An angry UNP Puttalam District Member of Parliament (MP) Range Bandara has written to UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayaka over the latter’s comments about Bandara’s mental state and allegations that he had ‘ulterior motives’.
In a letter which was also sent to the Chairman of the UNP, Gamini Jayawickrama Perera and the Deputy leader of the party, Karu Jayasuriya, Bandara said that Attanayaka had no right to comment about his mental state as only a certified doctor could comment about that matter and not someone who pretended to be a doctor.
In addition to this, Bandara also answered to allegations made by Attanayaka in interviews in which he had said that Bandara had ulterior motives.
Bandara replied saying that his political goal for the past 16 years was to establish a government for the people.
In the letter, Bandara also questioned why the working committee had not brought up the subject of disciplinary action regarding his assault incident on two occasions in which the working committee had met after April 23. (Daily Mirror online)

Very sad how Bandara is treated - he alone took on the mighty Thalagoya in Anamaduwa when no UNPer dared to go there.
Well that is the usual Karapincha treatment.

Apparently, Bandara, is making excuses to cross over. he openly declared the concern of the president whn he was hospitalised. No party will over look an incident like this. there must be something deep. We only see the tip of the ice berg.

He will cross over. There is no unity in UNP now. leadership has been so weak. when leadership becomes weak any thing can happen to any place, organization or even country. time has come to change UNP leadership, 20 million people are watching stupid things happening in UNP

It is obvious Bandara is contemplating a long jump and making all this fuss to justify his action.

No party or government can work efficiently and successfully when there is greed for personal power and hidden agendas. Let the UNP now open up a can of worms and then have a complete cleansing.

Believe there is a mass conspiracy to dilute the party. We see allegations, counter allegations, being at each other, but no constructive effort undertaken to strengthen the party in the march forward in regaining power to govern.

I think its only fair by Bandara that an inquiry be held, and the miscreant punished accordingly. There should be justice. Otherwise it will end in a crossover.
