UNP MP Harin Fernando told a news conference a short while ago that nearly 20 government MPs including senior ministers are currently in discussion with the party and predicted there would be many activities in the coming year.

Meanwhile he also said that the inclusion of MP Sanath Jayasuriya in Sri Lanka’s squad for next year’s World Cup was a sign of politicization of the cricket team (YP)

    GOD bless those 20 MPs

    Retired Sri Lankan Wednesday, 22 December 2010 12:25 PM

    This is a good move to strengthen the opposition and keep the government on its toes.

    local boy Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:34 AM

    inclusion of MP uncle Jayasuriya in Sri Lanka’s squad will never create a problem to local boys, but playing would be !!

    SWF Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:35 AM

    This is why they say daytime resting not good. Lots of day dreams..!

    padma Thursday, 23 December 2010 03:13 AM

    We hope……. but impossible

    Jumbuli Jumba Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:40 AM

    Probably those 20 will be eyeing for the leadership!

    choppe Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:40 AM

    ganeshen Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:41 AM

    sherlock holmes Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:46 AM

    maybe its those non-performers who are seeking refuge in the Greener pastures

    ara Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:42 AM

    20 MPs disappointed because they are not included in the world cup squad..

    king kong Thursday, 23 December 2010 11:35 AM

    Its a load of rubbish... why dont you give the names of the 20 so called senior MP.

    strawberry Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:40 AM

    They are only talking but they arent walking!

    AyomiD Wednesday, 22 December 2010 01:04 PM

    Brave decision All the best people :-).

    Gayan Samarasekara Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:40 AM

    So Sanath Jayasooriya is not there in the 20 MP list :) Senior ministers can't be as foolish as this fellow thinks. At least try to get Paba back :)

    Fazlan Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:53 AM

    Will they join with Ranil or Sajith ???

    AyomiD Wednesday, 22 December 2010 01:05 PM

    A Brave decision …All the best and God Bless them :-).

    It is only a dream for all the UNP Babies

    Asanka Wednesday, 22 December 2010 07:54 AM

    Upul Karu Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:05 AM

    Neomal Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:09 AM

    Let the games begin!

    adhil Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:11 AM

    thank god... i think those mps have realized that they are meerly puppets, in the rajapakse regime,in the unp they can truly find fairness

    Roshan Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:11 AM

    It is not the 20 Govt MPs wanted to have discussion, it Mr. Harin intitial application to join the Govt.

    ACG Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:11 AM

    May be they didn't get what they wanted from the govt and they are planning to join UNP. Just say "NO" to them. Frogs, they only know to jump, jump, and jump.

    Go-Rilla Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:11 AM

    Discussing what?? Is it about the development that are taking place in the country?? A very vague statement.....

    shihan Wednesday, 22 December 2010 01:48 PM

    Brave decision

    kassa Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:18 AM

    Day Dream.

    Nilantha Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:18 AM

    It's day dream...!! Funny.

    Sebu Thursday, 23 December 2010 04:25 AM

    Yes, it is a timely need today to establish democracy in the country.

    micky Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:15 AM

    this is very common statement. Time to time UNP come up with this kind of a statement. But nothing happens.

    Devide Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:17 AM

    Do you know how many of them talking with Govenment?

    Sebu Thursday, 23 December 2010 04:27 AM

    Open eyes and search for the democracy....

    Enlightened Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:18 AM

    How much is the offer for each head?

    M.M.usoof Thursday, 23 December 2010 01:00 PM

    these stories we have been hearing since 2 years , but finally when it comes to reals , its the elephants who jump on to the other side......white lie...

    Bluff Bluff Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:19 AM

    Have you included Paba also?

    immysl Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:26 AM

    UNP from recent times have started saying this story many a time. But, as we saw day after day, it was only mere talk. So most probably, this is just another talk given by an UNP MP.

    NKARUNATHILLEKE Wednesday, 22 December 2010 03:04 PM

    Dear MP, are you daydreaming? Or reading something daydreampt by RANIL and RAVI? Poor UNP is no more!

    kalakanniya Wednesday, 22 December 2010 08:43 AM

    is mr,Ranil also included in that 20

    channa Thursday, 23 December 2010 02:40 PM

    Before establishing Democracy in country....Establish Democracy in UNP..

    channa Thursday, 23 December 2010 02:41 PM

    When ? In another 20 years time?

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Thursday, 23 December 2010 02:37 PM

    Day dreaming

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Thursday, 23 December 2010 02:45 PM

    EVEN IF 100 GOES MR WILL BE STABLE

    thushi Wednesday, 22 December 2010 09:24 AM

    don't insult the right honorable Sanath Jayasuriya. Just as Ranils is the lifetime opposition leader Sanath should be in the World Cup squad for his lifetime.

    Hareesz Wednesday, 22 December 2010 09:24 AM

    rumi Friday, 24 December 2010 11:58 AM

    it is not strange. now many ministers in MR cabinet are from UNP. without UNP members no one can rule sri lanka

    welcome 20 MP but MR is still stronger.

    Koomi Wednesday, 22 December 2010 09:52 AM

    That's gr8 news

    Mandy Wednesday, 22 December 2010 10:01 AM

    Super news. Sanath's news was always known. He might collapse after the first match. I think the new UNP government is in the horizon. Hurrah!

    yuri Wednesday, 22 December 2010 10:28 AM

    If the 20 worked out the rest does not need much of the time. hope the new year bring Future to this Island.

    gishan Wednesday, 22 December 2010 10:24 AM
