MP Ranjan Ramanayake might get the ticket to contest the general election under the Samagi Jana Balawegaya as he has not done anything wrong other than recording phone conversations unethically, MP Hirunika Premachandra said yesterday. 

Responding to a question raised by journalists at a press conference, she said Ranjan had not been charged with corruption or any other offence. 

“In such circumstances, I don’t think he would be denied nominations.’ she said.

“His gossip talk over the phone does not matter to anyone as all that was part of his personal life” she added.   Asked whether she was happy about court’s decision to grant Mr. Ramanayake bail, the MP said “Why should I be happy about Mr. Ramanayake granted bail as it is he who should be happy since he has been able to come out of jail” 
Ms. Premachandra said.

    Hirunika does not definitely fit to be in parliament as a people's representative . She seems to be too occupied with Ranjan Ramanaya case trying to white wash him. She is either occupied with Duminda with hate accusing him with all sort of unproven allegations .!! Don't send he r to next parliament

    A great lady who stands for what is right and uphold justice . I think she is fit to be in Parliament to represent women.
