Five SLFP Parliamentarians had been removed from the Central Committee of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party with immediate effect, party sources said.

Accordingly, former ministers Bandula Gunawardane, S.M.Chandrasena, T.B.Ekanayake, Rohitha Abeygunawardane and Salinda Dissanayake were removed by party chairman Maithripala Sirisena.

The letters informing their removal had been received today. However, these MPs said that there were no reasons given for their removal.

“I received the letter saying that the Central Committee of the SLFP, which met recently, has decided to remove me from the Central Committee, but no reason was given,” MP Gunawardane told the Daily Mirror Online.

MP Dissanayake speaking to the Daily Mirror Online said that no explanation had been given as to why he was removed from the Central Committee and added that he was shocked at the decision as he was engaged in politics representing the SLFP for over 40 years.

He is among the SLFP MPs who are backing the call for former President Rajapaksa to be made the PM candidate of the UPFA.

    good initiative.which prove that MS has guts to kick off all ill-disciplined idiots and cronies and make SLFP a genuine self disciplined party, we want to select 225 respectable gentleman/women and elect them from which ever party to the Parliament andto be proud of it.

    The real traitors are Maithree and CBK. If they are removed the rest will fall in place for SLFP. via DM Android App

    Because, SLFP need to protect unity and integrity. It is good decision. What ever issues had with among the leaders they should appear common agenda with existing leadership. SLFP is not a private property of any individualist or group. That is peoples, party which initiated by the late Hon. Mr Bandaranayake. all the leaders must be respected basic principles of SLFP which was introduced by their foundering leaders.

    If you not obey party decision, party leader has the right to sack you from any post that you are holding. if you not agree with party decision you are always welcome to leave the party and do your own corrupted politics with your former leader MR. if he come to power you could enjoy everything including what happened in SRI LANKANS AIR LINES.

    This information specially for the attention of SLFP MPs. Please be aware that President Maithreepala Sirisena is Head of the current government and if any from SLFP or any other party criticize the activities or go against the government is clearly considered as criticizing or going against President himself. SLFPs are acting like babies and they also think President is a fool to not to understand. There are MPs who criticize the government,saying "We are not criticizing President but government." These MPs are either ignorant or they think President is ignorant. Please be careful when you criticize the government as they might not get nomination from SLFP to contest the up coming General election.

    Good Move. The crooks who support the biggest crook must go.

    J Dan Sunday, 12 April 2015 08:54 PM

    Good the basturd should be kicked out.

    Arun Vincent Sunday, 12 April 2015 10:21 AM

    Many crooks correctly believe that unless Mahinda comes back go power, they have no political future. For them, old habits die hard theory really fits. Not only expel from the party. If possible, deport them to Andaman island.

    Fair N Square Sunday, 12 April 2015 10:27 AM

    Interesting to note that ppl who were reported to the Bribery Comisson are the ones who faced omission... These idiot who were "UNTOUCHABLES" during MR regime now have their butts kicked, which they deserved... Instead of the VOTERS rejecting.. the Leadership of the SLFP has done the needful.. DO NOT give nominations to all the cronies of MR and who are seeking to bring him to power, so that the country could be raped again...

    sri lankan Saturday, 11 April 2015 11:00 PM

    This has been brewing for some time and had to be expected. MS has shown who the boss is.

    Bala Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:24 PM

    Yes party discipline needs to be enforced. These were given fair warning and allowed enough time to fall in line. Learn to join majority or depart or get kicked out.

    Voter Saturday, 11 April 2015 10:58 PM

    Very good- saboteurs should be kicked out. via DM Android App

    SLFP should maintain internal discipline and there fore their removal is justified.

    Lanka putha Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:27 AM

    dcol Sunday, 12 April 2015 01:52 AM

    Sudden decision was taken by CBK based on what has happened to her in Kurunagala. MS was just the postman.

    Manel Sunday, 12 April 2015 02:23 AM

    If they were removed for backing the rogue, thug and plunderer then it is an excellet move. Thanks.

    Aba Jayasekera Monday, 13 April 2015 07:55 AM

    Gamini Sunday, 12 April 2015 03:11 PM
