The United National Party (UNP) is taking steps to remove four senior members who have decided to vote with the government for the constitutional reforms next week in Parliament, UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayaka told Daily Mirror online.

Attanayaka added that the decision to remove any UNP members who voted with the government was arrived at the recent UNP Working Committee meeting.

As a result, four of the UNP’s senior members Abdul Cader, Lakshman Seneviratne, Earl Gunasekara and Manusha Nanayakkara will be removed from the party over the next few days.

Attanayaka further said that disciplinary action will be taken against the UNP MPs who will go against the party wishes. (Daily Mirror online)

    Are those four UNP members supporting the government in a bid to punish Ranil Wickremasinghe? Little do they realize that by their actions they are punishing the entire nation.

    PARAMANATHAN.K Saturday, 04 September 2010 05:29 AM

    Only RW will remain in the party and still he will be the sole leader. Good luck Ranil for the good work done.

    D.Navaratne Saturday, 04 September 2010 02:47 PM

    Amila Perera Saturday, 04 September 2010 06:40 AM

    Feel so sad of the giant UNP. The single largest democratic party in this country. Even though it is too late RW should consider forming a National Govt which will allow some breathing space for UNP.

    Babanis Saturday, 04 September 2010 01:15 AM

    Ultimately the UNP will be left without many senior members, barring a few.

    Wasantha Saturday, 04 September 2010 02:09 AM

    Useless effort. After left how do you remove them. Nonsense.Let them to enjoy benefits as long as they wish and come back like Karu again.

    channa Saturday, 04 September 2010 02:34 AM

    Soon nobody will be left in the party.

    Paul Fernando Saturday, 04 September 2010 03:08 AM

    Can they come back?

    JEM D Saturday, 04 September 2010 03:33 AM

    At a recent press briefing The UNP asked the Government to allow the members to vote according to their conscience.

    So why wont the UNP follow what they preach.

    Sri Lankan Saturday, 04 September 2010 03:46 AM

    I hope this is the end of UNP Party

    Holman Saturday, 04 September 2010 04:07 AM

    By Wednesday there will be a perahara crossing over. Then who will be left in the UNP ?

    Defender Saturday, 04 September 2010 04:15 AM

    If this continues, only RW and Tissa A will remain in the party.

    Bala Saturday, 04 September 2010 04:34 AM

    If they are against Ranil - why take us to a dictatorship by voting for destruction of liberty.. Cutting the nose to spite the face but not a solution. Better they leave the party immediately.
