There are several Green Diyawanna members who already fear that their chances of returning to the council through the ballot are slim.
Among these diffident ones are some politicos representing electorates close to the lower reaches of both Kalu Ganga and Gin Ganga and another who took charge of an electorate after getting a national list seat.
During the tug o’ war over the party leadership, these politicos had stood with the Green boss. According to party sources, all these ‘unsure ones’ have been assured slots on the national list.
Given this situation, Saji loyalists believe that the ‘unsure ones’ may continue to support the Green boss.
