Dayan Jayatilake has been appointed as Ambassador to Russia. Isn't it a disgrace to UNP? Don't UNP has a say in these matters?

Dayan is a good choice. Hope he will work for the country keeping aside his other loyalties - especially Rajapakses

His appointment is the result of the secret deal to save Gota! The purpose he is sent to suppress all evidence of corrupt deals by Udayanga, which now before Court. The secret deal is basically "You scratch my back; I scratch your back!"
