Parliamentarian Kumara Welgama recently said that they would join the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) only if former president Mahinda Rajapaksa would be given the chairmanship and the post of general secretary should be handed over to a member of the joint opposition.

Addressing a function held in Hali-Ela, MP Welgama said that majority of the people were not pleased about the proceedings of this government and added that each and every person’s wish was to have an election.

“Consequences which would be faced by this government after an election would be evident to everyone by then. In the near future, we will decide whether we would struggle against this government in an open stage. We are getting ready for it,” he added.

He also said that they do not know from which party they would come from and added that it would be from the symbol of ‘elephant’, ‘flower bud’, ‘beetle leaf’ or any other symbol. He said that these parties and symbols could be changed even at the last moment.

“A meeting was held in Badulla recently and everyone present wanted Mr. Rajapaksa as the chairman of the SLFP, and the general secretary should be a member of the Joint Opposition,” he added. (Palitha Ariyawansa)

    Do you think this country belongs to you or your parents to make such demands. Oh sorry I almost forgot you have only passed grade 8.

    So you reckon its a big loss to the country if you don't join SLFP or stop politics all together???

    Hey Looser, you have nothing to offer to SLFP or the nation other than your hedonist behaviour and thinking.

    YES, we gave the country to MR to rule. But what did he do. He allowed his family to ruin us. Do you really want us to repeat the same.

    Bubble Banda Thursday, 02 November 2017 09:23 AM

    Mahinda in fact, robbed the public money and filled the pockets in billions of his family members, no doubt.

    Hello! Ali baba and the forty thieves have no place in a future government. It is going to be a broad alliance comprising of intellectuals and clean people

    Welgama fly a kite man, how could the SLFP leadership given to a Thief?

    Nevil Senanayake (Lawyer) Thursday, 02 November 2017 09:13 AM

    Don't day dream Welga, you robbers including your captain Alibaba Mahinda will not be allowed to join SLFP.

    Lion Viswanathan Thursday, 02 November 2017 09:19 AM

    Just an example: Swines will not be allowed to step in to even a small house. I am referring to the JO alibabas.

    roshan Thursday, 02 November 2017 09:42 AM

    We dont need you or your corrupt leader. stay away.

    ravin Thursday, 02 November 2017 10:00 AM

    Does this demand amounted to blackmailing? Anyone want to join/or be in any political party they must adhere to party constitution/rules and regulations. Not the otherway around. Be it anyone.

    Priya Thursday, 02 November 2017 10:32 AM

    Mr. Welgama , Upali Wijewardene is alive and will be back to Sri- Lanka very soon. Be careful........
