A scrap between two former Ministerial ones from Sabaragamuwa, a fair one and a dark one (in a literary sense) had created a sensational diversion at the Blue party convention held in Polonnaruwa.
The former Ministerial duo, incidentally close relatives, had fallen out over ‘manape’ at the recent general poll. However, the immediate cause for the verbal war between them was some issue related to the portfolios they were to get in the new government.
The dark one, generally mild-mannered and soft-spoken, had wanted to call it quits at the initial stage of the heated exchange, but the fair one, normally belligerent and garrulous, had harangued the dark one non-stop throwing restraint and modesty to the four winds.
The fair one was at her vocal best both in sound and fury when an irate former Blue party secretarial one warned her to shut up. This stern order had produced an immediate effect for the belligerent fair one had quietly returned to her seat.
