State Minister Wasantha Senanayake today questioned presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa on his stance on giving posts to Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe, Ravi Karunanayake and Rishad Bathiudeen in a Premadasa Cabinet.

In a letter to Minister Premadasa, the State Minister said he needed further clarification from the former on the role of Minister Rauff Hakeem in a future Premadasa Government.

“If your answers to these questions are not satisfactory, I will have to withdraw from your election campaign. However, I will remain as an MP in the party,” he said.

    Oh. Getting ready for the next big 'leap', are we?

    Warren David Wednesday, 23 October 2019 03:49 PM

    Well, first signs of trying to make a somersault to the other side. A shameless person and a gross disgrace to the great "Senanayake family".

    He is ready to jump for the second time. Sajith must ignore him. Let him honour the contract with MR

    Very very true

    Why remain in the part if you cannot support the party candidate. Resign now itself .

    Sangaran Balasingam Wednesday, 23 October 2019 05:18 PM

    He is not worth even 10 votes. How can this idiotic and backboneless person dictate terms to Sajith?

    Rome Tuan Wednesday, 23 October 2019 05:36 PM

    Good view of point!

    Bandu Wednesday, 23 October 2019 05:36 PM

    First step then hop and jump like in October 2018.

    Senanayake snake under the grass.

    These are the guys to be send off from politics. Voters should note and take appropriate action when come before you.

    He is the biggest frog. Jumping across parties. He may have been paid by somebody. What has he done for the country anyway?

    Ponnusamy Ravindran Wednesday, 23 October 2019 08:03 PM

    Why do you want to cause a strife and scatter votes? It seems Senanayake has a hidden agenda? An attempt to strike in the back with some ulterior motive. I suspect caste and class issue.

    Azhard Wednesday, 23 October 2019 08:17 PM

    Bye bye

    Kumara Dharmarathne Wednesday, 23 October 2019 08:48 PM

    Although, he thinks that he is a stalwart in politics, he is really a "Podian" in Sri Lanka politics.

    Sujatha Wednesday, 23 October 2019 08:59 PM

    Good Riddance.This fellow is neither a True Democrat nor a UNPer .He has no business staying in Sajith's side.

    Lawry Wednesday, 23 October 2019 10:20 PM

    Wasantha coming from the distinguished family was to be appointed PM under Sajith leadership. But he chose to jump. Sajith should reply like this.

    Gune Wednesday, 23 October 2019 11:22 PM

    He is about to jump. Zero credibility!!!

    parakum Thursday, 24 October 2019 04:44 AM
