The UNP today suspended the membership of MPs Range Bandara, P. Thevarapperuma, A. Abeysinghe and two other UNP provincial councillors charging that they had attended Thursday’s Hyde Park Rally despite the UNP asking them not to do so, a party official said.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake told Daily Mirror, the letters informing them of their suspension have been sent to them. He said the party had also decided to suspend the membership of 15 more members soon.

    Suspend Ranil permanently for not winning a single election.....

    Big Ears Friday, 19 October 2012 05:16 PM

    At this rate the UNP will die a natural death or it may survive if the leader goes before the party passes away.

    All clear Bullshit...! Ranil should go home first. via DM Android App

    Suspension ?? I Remember my school days !! Names were mentioned during assembly on Monday and Fridays !!

    Lobo Friday, 19 October 2012 10:36 AM

    Seems like MR is the unofficial leader of the opposition and Ranil does his bidding.

    sirisena Friday, 19 October 2012 10:38 AM

    Hussein, Well done for what? For keeping UNP out of power for nearly two decades.

    Imran Hussein Friday, 19 October 2012 10:39 AM

    Sirisena, lets be practical. Is it RW's fault that UNP didnt come to power? Who is responsible for UNP's mess today? Its non other than Mr Jayasooriya. What the deputy leader Mr S Premadasa's contribution apart from cutting grass under his boss' feet? We dont which side Dayasiri is in, yes?
    It must be a colletive efforts of every member of the party but what they are doing?
    There is no option other than kick the people out when found guilty, insubordination and for sabotage.

    Ros Friday, 19 October 2012 10:47 AM

    those unp leaders (ranil and co)are just the puppets.better to follow general sarath fonseca .atleast you know where you stand.

    UNP also like our cricket team never wins the finals!! via DM Android App

    Mahesh Friday, 19 October 2012 11:00 AM

    Well Done Ranil.After next general election you will be just an ordinary citizen. You can enjoy your selfe.If you are contesting we will never vote for UNP

    kribath Friday, 19 October 2012 11:00 AM

    UNP will come to power one day, but not with Ranil, take my word.

    Anu Friday, 19 October 2012 11:01 AM

    not a very good decision. RW should be chased out

    Ros Saturday, 20 October 2012 09:41 AM

    guys,common get together and help gen sarath to win the battle against this corrupt family run bloody government.namal R doesnt even know how to spell the words LAWYER...its a joke.

    summer thorn Friday, 19 October 2012 11:32 AM

    Look at it this way, UNP just lost three parilmantary votes and now SF has nearly 6 members supporting him from in side the parliament.

    hik hik Friday, 19 October 2012 11:24 AM

    How many people(ministers and voters) remain in the party ?

    true sri lankan Friday, 19 October 2012 11:41 AM

    Good Decision ..... UNP has a standard

    Ahmad Friday, 19 October 2012 11:47 AM

    Even winter will not happen in SL. No one ready to die

    Junior Citizen Friday, 19 October 2012 11:47 AM

    Only Ranil and Tissa will remain by the time they go for next elections-- Poor SF was hanging on to Karu's D-rope, the same way Sajith dumped Karu- they all wanted us to vote for SF, so we did- Nuts, they have the audacity to say, its a big mistakes- What will happen to us if we follow these guys.

    Faris - KSA Friday, 19 October 2012 12:22 PM

    Entire UNPers are rejected by the voters. thus there is nothing left to suspend.

    Imran Hussein Friday, 19 October 2012 12:59 PM

    Correct, thats why the double game players must go. How can you come to power when you have agents within the party who works for MR. How can UNP come to power when people, specialy the UNPers keep blaming the leader for wearing sunglasses? Let him clean the house first. Its eazy to defeat an enemy but not the traitor.

    GOODNIGHT Friday, 19 October 2012 12:51 PM

    HOPE UNP WILL TAKE THE RIGHT METHOD TO REMOVE THEM NOW (SO THAT THE COURTS WILL NOT INTERFERE, WHICH WILL RESULT IN PUBLICITY TO THEM), TO FINISH THIS PROBLEM FOR EVER. IF UNP DOES NOT PUT PARTY DISCIPLINE FIRST, FOR ALL MEMBERS IN EQUAL WAY, THE UNP WILL NEVER RISE.

    channa Friday, 19 October 2012 01:10 PM

    At the end no one will be left in the UNP otherthan RW and his male friends

    NSJPerera Friday, 19 October 2012 01:27 PM

    The entire UNP will soon fit into a three wheeler!!!!

    jockerr Friday, 19 October 2012 12:00 AM

    cancel everyone then anyway your precious oppression will be gone.. via DM Android App

    Bariks Friday, 19 October 2012 01:20 PM

    You mean a Sub Standard !

    Hawk Friday, 19 October 2012 07:40 AM

    They should be chased out of the UNP, they have abide the rules of the UNP constituion.

    Andrew Pitugala Friday, 19 October 2012 07:32 AM

    There you go! Ranil will have some more friends in Govt.

    Pottaya Friday, 19 October 2012 07:49 AM

    rehan Friday, 19 October 2012 01:42 PM

    Rohan Friday, 19 October 2012 07:58 AM

    They will never enter Parliament contesting under Fonseka's party.

    Kay Parker Friday, 19 October 2012 02:07 PM

    Please suspend Ranil, Tissa and rest of the Clowns for loosing all the elections

    smartass Saturday, 20 October 2012 04:41 AM

    ANTON Friday, 19 October 2012 08:14 AM

    KARU'S STRATEGIC PLAN WORKED.

    Aney Machang Friday, 19 October 2012 08:10 AM

    Suspend all the UNP ers and you will be left with only Tissa!

    Gamini Udagepola Saturday, 20 October 2012 04:56 AM

    UNP will be a party of one man soon, if they don't adopt the changes needed within.

    dont insult us Friday, 19 October 2012 08:18 AM

    sinking ship....waiting till the masses revolt like the Arab spring to come in to power.

    jagath Friday, 19 October 2012 08:33 AM

    Begining of the end of the UNP. Ranil & co will ruin the GOP.

    Perera Friday, 19 October 2012 12:00 AM

    Suspend all ranil. You'll soon have a one man party. via DM Android App

    Ravishan Friday, 19 October 2012 08:26 AM

    when would RW be suspended for supporting the Govt?

    rehan Friday, 19 October 2012 08:30 AM

    very good decision.

    HOMO Friday, 19 October 2012 03:32 PM

    Do you mean Ranil, Kandy rugger boss, Mangala, Akila and ... who else

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 19 October 2012 08:43 AM

    Serves them right. If one joins any organization, including a political party, one is expected to follow its rules and regulations and if one wants to have his own way, then he is completely free to go away. Being in the membership and challenging it openly is definitely a no-no.

    Small Man Friday, 19 October 2012 03:37 PM

    Maybe downsizing.

    Imran Hussein Friday, 19 October 2012 09:05 AM

    About time.
    Why having those when there is no loyality, commitments and discipline. Anyone is free to go and join MR or SF.
    Well done RW/Tissa.

    Imran Hussein Friday, 19 October 2012 09:00 AM

    After all whats GOP when MR is ruining the whole country.
