Ranil falls prey to his own trap: Anura

JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake has said that UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe was caught in his own trap of allowing the Rajapaksa faction to flourish.

He told the “Intellectuals for Democracy” forum held at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute that the national government was the result of the power struggle of President Maithripala Sirisena and the then Prime Minister Wickremesinghe.

“The sole motive of the two leaders was to secure their hold on power and this helped the Rajapaksa faction to flourish," Mr. Dissanayake said.

He said Mr. Wickremesinghe thought his political victory would be sustained by fostering divisions within the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and this provided an opportunity for the Rajapaksa faction to strengthen itself.

“Mr. Wickremesinghe allowed the Rajapaksa faction to thrive so as to achieve his political objectives and became a prey of the political agenda he launched," Mr. Dissanayake said.

He said President Sirisena’s political agenda was to secure his faction in the government with the intention of becoming the President again in 2020 and ended up becoming a prisoner of his own agenda. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    100% correct. Even if UNF gets a lifeline in this game, Ranil will not change. He is not a proactive leader. And not a democratic leader either. Our fight is for what is right.

    Make sure Ranil too is not going to hold onto the power too. He too is a failed leader. Had he worked according to the mandate given by people this could have been averted.

    the clandestine understanding between RW

    Guy seems really worried Ranil lost his ground. Can't even imagine what country achieved under Rajapakse, virtually losing everything gained by Ranil and the country shows in the last election that they want RajapKse back.

    yes UNP thoght by splitting SLFP will mean easy road for UNP, little he knew that Maithree has barely any votes

    Very well said; all three (MR, MS, and RW) can be put in the same category, morally bankrupt and power hungry individuals who have to be prevented from running for office.

    Very true Anura.

    anura kumara dissanayake, Last week he pretend to be in favour of RW faction. Now he is playing a different game. First I thought he is genuinely working for the people, No I don't trust him at all. Why he left his followers in south and went to North to celebrate May day. ,All because he is targeting minority votes.

    Anura will pluck coconuts after 5th of Jan 2019

    S.P.RAMKUMAR Wednesday, 14 November 2018 07:03 PM

    Ranil did not take action against corruption, Srisena also part of the stake holder of Rajapakshe regime until he come out with his hidden agenda.
