, 21 December 2018 11:53 AM

    I am confused. When you applied to SLPP, it means you have left SLFP in spirit and flesh. So now why this "revert to base" story of we have not left. May be forgot to take all belongings, now coming back for more.

    somegeek Friday, 21 December 2018 08:28 PM

    @Bala are you a computer programmer?

    Jude Friday, 21 December 2018 01:00 PM

    Huh !! Another "Drama Queen" !!!

    This fellow is talking nonsense. No one is going to believe his stories

    Sanath Friday, 21 December 2018 01:41 PM

    These fellows are opportunists. They are trying to benefit either way. As matters did not work out the way they expected, now they are denying being SLPP members in fear of losing their current seats. All these guys are cheats.

    Dulan Friday, 21 December 2018 01:48 PM

    No court will agree to this crap

    Dee Friday, 21 December 2018 01:53 PM

    Wow! Didn't know such grand ceremony was held at wijerama residence to handover application forms? Can imagine the show if membership was given?

    Safeek Friday, 21 December 2018 01:53 PM

    Fooling around

    leonard Friday, 21 December 2018 02:19 PM

    Was it to be refused membership that you applied for membership?

    Hautaum Friday, 21 December 2018 04:27 PM
