Former North Central Province Chief Minister Berty Premalal  Dissanayake said that 120 UPFA local government members of the Anuradhapura district will resign if he is not appointed Chief Minister of the council.

Referring to the resignation and subsequent declaration by Minister S.M Chandrasena to the effect that his brother S.M Ranjith was assured to be the next Chief Minister, Dissanayake said that it was only a declaration by the minister and not a decision of the party.

“That is what he is saying but the party has not taken any decision to that effect” he said.

Dissanayake also said that in the event S.M. Ranjith is appointed Chief Minister he would not accept any ministerial portfolios.

“I will sit independently in the council and won’t accept any ministerial portfolio in the event he is appointed” he said.( Athula Bandara)

    Berty, the North Central Province will prosper without you for sure. Time for you to go into retirement from politics. It will be good for the party and the country.

    dishum Thursday, 20 September 2012 01:48 PM

    Please sit as an independent and shut up. It will be a blessing for the country.

    Andrew Pitugala Friday, 21 September 2012 05:15 AM

    Excellent. Good oportunity to get rid of the criminals and un educated. Replace them with educated and respectable persons.

    Upul Thursday, 20 September 2012 02:28 PM

    Sir, people like you can't be independent even though you sit in a different place in the council. Our politicians rarely have independent voice and country will not be like this if they had.

    Kusuman Thursday, 20 September 2012 02:37 PM

    Why you have failed to obtain more votes than Ranjith? Either people had fed-up with you or he has shown his capability than everyone? If majority says you are not the man, you should accept the reality. Don’t be another follower of Mangala Samaraweera. Though you believe 130 members will follow you but once you failed they will not follow you.

    What a fantastic piece of news! Do it, Berty!!

    "The day after the election, Berty Premalal Dissanayake will be the Chief Minister of the North Central Province. There is no doubt about that and no one can change it,” Mr. Dissanayake said adding that, “there are some media reports about the next Chief Minister, but no one should care about those reports, as I will be the Chief Minister forever.”
    Berty,those were your words in July.NOW WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO SAY?????

    Matalan Friday, 21 September 2012 06:11 AM

    Prepared to even destroy a fellow party member for what? - to serve people or plunder our country to high heaven? Thuggery reigns supreme, in the Wonder of Asia!

    Cobbler Thursday, 20 September 2012 08:16 AM

    Very good. Can you get all the politicians to resign.
    Then this country will be very beautiful and prosperous.

    Another black sheep in the government and a mongoloid product of the preferential voting system and the executive presidency

    gonsal Thursday, 20 September 2012 04:14 PM

    We believe your words and we want all your stooges to resign. The Hon President will hold elections and win again with a 90%majority.

    Gamini Thursday, 20 September 2012 05:30 PM

    Mr Berty cant read these things in English.You all have to use filth to make him understand.

    Rata Kanna Thursday, 20 September 2012 05:40 PM

    Once the politicians get ministerial posts and get the taste of it, they never let it go not for the sake of people but for their own greed even prepared to die to keep it. Specially is Sri Lanka.

    ARAFATH Thursday, 20 September 2012 09:23 AM

    acid test for the government.lets see how it is going to work.

    Rajarata man Thursday, 20 September 2012 06:09 PM

    P S Perera Thursday, 20 September 2012 10:24 AM

    Why do you even expect that you will be appointed as CM? Who ever got more preferences would be appointed as CM. That’s why an election was held. Leadership is not an eternal thing. What you are supposed to do is supporting your new CM. swallow your pride Berty. Be humble to accept your loss. Work hard for 4 years and get people’s vote and become next CM. That’s the way isn’t it?

    peeda mossa Thursday, 20 September 2012 10:36 AM

    Suckers galore ! In fact a bunch of 10 dozen plus 1.

    sirisena Thursday, 20 September 2012 10:36 AM

    Hi Berty, is it to strengthen the hands of the President and on behalf of the country?

    s.m.Hafeel Thursday, 20 September 2012 10:42 AM

    why dont you give a chance to Mr.Ranjith
