DLF Leader Vasudeva Nanayakkara today challenged United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) General Secretary Susil Premajayantha to announce whether he supported the political cohabitation between President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.
Mr. Nanayakkara told Daily Mirror that the President, despite being the UPFA Chairman, was having a political powwow with the UNP leadership.
“In fact, we, as UPFA allies wanted an end to this cohabitation and form a formidable political force against the UNP. Mr. Premajayantha should announce whether he supports the political understanding between the President and the Prime Minister. Otherwise, he should announce whether he is against it,” he said.
Mr. Nanayakkara was responding to a statement issued by Mr. Premajayantha that parties not represented in the UPFA Executive Committee should refrain from making policy announcements. (Kelum Bandara)
You are correct, neither our President or PM does not want to mingle with rowdies with shanty back-ground. Vasu you get lost man.

Vasu is a dried wattaka and good for nothing. Can he face election and win a seat on his own without hanging onto UPFA.
Gehan Wijesinghe Tuesday, 02 June 2015 08:57 PM
We all know that Vasu and other "leftist " leaders ( who still believe that they are the leaders of those parties whereas they have no following in the party itself) came to power thanks to MR who wanted these bread crumbs to bolster his power to plunder the national wealth in the guise of development. Vasu, DEW, Tissa ( and also GL Pereis) are all but dead in their political careers. They have no more than a few weeks in this bliss and after that they could hope of a torried retired life where they would be looked down by people as mindless traitors who have betrayed the policies for personal gains

VASU WANTS THE PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT HE IS STILL IN PARLIAMENT AND NOT TO FORGET HIM AS HE MAY NOT BE THERE NEXT TERM TO UTTER NONSENSE

Vasu - we of your age, feel sorry for you as you were someone, working for the poor in the past, though you jumped from party to party in the left movement. You are now entitled to a pension and why not retire and enjoy the privileges of a retired politician. With your utterances, you are making it worst for the opposition.

This DRIED PUMPKIN knows he has come to the end of his political life. He has not achieved any thing for the down trodden people or brain washed masses who voted for his insignificant political entity. He enjoyed the comforts showered upon him by ALI BABA. Now without ALI BABA his path to a cushy life is completely shut. Let him utter vulgar words, because he is in his tail end of stinking political life. He very well know this is his last hurrah
Horri Jimonis Wednesday, 03 June 2015 06:00 AM
Vasu sorry man now you have to retire, you are too old.

Vasu is 76 and not 73. Consulting a psychiatrist is an urgent need for him as he is a paranoid now
Upul Gunawardena Wednesday, 03 June 2015 08:51 AM
Please leave politics respectfully without becoming a POLITICAL JOKER. There are better things to do at your age other than politics.
vt Wednesday, 03 June 2015 09:57 AM
Dear Mr Vasu We respected you as a genuine politician some decades ago. Now you are nowhere talking rubbish and rallying around the MR allies.. Really do not know what you are gaining -??Your whole body is shivering when talking.
upali Wednesday, 03 June 2015 10:50 AM
There is a political crisis in the country which is taken to the advantage of Tamil Diaspora and other interested NGOS.MR please come and save the country.

Make this dried pumpkin the Prime Minister candidate and Bandula the deputy. Then the new parliamentary words he uses can be explained by Bandula.
Thilina Wednesday, 03 June 2015 02:14 PM
According to him, this is purely a battle against UNP. Not something that benefits the betterment or the future of this country...
sacre blieu Wednesday, 03 June 2015 03:19 PM
Vasu seems to have lost his seeds for his premature evisceration in an august assembly. Our politicians have, by their behaviour , reduced this once hallowed forum of absorbing debate, to a dirt heap. The mountain of human refuse is an indication of how well we manage the system. Why has not anyone conferred a doctorate on him ,for modern style of usage of language and spicey phonetics., like they do now by the dozens for strange reasons.

There is no role for you in the UPFA Mr Vasudeva. Do you understand that ?
Rohini Tuesday, 02 June 2015 04:10 PM
Vasi or Vasi please , we have had enough of you. You have no chance in politics on your own but being you and greedy will hang on to anyone so that you cAn enjoy the perks. Your brain has stopped working now through age so,my advice to you is, just sit on an arm chair and enjoy the rest of your life.
ShootingStar Tuesday, 02 June 2015 04:13 PM
The President wants have nothing do with people who use abusive language or filth. Sorry you are a dried pumpkin and that name just suits you.
Giabao Tuesday, 02 June 2015 04:27 PM
On the contrary u need independently eccentric people like him in politics. Otherwise no one will dare to speak openly and freely.
hoodwinked Tuesday, 02 June 2015 04:35 PM
Here he goes again. His "Vasu Bus"utterance has no bounds. His old age coupled with loss of his ministerial portfolio has taken a toll on his mental faculty. May god cure him soon.

Punchi Putha Tuesday, 02 June 2015 05:10 PM
True dried wattaka no use for anything. Miniya (same word he used for PM) telling the president to chase the person who was the architect of strategy which brought him the presidency and work with the team conspired against his candidacy.
faramir Tuesday, 02 June 2015 05:18 PM
well the last time I checked, it was UNP that backed Maithree at the presidential elections and not SLFP or UPFA
