UNP MP Karu Jayasuriya who lost his deputy leader post of in the party at Monday’s secret ballot has decided to vacate his office room in the parliamentary complex today, sources close to him said today.
Mr. Jayasuriya was given this room to be used in his administrative work. However, after he lost his post of deputy leader on Monday, he has decided to leave it. His staff attached to the office packed his belongings so he could vacate the office room.
Also, with the defeat at the secret ballot, Mr. Jayasuriya ceases to be a member of the working committee of the party. He represented the working committee by virtue of office as an office bearer. (Kelum Bandara)
72 idiots vote will not help to get elected as president of sri lanka. it is the people of sri lanka will elect president. Ranil's captancy is already in stake in the eyes of the voters. He can no longer convince the masses.

Karu is a good man. But, he could not realize the tactics of Premadasa. He is devastated by himself. I feel sorry for him. He should correct his mistakes and work with Ranil now. Hope Ranil will give you a chance. You should come as the deputy leader rather than Premadasa. He is a real thug.
sujeewa Tuesday, 20 December 2011 11:25 AM
As always Ranil will protect you Mr.Karu. U will understand about him one day. He is pure Leader. unforchunatly you never do that....how sad....

True leaders will emerge. So one day people will need you. Stay alive till that moment arises. There are only few in politics in your caliber.

I only thought he had poor capabilities of frog jumping, but now I also know that he is poor back stabber too.

Rajapaksa Kingdom is already fromed and it is in place in the country since Chandrika left the offcie. The Democracy in the country has been in the dustbin from the day one of SF arrest.
unp man Tuesday, 20 December 2011 12:22 PM
it is a secret ballot. Ranil won. Someone has to lose. Anyway, UNP WC is not real representation of public view. Mr. Karu, you live in our hearts. Be more strong and try to bring UNP back to power
jeeva Tuesday, 20 December 2011 12:24 PM
karu you are old now.. stop dreaming be come a leader....

A real gentleman does not hold on to things which do not belong to him.

Who appointed the working committee? RW. So what result do you expect?
Appuhamy Tuesday, 20 December 2011 12:31 PM
it is the working committee of UNP appointed by Ranil says they need Ranil. but what did voters say to the world defeat after defeat. these 72 idiots did not realize that fact
Appuhamy Tuesday, 20 December 2011 12:35 PM
President Mahinda Rajapakse must be happy to get elected Ranil as leader. because next election surely Mahinda can win
Nodrog Tuesday, 20 December 2011 12:49 PM
regardless of whether his actions were right or wrong, Karu has kept his dignity and our respect.
Rukshana Tuesday, 20 December 2011 01:00 PM

Sajith must be laughing all the way at this fool.

A sorry situation, wish things were different.
Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 20 December 2011 11:06 AM
A disastrous misadventure as a result of giving into machinations of ambitious juniors who used him as a cat's paw. This is the point of no return for Karu.
Bikka Tuesday, 20 December 2011 11:01 AM
I hope you learn a lesson. First by crossing over to opposition then second by thinking althoug you have been taken back to UNP and given deputy leadership that people will respect you as before (cross over).
Ahamed Tuesday, 20 December 2011 11:03 AM
time to start a new party to head the fight against the regime..
kondebendapucheena Tuesday, 20 December 2011 10:42 AM

Real Quality of a Real Leader

Honest and honorable person.

to much drama for Karu in the recent past ,good that he now has time to take a rest. This might be the last time he makes the Headlines on a news paper.
Kamalanath Tuesday, 20 December 2011 10:27 AM
It's very tragic to keep a senior balanced minded person out of lime light. The way things are happening, UNP will become a party for the name sake. As a result this country will loose it's democracy and allow the formation of the Rajapakse kingdom.
perumal Tuesday, 20 December 2011 10:19 AM
Just see how Sajith's brain works. He is the son of Premadasa, no less. Now Sajith has no equal in his Deputy's position. Only one step to climb and he has enough time.
