A crucial meeting of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Central Committee (CC) is due to be held today at President’s House at Mahagamasekara Mawatha in Colombo under the patronage of the President Maithripala Sirisena.

Party's General Secretary Minister Duminda Dissanayake said that the SLFP would take several decisive political decisions at this meeting.

Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera said that a final decision with regards to the no faith motions against the 16 SLFP Ministers who voted in favour of the motion against the Prime Minister that were handed over to the Speaker would also be taken during this crucial meeting.

He said, "These no faith-motions have been handed over to belittle us. We cannot let this happen as we have backbones to stand up to such tactics.”

He said that these no-faith motions had been the work of a group of junior UNPers who have little or no knowledge about politics. He said these novice parliamentarians do not know how the politics works in the country and warned that they would not allow their political futures to be buried along with the UNP.

    Junior UNPers are well aware of the dirty and selfish politics of SLFPers

    Warnings are forms of scares, be happy that there wont be such no motions against pathethic politicans like the 16 of them.

    Look at the plank in your own eye SLFP rebels, before you see the pin in the others' eyes.

    Thankfully these young UNP MPs have gotten not yet the political knowledge of the 16 old ministers who are corrupt, criminal, treacherous and scheming and who do politics only for selfish reasons. These young politicians who have handed over the motion against the 16 crooks to the speaker should be encouraged and given more influence.

    If they had back bones they should have resigned from the portfolios they hold. Specially when they voted saying that they have no faith on the PM. If it’s the same party of the PM it will be a different story cos they have the right to fight for the party and the leadership. But when you are not in the same party why should you stay? Power greedy???

    Dayasiri Jayasakera is a sore loser. He will never be happy anywhere.

    Yes, these juniors doesn't know Sri Lankan politics, they are too honest, you teach them how to jump from one party to another when opportunity comes.

    The SLFP cannot stand on its own feet, they need a strong foundation and a solid leader, hence MR, GR has to be with them if not there is no match to take on which ever party that challenges it.
