Colombo Mayor A. J. M. Muzammil today alleged the ruling UPFA wanted to field his wife Feroza Muzammil as one of its Colombo District candidates for the Western Provincial Council or to stop her from contesting from the UNP.

Addressing a ceremony organized by the A. H. M. Muzammil foundation and Kantha Saviya to distribute spectacles to the needy in Colombo, he said the UNPers who prevented her from contesting the election by forcing the UNP leadership not to give her the ticket actually worked according to the UPFA agenda.

The Colombo Mayor therefore alleged that it was a Colombo District UNP MP Ravi Karunanayake and two party candidates contesting the Western provincial Council forced the party leadership and the nomination board to refrain from giving nomination to his wife.

Mr. Muzammmil who dismissed allegations that he was working with the government, questioned whether he would have allowed his wife to seek nominations from the UNP to contest the provincial council election, if it was so.

The Colombo Mayor therefore said he would remain with the UNP and chase away those UNP members who are trying to destroy the party.

Mr. Karunanayake who responded said none of the 17 organizers in Colombo wanted Ms. Muzammil to contest the provincial council election. He said the Mayor should concentrate on working for the welfare of rate payers in the city instead of talking about his wife’s nomination. He said party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe could also field his wife as a candidate if Mr. Muzammil’s argument was acceptable. (Yohan Perera)

    Sinhala saying goes thus:"URAN KEKUNA THALANAKOTA HABAN KUKULANTA MAGULLU".
    UNP National Leader should avert these arguments.

    Ravi has done a timely intervention to protect UNP, I believe,. I suspect Muzammils plot to cross over with his wife to UPFA after winning the election by her.

    Mr. Muzammil is a successful candidate popularly elected to be the Mayor of Colombo and his wife is well known for her charity works among Colombo residents. But Ranil is a born loser and many people don`t even know whether he has a wife. So, Ravi, don`t talk nonsense.

    DEAR MUZA, THE VOTES THAT YOU POLLED LAST TIME WAS NOT FOR YOU, BUT IT IS FOR UNP.
    IN CASE IF YOU CONTEST UNDER UPFA, YOU ARE SURE TO LOSE YOUR DEPOSIT.

    Yes, Muzammil won only because he was a UNPer and not because he was popular.

    Here is one cunning old fox. He's on the winning side whatever the outcome. Mr on one side Mrs on the other. Maybe the others can follow this smart move and nobody looses.

    two unp heavy weights,stop this joke now.

    Public Friday, 28 February 2014 01:58 AM

    Struggle, struggle! One thing for sure, Ranil is gonna come to power as long as he lives.

    hero Friday, 28 February 2014 07:35 AM

    This is unacceptable ...

    Muzammil is a greedy fellow who could change his cap at any directions where he could get more favours. That is why he is playing a hide and seek game with Ranil and MR. For sure, in the near future he will join UPFA, once his pocket is filled with Dollars.

    Blessing Friday, 28 February 2014 02:15 AM

    Afte some time Muzammil might say he won because of his wife. Is his wife so important to be talke about? Muzammil should be removed from party if UNP really wants to survive.

    Bawnis Kalubaba Thursday, 27 February 2014 04:40 PM

    Muza, you know pretty well that you came to power because of the party (UNP) and not because of your eligibility or capabilities. You are just a peanut and anyone can buy you throwing few currency notes. It is enough you guy, talking about your young wife and now only concentrate on your responsibilities and the promises you gave to Colombo masses.

    Grace Thursday, 27 February 2014 04:47 PM

    Mr.Muzamil is creating a situation which will lead the UNP to expel him from the party so that he can join the Government.

    Top Cat Thursday, 27 February 2014 06:02 PM

    Who is this pin heat who can even make a proper speech. The get the hell out of the UNP or fire the fellow.

    Azee Saturday, 01 March 2014 08:58 PM

    Ravi talks as if he is a great leader, but when in power as a Cabinet Minister,all that he tried to do was to keep the CWE open for business 24 hrs. of the day.What mad idea it was ? via DM Android App

    Your judgement is perfectly correct. Cap has started to turn.
