Ranjan disapproves UNPers attending Rohitha's wedding

State Minister Ranjan Ramanayake today found fault with UNPers who attended the wedding of former President’s son Rohitha Rajapaksa last week.

“I feel that those who attended the wedding have let down the ordinary UNPers. Ordinary UNPers kept vigil at Temple Trees during the political crisis right from October 26 last year. However associating with some of those who created the crisis is wrong and is an act which let down the ordinary party members,” Mr. Ramanayake told journalists after attending courts last morning.

However Mr. Ramanayake said he would not find fault with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe attending the wedding as he is the Prime Minister for the whole country. Also Mr Ramanayake said it was alright for the Speaker to attend as he is the head of Parliament who looks into the affairs of all 225 MPs. However he said he would not approve the other MPs from the UNP attending the wedding.

“When UNP MPs including those who held ministerial portfolios like Law and Order attends a function of those whom they accused of corruption, the public might feel that both parties were trying to get into a deal with each other,” he said.

Mr. Ramanayake commended the decision of UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa not to attend the wedding. “I knew from Mr Premadasa that he was invited. However he questioned whether he should attend the wedding of those who had harassed his supporters in Hambantota,” Mr. Ramanayake said. (Yohan Perera)

    SL politics is the greatest scam ever played. We the citizen are getting fooled every day, in which these fat-cats make money and steal away everything from this country until nothing remains.

    Ramanayake's attitude indicates a low level of thinking which is the problem with politicians unable to not politicise every action, even attending a wedding.

    arjayewardene Tuesday, 29 January 2019 11:16 AM

    Agreed! maybe they felt they would attend of PM was doing so? Besides, why not hv a good time on taxpayers a/c?

    However Mr. Ramanayake said he would not find fault with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe attending the wedding as he is the Prime Minister for the whole country.Did PM attend all the weddings ?

    Without prejudice, it is quite ok for anyone to attend this wedding upon invitation.It was not a poltical event, hence politics should not be diluted with it. Its the goodwille of the invitee to honor and respct the invitor whoever it may be. Lets not look at all things with malice !

    Lakshman Tuesday, 29 January 2019 02:26 PM

    This is what happened when you have a """"" BIRD BRAIN """" It is a wedding...why involve politics...GO HOME AND EAT YOUR HEART OUT.

    Outside.... must be Friends. See the Lawyers.

    Martin Milton Tuesday, 29 January 2019 05:21 PM

    It is even more of an utter disgrace for the parents of the couple who invited all these no good politicians from UNP and any other suspect party to associate with them at an auspicious occasion such as this. A very obscure and shameful exercise..MM

    Citizen Tuesday, 29 January 2019 07:24 PM

    Talking like a fool and again displaying his stupidity in public.

    Dr.Rukmal seneviratne Tuesday, 29 January 2019 08:51 PM

    I agree with Mr.Ramanayaka. RW is letting down the ordinary citizens of this country who stood by him during the political crisis in October last year.Has he forgotten all the insults hurled at him by MR,s camp?Has he no shame or is it because they are all thick as thieves behind the scenes?

    Ghost Wednesday, 30 January 2019 06:50 AM

    I suppose he wasn't invited!!!
