A new chapter in the feud between two clans

The Dissanayake clan ruled the roost in Kalawewa in Rajarata for a long time. Later this clan was ousted from this key constituency when the Sena family formed close ties with the deposed strongman. The Sena clan held sway over the area since then.

The January 8 regime change saw the onset of a winter of despair for the Sena family with the elder sibling losing his Ministerial status and the younger one his lordship over the province. 

Quite recently the Sena family lost Kalawewa as well when the well-known scion of the Dissanayake clan was appointed the chief organizer for this constituency. The young one of the Dissanayake clan was among the few Blue Diyawanna members to have aligned with the Maithri camp ahead of the last big poll and the new Big Boss appointed him as the chief organizer for this coveted constituency as a token of his appreciation of the latter’s unwavering allegiance to him, they say. However, the Sena brothers are said to be waiting for the opportune moment to hit back at the young Dissanayake clan member.
