UNP MP Ravi Karunanayake today said a handful of people who opposed his appointment as the Assistant Leader of the party is something which has no significance.
“Only one or two persons have opposed my appointment as the Assistant Leader. Therefore, it is not worth making any comment on it,” Mr. Karunanayake told the Daily Mirror especially reacting to former Minister Joseph Michael Perera who resigned from the UNP working committee opposing the party’s decision to appoint Mr. Karunanayake to the Assistant Leader’s post.
“This is nothing but personal rivalries,” he added. (Yohan Perera)
Wind starts slowly. Wait and you will face the hurricane! better depart before that!

And if there is no hurricane, we all can prepare to suffer under Mahinda for 5 yrs or longer. I never realised Ranil, Sajith, Harin et al could be such fools to offer this job to Ravi.

Ravi Do you agree with me that alleged fraudsters should not hold public office? The Grand Old Party had decent and honest leaders in the past who did not behave in a disgraceful and dishonest manner.I do not know how Ranil approve these appointments.Remember "Credibility is like virginity. You only lose it once."The alleged fraudsters in high places will definitely destroy the UNP beyond repair.
Sam aiyar Thursday, 26 April 2018 09:37 PM
Ahmmm sir Could you kindly name those honest and decent leaders of past...Either you are living in lala land or just being nostalgic about decent under the radar corruption remember the by gone days there was no social media no cell phones etc..

Tiger is involved in a bond scam and after PENTHOUSES . The cat is after male rats .

GH Thursday, 26 April 2018 11:07 PM
No! this is not a personal rivalry. The fact is that Mr. Joseph Michael Perera knows the value of the party and it should be demolished by appointing a day-time robber like you to an assistant leader of UNP that was built by DSS, DS
Charles Thursday, 26 April 2018 11:17 PM
Ravi if you have principles you should resign from all posts until you are cleared officially by the Bribery department
Susantha Thursday, 26 April 2018 11:20 PM
Ravi was afraid of contesting From Kotte and shifted to Colombo North, a UNP stronghold. He has no leadership qualities.
VJ Thursday, 26 April 2018 11:24 PM
Everyone else except you is convinced that you are a thorn in the party. UNP could still be salvaged if you leave now.
Sinhabahu Thursday, 26 April 2018 11:25 PM
Talking about this kind is itself a waste of time!
CITIZEN Thursday, 26 April 2018 11:31 PM
It is significant! You are the "Death Knell" to the Party! We cannot understand why the Leader of UNP does not understand this. Unfortunately, he is tarnishing his own name by doing this stupid and unwise thing!!!
Madura Senevirante Friday, 27 April 2018 08:09 AM
Such a honorable party has come down to so low level by appointing a man accused of corruption as the deputy leader??? this is an insult to great leaders of the UNP.UNP will never recover with these appointments.RK should be sacked from the party
Suren Friday, 27 April 2018 08:30 AM
We people know more about you , you can use money get in to power but you will punish by people next election
Could someone please clarify the difference between Deputy Leader and Assistant Leader? Thank you.
Sunil Friday, 27 April 2018 12:25 PM
We have had enough of stupid talk from this mega crook. Send him and his leader to their political graveyards as soon as possible.
ET Friday, 27 April 2018 01:42 PM
We in Colombo district will show him the door in 2020, only 18 months away. Till then Ravi enjoy....
