Sources close to Minister Sagala Ratnayaka vehemently denied rumours that the Minister has decided to extend his support to SLPP presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

Rumours are circulating on social media that Minister Ratnayaka is on the move to switch to the camp of Mr Rajapaksa.

Sources close to the Minister told the Daily Mirror he had never made such a remark on any occasion and added he would surely not make such a decision in the long run as well.

“He would support NDF presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa without a hitch,” the sources added.

When inquired from Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s Spokesperson Dullas Alahapperuma, he told the Daily Mirror that he was honestly unaware of such a decision made by the relevant minister.

However, SLPP MPS reiterate that a potential figure of the UNP, who is also close to UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe is preparing for a party switch. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    This government has done lot of work during the last 4 1/2 years with all the obstacles from within the unity government SLFP ministers , The president , natural disasters and MR supporters unannounced continuous strikes . UPFA and Maitree as president ruled the country for more than 25 years is it fair to compare the work done in 25 years vs 4 1/2 years , Yahapalanaya government record is much better , present government took over a country with huge foreign and local debt invested on useless project borrowed 8% or more interest rates still these loans are not settled and with tarnished image of our motherland by Rajapakse regime.Under yahapalanaya we gain our lost rights and freedom which the nation lost during under Rajapakses ruthless and dictatorial family rule . Rajapakases sold the country to China including Army HQ , 15000 hectares of land , port city project and many more we have to understand the difference of selling our national wealth and leasing Raja

    Because of yahapalana freedom our economic growth for this year is 2.5%. which is even below Afghanistan. Because of yahapalana freedom we had to use VPN to login social media, because of yahapalana freedom we lost 300 innocent lives due to Easter attack, because of yahapalana freedom the financial sector is crumbling , Because of yahapalana freedom government has taxed each and every possible person

    Oh! In the interest of the UNP, this guy and his beloved leader should switch sides and support Gota as they were doing it for the last 4 1/2 years. Jayawewa! No need to do it behind the scene.

    If sajith own, he definitely remove Ranil from PM post anyway,his close would have to work under Sajith, with second class treatment or they too show the door to exit as done by R. premadasa
