Video: Karu willing to settle differences with Ranil

24 July 2013 05:08 pm - 19     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


If UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe had any differences of opinion, UNP senior member, Parliamentarian Karu Jayasuriya said he was ready to discuss them with the party leadership and patch things up, as his main concern was to bring the UNP back to power.

Commenting on media reports that Mr. Wickremesinghe had invited Mr. Jayasuriya and Mr. Sajith Premadasa for a cordial discussion, Mr. Jayasuriya said he was still to receive such an invitation but he was ready to discuss any issue with Mr. Wickremesinghe, as there was nothing they could not get sorted out for the good of the party.

He admitted that the lack of strong leadership in the main opposition UNP had given the government the opportunity to engage in anti-democratic and anti-people acts and added that an opportunity had come to defeat the government in the September PC polls by bringing all peace-loving and democratic forces under UNP.

    yes sir! quite right. much of your party time is spent on settling rifts & internal issues, so much so you dont find time to set out your strategies importantly plan yourself to face the election. ansolutely pathetic ?.

    Ranil Wickramasinghe is a vindictive person and he will never forgive anyone who has crossed his path.

    the joy Wednesday, 24 July 2013 06:01 PM

    now the panic has started. unfortunately nothing will go right until unless the the UNP leadership changes or the leader him self change for the good of the party.

    Upul Wednesday, 24 July 2013 05:50 PM

    There is a huge vacuum on the post of General secretary of UNP. That person has bigger role yet to understand.

    Porky Pig Wednesday, 24 July 2013 05:49 PM

    Porky Pig Wednesday, 24 July 2013 05:48 PM
