SLFP rebels want President to take over Law and Order Ministry

21 September 2018 03:04 am - 19     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Three SLFP rebel group frontliners, MPs S.B. Dissanayaka, Dilan Perera and Thilanga Sumathipala yesterday urged President Maithripala Sirisena to take over the Law and Order Ministry immediately under his wings and remove IGP Pujith Jayasundara from his post.

They alleged that there was a real threat to the lives of President Sirisena and Gotabaya Rajapaksa as exposed by Police informer Namal Kumara and added they believed that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was behind the conspiracy.

They said that the UNP and the 23 SLFP members in the government have taken the conspiracy lightly and not uttered a word on the seriousness of the attempt on the lives of the two despite the fact that it posed a threat to the national security and democratic rule of the country.

‘The UNP says that there was a conspiracy hatched by DIG Nalaka Silva to assassinate President Sirisena and former Defence Secretary Rajapaksa as exposed by Namal. This is a serious matter but it seems both the UNP and the SLFPers in the government are not concerned at all. Only Deputy Minister Sriyanai Wijewickrama talked about the seriousness of the attempt on the lives of President Sirisena and Rajapaksa and demanded a thorough investigation,” Mr. Perera said.

    Shameless guys,Who are you to give instructions to President? Before everything, find a more useless guy to take you over. Look like, you guys are stranded and more like an invalid coin,no one cares you. "Ditta Dhamma Vedaneeya Kamma."

    Sanjeewa Friday, 21 September 2018 09:20 AM

    What a joke. These jokers were not at all concerned when MR removed completely the security provided to common presidential candidate Sirisena. He was most vulnerable at that time. Trying to fish in troubled waters, opportunists.

    You better stay where you are... SLFP doesn't need you Morons. Go and lick MRs boots

    Lord Wolfstein Friday, 21 September 2018 09:33 AM

    Nonsense. Who wants to kill this president who does not do anything to anyone? The only one who would benefit would be the Rajapaksa Mafia clan and not even they would go that far

    Good if this happens then the President could first take the Rajapaksas into custody and clean up all the other Politicians from both sides who are rogues and robbed the country and form a new era by 2020 with hones genuine people. All the ones who want this to happen surrender to President now.

    Rasheed Friday, 21 September 2018 10:23 AM

    Yes, takeover to save the rogues.

    Anil Friday, 21 September 2018 10:30 AM

    Dont these mutts know that under the Constitution the President can only have the Mahaweli ministry under him and that too only for this one term. In 2002 RW brought in legislation to protect an IGP from a President by making it possible for an IGP only to be removed by Parliament.

    Well, these hypocrites should quit politics because they are just a spent force now, they are there to destroy the SLFP.

    Hubert Friday, 21 September 2018 04:40 PM

    These idiots have a metal illness and they are differently oriented people

    Samson Friday, 21 September 2018 09:33 PM

    No problem with the proposal, but who are these jokers outside the SLFP to say so. they should also be removed from the great party ASAP.
