SJB MP Diana Gamage who is the owner of 'Ape Jathika Peramuna,' which later converted into Samagi Jana Balawegaya and had voted in favour of the 20th Amendment yesterday said she did not expect anything in return for voting with the government.

“Some say we have accepted money, but we have not taken a cent. I voted in favour as I feel that the country needs a powerful President. Why should we elect a president spending a huge amount of funds, tie him and throw him into a river,” she said.

Ms. Gamage said she would remain with the SJB though she went against the party’s stand on the 20th Amendment.

    Hesh Friday, 23 October 2020 08:24 AM

    Citizen Friday, 23 October 2020 08:36 AM

    Sorry. That cannot be done. She is one of the owners of the party.

    Citizen Friday, 23 October 2020 06:37 AM

    Sooner or rather her husband will get some powerful post in a government organization...

    Odin Friday, 23 October 2020 06:46 AM

    Although she knows that nothing is for free!!!

    Michael Ranasinghe Friday, 23 October 2020 06:53 AM

    This is what happens when money mongers are given national list seats .. they use it as a life time earning opportunity .. Lihini Fernando an educated and honourable lady should have been considered .. learnt the lesson I am sure

    Shehan Friday, 23 October 2020 06:59 AM

    SBJ with this mentaly you have no future. Only way to merge with UNP or set up a new political party in next ekection. Otherwise dig out your grave...

    kokuvilan Friday, 23 October 2020 06:59 AM

    please do not worry.you will be appointed as junior minister in charge of import and distribution of condoms and sanitary women underwear.

    Lumbini Friday, 23 October 2020 07:14 AM

    Must be removed from the party.

    Neville Gunasekara Friday, 23 October 2020 07:23 AM

    A national list MP of any party is a person who enjoys the highest confidence of the party and now?

    UniDon Friday, 23 October 2020 07:32 AM

    trojan woman!

    Antony Jude Friday, 23 October 2020 07:40 AM

    20A is not necessary to have a powerful President. You are not loyal to your party. Why don't you resign and join SLPP if you have backbone??

    Sim Friday, 23 October 2020 07:42 AM

    No principal

    Be Fair Friday, 23 October 2020 08:22 AM

    Is this Democracy at work?

    Leo Friday, 23 October 2020 08:26 AM

    Makes sense, what 19A did was spending 7 billion rupees to elect a president and then make him a ceremonial president. And ofcourse later blame him when jihadists attack.

    Basil Mark. Friday, 23 October 2020 08:27 AM

    Shame on you.loyalty is one of the virtues.

    Today’s Man Friday, 23 October 2020 08:31 AM

    Yeah right! But, little did you realize that you tied and threw the country into a river. What more can we expect from an immature and inexperienced politician like you?

    Et Tu Brute Friday, 23 October 2020 08:31 AM

    For your betrayal don't expect anything but the people's curses!!!!

    rohani samath Friday, 23 October 2020 08:38 AM

    Sack her immediately. She has burnt her own boat.

    Mokan Friday, 23 October 2020 08:38 AM

    What a traitor she is. Disgrace to motherhood

    Benjamin George Friday, 23 October 2020 08:40 AM

    She has been paid for everything what she owns, presumably by all parties concerned. So kick her out of SJB.

    Samson Friday, 23 October 2020 08:53 AM

    This person should be donated to the SLPP to strengthen the President. All this time President had no power or such people to support.

    Damith Friday, 23 October 2020 09:00 AM

    Will Sajith allow you to remain in the party? Don't try to play double games with SJB, they are not fools.

    Devendra William Friday, 23 October 2020 11:54 AM

    The money Talked. We never expected this from the Asst. Secretary of an opposition party. Shame! Shame!!

    Lala Friday, 23 October 2020 12:33 PM

    Send to the Hell with Wimale.

    Buddhist Friday, 23 October 2020 04:31 PM

    Kick her out Sajith.

    MN Friday, 23 October 2020 04:41 PM

    Why only all shouting her,what about other 7 SJB members, they too own seats by sjb ticket

    SAM Friday, 23 October 2020 05:04 PM
