United National Party (UNP) Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa said today the party had decided to field UNP National Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe as its candidate at the forthcoming presidential election and there was no argument about that.

 

“There is no point in arguing about who is going to contest at the next presidential election from the UNP because the party has taken a decision to field Mr. Wickremesinghe as its candidate,” Mr. Premadasa said.

 

He said Mr. Wickremesinghe was committed to ending this corrupt regime, which is taking this country towards destruction.


Mr. Premadasa said it was only a UNP government that could ensure the rights of the working people.

 

“This government is shattering the hopes of the working people from election to election and from budget to budget. We will stop blatant corruption and frauds in the state service,” he told the 19th Annual General meeting of the National Railway Services Union.

 

He said the unions affiliated to the UNP were revealing the attempts by the Government to provide substandard services to the people such as substandard medicine and power stations.

 

Mr. Premadasa said government was accusing the UNP of supporting LTTE but it was the Government that was doing so by giving the contract to repair the high commissioner’s official residence in Geneva to a LTTE company.(Darshana Sanjeewa and Ajith Siriwardana)

    If the people have any sense they know that we need a regime change.With Sajith and all the others backing Ranil it will be good.Sajith has his place indue course and Ranil knows that.He needs a PR person like Sajith-like JR needed his father to bring about a new feeling and taking forward the programmes which are in place which are good for the people.RANIL UNLIKE SOME OTHERS WILL NOT OPPOSE FOR THE SAKE OF OPPOSING.IF HE THINKS IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS GOOD FOR THE PEOPLE HE WILL LEAVE IT ALONE.THAT IS WHY HE IS DIFFERENT.MOST OF THE PROGRAMMES IMPLEMENTED BY THIS GOV. ARE ONES INITIATED BY THE UNP,JR,PREMADASA RANILLALITH GAMINI AND CO.THE GROUP HAVE TO MAKE THEMSELVES FELT AMONG THE PEOPLE GOOD LUCK UNP!!!

    Sajith wants Ranil to contest and loose. Karu should be the common candidate.

    They are betting on a lame horse.

    sajith is a very selfish power hungry politician!! i hope ranil wins and the country never sees the day sajith is a president... I hope we are not so unfortunate to the point of having another gamey bayya as a president!!!

    To win the Presidential election, it is Karu J and no body else. Sajith is sadly mistaken.
