Resignation not valid: SF

11 November 2012 12:13 pm - 40     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Democratic National Alliance (DNA) Leader Sarath Fonseka had officially informed DNA MPs Arjuna Ranatunga and Tiran Alles that their resignation from the Democratic Party was not valid as such a party had not been registered yet.

In his letters to the two MPs, the former Army Commander said he was shocked to see the resignation letters of the two MPs.

Mr. Fonskea had said the latter was appointed as a national list MP through the mandate given to DNA. “They are watchful of the next political decision which you about to take,” he had told Mr. Alles. Mr. Fonseka said had said the same in the letter to Mr. Ranatunga.

He had also told the two MPs to inform him whether they are going to remain with DNA or not.

    hks Sunday, 11 November 2012 01:03 PM

    Arjuna knows how to lead a cricket team and SF knows how to give leadership to the army...But unfortunately both of them do not know how to handle politics...!I this is a fact!!

    Banduka Sunday, 11 November 2012 01:21 PM

    Mandate given to a Party that is not even registered! This can happen only in a Banana republic.

    M N Nizam - Dubai Sunday, 11 November 2012 01:21 PM

    The party is not valid, the members not valid, the resignations not valid, what comes next......have to wait and see the outcome... there will be a reply guys...

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 11 November 2012 01:54 PM

    Learning the rope of "podi-tricks" slowly, but surely. What next ? Are the 2 MPs stranded now between the devil and the deep blue sea !

    Chandana Sunday, 11 November 2012 02:15 PM

    This is not Army SF. You cant keep people by force in civil society. You are dictator

    kondeybendapucheena Sunday, 11 November 2012 02:27 PM

    General Fonseka lost his political life since he enter to Politics,that is the truth,Now he is with leftovers of UNP,admit it

    Imran Hussein Sunday, 11 November 2012 12:42 PM

    Come on General Fonseka.
    Just leave them. and its better for you too join a good political leader and learn some politics. People respect you a lot as a solidier but not as a politician.

    GameKolla Sunday, 11 November 2012 03:40 PM

    Gen Fonseka..please keep away from those who change their colours according to their personal benefits.

    star Sunday, 11 November 2012 04:20 PM

    Join with Ranil if you need a future... Thats the only solution always for you and the country !

    Polkudu Chandrika Sunday, 11 November 2012 04:27 PM

    My God. SF is a very vindictive man. He still doesnt want to let go of Captain KuCool and Tyrant Alles. Hel wants to teach them a good lesson.

    Sudath Chandrakumara Sunday, 11 November 2012 04:45 PM

    Politics is politics. unfortunately these two persons don't know what politics is.One should be little bit educated to understand the politics. Experience itself is not enough

    Senaka Sunday, 11 November 2012 04:46 PM

    In politics you behave like a child. Day by day your popularity is fast going down. You should join Ranil if you dream a regime change. Otherwise you will have a same fate of JVP. Really sad Sir !

    Real Peace Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:02 PM

    SF, you can court marshall Arjuna for mutiny!

    krishna Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:22 PM

    Why then you are trying to form a common opposition with out having a party for you.Do you know where you go,General.

    Curious Sunday, 11 November 2012 10:44 PM

    So called DNA party is not a valid party because it is not registered. Seems the party is wasting their time for no reason.

    Kalu Sudda Sunday, 11 November 2012 10:58 PM

    All three of them should go and play marbles.
