All UNPers should join Sajith-Wimal

3 April 2012 06:35 pm - 74     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Minister Wimal Weerawansa yesterday requested all UNP members to join its Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa who had fearlessly opposed any foreign intervention in the country.

Mr. Weeraswansa who was speaking during an adjournment debate on the Geneva resolution in Parliament yesterday said all sensible UNPers should join Mr. Premadasa to save themselves and the party. He made this point by stating that the UNP would suffer more setbacks in the future if it fails come up with a policy shift.

“The UNP opposed the war against terrorism during the final stages of the war and is still holding on to a similar stance on the national issue,” he pointed out.

The Minister explained that the UNP would suffer dire consequences if the party holds on to its present line of thinking with regard to the national issue and the international community. “You should follow your Deputy Leader who had opposed the UN and US without fear,” he told the UNP MPs who were engaged in a cross talk with him at that time.

He also threw a challenge at the UNP and requested the party to give Mr. Premadasa an opportunity to speak during the adjournment debate on the Geneva resolution which began in the House yesterday.

UNP MP Ajith P. Perera who responded to the minister later during the debate said his party would not hesitate to oppose the LTTE which was nothing but a cruel terrorist group. (KB & YP)

    No Laxana, this funny character knows only "Filth" in Sinhala. He cannot utter a word of English, how can he be the Foreign Minister without knowing kinder garden English.

    This is by far the best suggestion we have seen. If Sajith is such a potent candidate to lead this country, the MR govt will do well to have him also on board. Now, everyone can see the potency of the Premadasa prodigy.

    Wimal makes periodic utterances to let the public know that he is still alive and kicking. Who in S/L would take his advise is the question. He seems a standing joke with his antics.

    Kiss of death; poor Sajith

    singingfisher Wednesday, 04 April 2012 11:23 PM

    If Sajith follow suit like Wimal he will not get the support of Minorities.

    Nimal Wednesday, 04 April 2012 09:32 PM

    Wimal is a Joker. He does not have any political party. God bless Sri Lanka.

    He is not a puppet too, but a discarded Card-board in the Junk.

    Gayan Samarasekara Thursday, 05 April 2012 02:34 AM

    This shows us the schedule that Sajith P practices.. Sajith is the main headache for the UNP at the moment, as he created enormous troubles against the unity of the party, with uncle Jayasooriya, the man who went to strengthen the hands of MR with half of the elected MPs and returned alone, after getting hammered. All UNPers must condemn the behaviour of Sajith.

    Mahathma Gandhi once said-
    Allow the crows to fly above your head,but not to allow to hatch eggs.If he is alive today,it certainly applies to this man talking about nonsense.

    Please advise Mr. wimal to do good but not to be a insolent behaviour.

    A civilised country like ours should ignore request from Wimal, Champika, Mervyn and Douglas.

    This shows either Sagith has no knowledge of international afaires or he is following Wimal W to gain cheap publicity.

    Right. And you can become the Minister of Foreign Affairs.

    Catching fish in the troubled water..

    Labby Wednesday, 04 April 2012 09:50 AM

    Why doesn't Wimal invite Sajith to join the government? Or better still; let Wimal and Sajith team up and form their own party. One can go on hunger strike, and the other could get his mother to supply the meals, even to the onlookers.

    Imran Hussein Wednesday, 04 April 2012 08:58 AM

    In other words he says join the regime. Thanks for bringing Sajith's secret mission out in public. Ranil must be thrilled.

    Gentleman Wednesday, 04 April 2012 04:28 AM

    Sajith is UNP's "Wimal" who misguided and abandoned so many young leaders.

    AMG Wednesday, 04 April 2012 04:14 AM

    He is tired of being ignored by government so he need a new government with sajith !

    RW Wednesday, 04 April 2012 03:59 AM

    I think WW wants to strengthen somebody's hand.

    bandara Wednesday, 04 April 2012 03:40 AM

    So finally the cat is out of the bag. Now everyone should know the true conspirators behind all the destablising acts of Sajith.
    It is best for the UNP that Sajith joins Wimal's party.
