United National Party (UNP) Treasurer Senarath Kapukotuwa resigned from his post today in order to pave the way for party reforms.

Mr. Kapukotuwa told Daily Mirror that he handed over the resignation letter to party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe today morning.

"I decided to resign from the post to clear the way for effective reforms of the party,” he said. Asked whether the party leader accepted the resignation, he said he is not aware whether it had been accepted or not but hoped that it will be accepted.

“I have done the same in 2004 when I was the general Secretary of the party at that time and I have done the same this time as well for the betterment of the party,” he added.

Meanwhile the United National Party (UNP) national organiser Daya Gamage had informed party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe that he was willing to resign from his post if a suitable replacement was found. (Yohan Perera)

    You are correct. He is the right & a able person who can take up any challenge, but he cannot work with fools.

    Yes true, may be these guys are little bit wise, knowing the down-fall of their Damn Master, they have taken the right decision.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 05 October 2013 02:13 AM

    Yes Gentlemen, Ranil should follow your footsteps now. Either he should resign with respect or you guys will have to push him out by his neck.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 05 October 2013 02:11 AM

    When the crooks goes out, automatically the Big Man will have to go home soon. Good sign for Sajith's future.

    Well done Mr.gamage.It must goes to Ravi or imthiyas.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 05 October 2013 02:06 AM

    Let all these rotten eggs including RW be thrown away and a bright future under the Leadership of Sajith should arise soon. (Public Request)

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 05 October 2013 02:02 AM

    Finally only Ranil will remain in the UNP by the time Sajith's - Newly formed UNP will prosper and victorious.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 05 October 2013 02:01 AM

    Wise thinking, he knew he will be in danger soon, if he is with Ranil. God saved him.

    First of all, the party leader should resign from the post. Otherwise, nothing will change for the better.
