Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) General Secretary Udaya Gammanpila said today the decision to deprive him of the status of a political party leader in parliament was wrong.

Parliament decided not to recognise Mr. Gammanpila, Wimal Weerawansa and Vasudeva Nanayakkara as leaders of their respective parties but as members of the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA).

Being a part of the UPFA would deprive them of the privileges enjoyed by Party Leaders. Mr. Gammanpila said the decision was not in keeping with parliamentary tradition. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    AT LEAST NOW STOP TALKING, ACCEPT DEFEAT AND GO SLEEP.

    Only Wimal will have to hire vehicle other than a 3 wheeler vehicle to travel along with party members. Other 2 can happily go in a motor cycle.

    The decision is right. How can these people be considered as party leaders, if they contest on their own get will not even get 1000 votes.

    YOU ARE THE LEADER OF YOUR PARTY, BUT ONLY A SPEC IN UPFA

    It irks us even to see you - racial bigot. One man parties leading nowhere. Imagine if all 225 members were party leaders on one man shows - what fun.

    After all Pivithuru Urumaya is not even a registered political party. Gammanpila guy is the leader and secretary and also the only member of that !

    The three can name there party 3 in 1 soup kata.

    Leo Monday, 07 September 2015 03:46 PM

    So the only reason they want party leadership is to enjoy the privileges?

    Sapu Monday, 07 September 2015 03:46 PM

    How you expect to be a party leader when your party is unregistered?

    das Monday, 07 September 2015 04:14 PM

    One man parties reduced to nothing!!

    Nimal Monday, 07 September 2015 04:48 PM

    As you are working for the people, you do not need any privileges, right?

    Sincere Monday, 07 September 2015 05:06 PM

    But it keeps with aspirations of people!

    karthi Monday, 07 September 2015 05:09 PM

    Good to know that you and Wimal are keen followers of parliamentary traditions.

    Jeff Monday, 07 September 2015 05:15 PM

    Well said!
