UNP will become an alternative political force that would replace the present government before long, its Deputy Leader Ruwan Wijewardene said over the weekend.

Addressing a UNP meeting in Kegalle, Mr. Wijewardene said his party would be reorganised in both national and constituency level in two years’ time realise this goal.

Mr. Dudley Senanayake had only Rs.300 in his bank account when he died. However, today’s politicians are right opposite as they are always looking to rob public funds

“It seems that people want UNP to be represented in Parliament. This is why they always ask as to who would go to Parliament from the UNP through the national list. They want an alternative political force. We will become such a force in two years’ time. We have already organised our party to realise this goal,” he said. “Kegalle is not a new place for me. My mother’s people hail from this area. The Late D. S. Senanayake and Late Dudley Senanayake who represented Dedigama some time back are my relatives. The Senanayake’s never robbed public funds but donated their private funds to the people. Mr. Dudley Senanayake had only Rs.300 in his bank account when he died. However, today’s politicians are right opposite as they are always looking to rob public funds. This country needs another a political culture similar to Senanayake era,” he added.

Mr. Wijewardene said many businesses will have to be closed down next year given the economic downturn. (YOHAN PERERA)

    UNP needs to drop their liberal agenda if they like to have any chance in Sri Lankan politics

    joshua Monday, 07 December 2020 09:07 AM

    With Ranil at the helm with one leg with Rajapakshe?

    Dennis Reeves Monday, 07 December 2020 09:24 AM

    No... never young man, Ranil destroyed the prestigious party and UNP is dead. Don't strain too much and break your head, be safe.

    Tilak Rodrigo .R Monday, 07 December 2020 09:27 AM

    Hay listen to me brother, join with either Gota or Sajith and work with loyalty, then sometimes, God will forgive you guys for all your wrong doings.

    Neville Monday, 07 December 2020 09:36 AM

    Yes. That is why stalwarts like Naveen and Arjuna are leaving the party to join SJB.

    harshass Monday, 07 December 2020 10:00 AM

    Nonsence. You have only one seat in parliament and that too is vacant.

    Rodrigo Monday, 07 December 2020 10:00 AM

    The UNP will never come back to power again untill they shed their caste name politics be humble towards the people and set aside kings styke rule from family to family listen to the people

    Vadivelu Yogaratnam Monday, 07 December 2020 01:58 PM

    With Ranil still in the party don't even dream about that, kick him out now before it's too late otherwise he will destroy everyone in the party.

    Ronnie Bugger Monday, 07 December 2020 02:40 PM

    Alternate means 'playing second fiddle'. UNP, total failure, so keep on fiddling.

    june macapagal Monday, 07 December 2020 02:56 PM

    Ranil should be removed and made to retire. only then the UNP will have a chance or else it will be a dead party.

    Ram Monday, 07 December 2020 02:58 PM

    From when?

    Man Monday, 07 December 2020 03:03 PM

    How can you praise Mr. Dudly when Ruwan's ancestors like JR, chased out, Mr. Rukman, though wanted him back, recently? That's why UNP got no MP, for not being fair and democratic.

    Bertram Fernandopulle Monday, 07 December 2020 03:05 PM

    Heh Heh an alternative force of very very teeny tiny minuscule Force

    Vasaliya Monday, 07 December 2020 03:09 PM

    Are you guys trying to make Namal the president this time? Your king deal maker Ranil must be cooking a recipe to make namal president....

    Makanal Tuesday, 08 December 2020 08:26 AM

    Wait till people forget the Central Bank episode.
