UNP Parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake told Daily Mirror that he would respond to all the allegations levelled  at him recently by Colombo Mayor A.J.M Muzammil, when the provincial council elections are over.

Mr. Karunanayake said that he could not answer on allegations on the Nomination Committee as it was not solely under him.

“If I carried out the entire procedure by myself then I need to answer. But when the outcome of the Nomination Committee was not what I expected, how can I answer to that? I have a backbone unlike him, and I have been with the party for two decades. Unlike him I have not betrayed the Party at any time. Not only Mrs. Muzammil but there were many others who were loyal party members who did not get nominations,” he said.

 I am studiously silent for one reason. That is we need not to waste time in dealing with the shamelessness of him. When the time comes I will answer all these with ample of circumstantial evidence

He said Mr. Muzammil did not have the courage to express his convictions against the party leader; instead he attempts to vent his anger by blaming others.

“Mr. Muzammil is giving oxygen to the government. He is carrying out the government’s agenda and he is giving oxygen to the government. He was not with the party right throughout and on the other hand I was with the party throughout. I have been committed to the party always. I have honest feelings for the party.  However, I am thankful to him for all these because his true colours came out after this fiasco. Many members said with their tongue in cheek that we needed to consider someone like him who could turn to be so unfaithful to the party. All these allegations and remarks have energised UNP,”

“The UNP is not a party which is having everybody’s family members in. I will answer all his allegations once the elections are over. I am studiously silent for one reason. That is we need not to waste time in dealing with the shamelessness of him. When the time comes I will answer all these with ample of circumstantial evidence,” he said.
