UPFA MP Lohan Ratwatte said today the person who defeated the SLFP was the party chairman and as such the party could not win under the present chairman.
“SLFP supporters at grassroots level are not in favour of the present party chairman as he was the one who worked against the party and defeated it. I like to tell our supporters to be patient until the right opportunity comes,” he said.
He said the party should either remain in the opposition or in the government.
Mr. Ratwatte said the situation in the country was so complicated now and seems as if the war victory would be reversed. “The LTTE is raising its head again. LTTE prisoners should not be released. I’m completely against this move,” he said. (Nadeeka Dayaa Bandara)

I voted for SLFP up to 2010. I am writing as a former supporter. The party has changed radically from that was created to benefit the common man. It has been taken over by a coterie of corrupt politicians bent on amassing wealth by any means. The majority of followers see no harm in this, as evidenced from the preferential votes in the last election. Until the party is purged of the corrupt politicians and their cohorts, it need not win any election.

We have no respect for you or for your statements as we all know what and how you all behaved during previous elections. You are surviving by throwing the alleged ill gotten money by your father. You have done nothing as a MP other than to involve in brawls in the parliament.
