The United National Party (UNP) is also behind moves to bring back former President Mahinda Rajapaksa into active politics again, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne said today.

He said it was in the nature of the UNP to seize opportunities whenever possible.

“The UNP did the same in 1980. They supported Mr. Rajapaksa and a group of Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members against Sirimavo Bandarnaike,” he said.

Dr. Senaratne said in politics there were no eternal enemies and the UNP was today following the concept, ‘my enemy’s enemy is my friend’. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    19th amendment should also include that all politicos to undergo Psychiatric assesssment prior to their nominations, or else these dumbos will make our naive citizens go insane.

    Rajitha is a lier. Mahinda never went against Sirimavo. It was Anura-Maithree and Chandika-Wijaya who broke SLFP. This guy is lying all the time from his BNF days to UNP days and now in SLFP. He was in BNF with Chandrika then when C went back to SLFP this guy went to UNP and slang mud at C. Then he joined MR government and slang mud at Ranil. Now doing his dirty politics from new regiume. You are a shameful bastard Rajitha.

    What ever said and done, with out Mr. Rajapaksa Rajitha and the rest of the clan in the parliament are a lost cause.

    Lakshman De Silva Saturday, 04 April 2015 10:11 AM

    Rajita Senaratna is a memebr of the UNP coalition. It seems tha already there is a split in the new government. UNP cannot aford to bring Rajapksa back as Rajapksa will take revenge on all the mendacity stated against him without proof at the Pesidential election.

    Ganesha Saturday, 04 April 2015 09:02 PM

    If they want to bring back the dirty communal nasty dictator, identify them and strip of their post however high they are and form the government with true SLFP ers as The President is still has executive powers. What if?

    prim Friday, 03 April 2015 04:47 PM

    If this is true UNP is playing with fire.

    Fassey Saturday, 04 April 2015 10:29 AM

    Why shoud UNP bring in MR again when they have no problem working with MS. May be some corrupt ministers interested to do so.

    zimbie Friday, 03 April 2015 04:50 PM

    TRY TO PUT MR IN JAIL AND PROVE YOU A RE A GENTLEMEN

    Appuhamay Friday, 03 April 2015 04:55 PM

    Why should UNP try to spoil chances of getting a 2/3rd majority ?

    Kolannawa Kolla Saturday, 04 April 2015 11:06 AM

    Yes, It is true. UNP wants SLFP votes to be divided, so They will win in the election. simple theory.

    Giabao Friday, 03 April 2015 05:20 PM

    I think he needs mental help now.
