Democratic Left Front (DLF) Leader and United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) MP Vasudeva Nanayakkara today opined that it was not wise to create a breakaway party of UPFA as it would pave the way for the Maithripala - UNP alliance to take control of the party.

MP Nanayakkara who refused to accept the leadership of President Maithripala Sirisena in UPFA, instead proposed that the party should contest the provincial council election without the backing of the President.

“We have all the liberty to use the name United Peoples Freedom Alliance. Not even the party chairman can take action against us for using the name. The technical issue we will face when contesting is using the betel leaf as it belongs to the party chairman. We will find a separate symbol, an independent one, to contest under,” he told a news briefing.

He said no one could take away their right of using party name but said if there were any obstacles, they would still use Peoples Freedom Alliance (PFA) to contest for election. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    You are an opportunist leftist and untrustworthy.

    Yes , Yes , Yes . The whole world knows you have no chance to get at least 1000 votes if you break from UPFA. You are just another head in the political world though you spent your entire life in politics .Sad but true. So better retire from politics and enjoy your old age at home.
