Former minister Basil Rajapaksa, who spearheads the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), ruled out the possibility of accommodating the members of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) as a distinct political group under the SLPP banner.

However, he said the MPs who quit the government could join the SLPP-led alliance as individual members rather than as a separate political group.

“It is not possible for us to allow them to stay within the SLPP as a separate political group. Instead, they can join hands with us as individual members,” he said. (Kelum Bandara)

    IS SLPP REALLY NECESSARY OTHER THAN TO SUPPORT MR AND THE RAJAPAKSHAS WHO DO WANT TO WORK WITH MS AND CBK

    jeffaloy Saturday, 16 June 2018 03:23 PM

    I would like to know whether these SLFP members are now supporting the SLPP resigned or given up there SLFP membership, or are they all fooling the public. How can you being a member of the SLFP go against the party and support the SLPP ? Can anyone please clarify this issue.

    This is good for 16 members of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna who can sign agreement for that their owned conditions to clean party leaders household goods without salary.

    Your future depends on your past and present. Hence think of your past and see whether anyone will want to join you.

    Saradiel Saturday, 16 June 2018 05:13 PM

    It's a matter of time for some of you to be exposed as criminals. You can dance till then. Hope that the masses will teach you guys a good lesson and protect the good old SLFP.

    Mevan Saturday, 16 June 2018 05:37 PM

    Yes if the SLFPers have the need to protect the crooks and swindlers of Rajapaksas family, they can join the SLPP (Sri Lanka Paga Paksaya) and be the 'yes' men of Rajapaksas.

    Gamaya Saturday, 16 June 2018 06:10 PM

    Please Doc Basil you contest. That's the best bet for us to defeat you rouges for ever.

    Namal Perera Saturday, 16 June 2018 06:53 PM

    The Citizens should make sure that they do not allow the Political crooks to return to power.

    Baron Baaron Saturday, 16 June 2018 09:57 PM

    Mr. 10% is calling the shots. Yes, current SLFP looters can join former SLFP looters. "Birds of a feather flock together"

    chandra Saturday, 16 June 2018 10:02 PM

    BR is very correct. Be firmed. They will split the SLPP also.

    Akmon Sunday, 17 June 2018 06:41 AM

    Just recently one scholar had mentioned about very poor IQ in Sri Lanka. Quite evident looking at media these days.

    jani Sunday, 17 June 2018 10:13 AM
