Two valueless MPs now described as heroes: JO

13 December 2017 08:58 am - 19     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


JO MP Rohitha Abeygunawardana said yesterday the two MPs who defected from the joint opposition (JO) who had no value were being described as heroes.

He said if anyone wanted to leave the JO based on principles, they should have done so three years ago.

“The cross over of an MP no longer creates a trend. It won’t affect the people’s opinion anymore. It is only a change in the head count and not the voter base. There are several MPs to come and join us too,” he said.

He said they have loosened the roots of the ‘yahapalanaya’ tree and that it was only a matter of time till it collapsed.

Meanwhile, MP Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena said the two MPs leaving the JO won’t make a big impact and assured their principles won’t change.

He said there was a huge response from applicants seeking nominations to contest the election from the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna and therefore, it was difficult to give everyone an opportunity.

“However, the reason to leave the JO should not be termed as issues related with nominations,” he said.(Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Mr. Rohitha Abeygunawardana I must correct you. So far, all "JO" MPs had no value for the population and certainly only the biggest criminals will be given a nomination. Hopefully all the atrocities of the nominated crooks will be published in the press before the election.

    People have the same opinion of you and your team. No body is there to follow your footstep when you are moving out of your party. That is why you and your team do not have any value within the SLFP. Otherwise, you should do your business without giving media show for these two people.

    the entire JO consists of people with no value

    They become valueble only if they rob golden chains?

    To us all politicians are of no value. While you're at it why not hand over nominations to some of your dear colleagues who are guests of the govt. I'm sure they have a good following.

    When Yapa says : their principles won’t change, does he not mean safeguarding the biggest looters this country has had.

    Politics is a Bazaar where politicians are sold and bought according to their qualifications , that is, from one star to seven star status. So no one is valueless.

    Gune Wednesday, 13 December 2017 03:18 PM

    You are spot on! They have no VALUE because they didn't rob.You and MR have great VALUE because you both robbed our country silly.

    With these crossovers, the Jokers' Organization (JO) can start to weed out those valueless MP's by starting with you. Sour Grapes, that's what the fox thought out aloud.
