The letter circulated among the party members on the eve of the former lokka’s birthday put paid to all chances for reconciliation.”

“Who was really behind that warning letter, machang?” another Betel leaf senior asked.

“It was that Rajarata man who messed up the affair,” said the member from the Colombo area, but he did not name him.
