UNP WC decides to attack Dilan, Susil & Dayasiri, instead of president

The UNP working committee that met yesterday (17) decided that they should not criticize the president publicly any more. It discussed at length what transpired at the cabinet meeting yesterday. It was highlighted that unnecessary trouble would be created if the government remains divided as the SLFP and the UNP and criticize each other.


Instead of the president, they decided to criticize ministers Dayasiri Jayasekara, Susil Premajayantha and state minister Dilan Perera, especially Perera, as they have been highly critical of the UNP leadership for a long time.

The two parties have been criticizing each other over the CB bond issue, which is likely to feature at the LG polls campaign platform as well.

The president threw away cabinet papers and stormed out of the cabinet meeting after questioning if this government could continue any further. Rajitha Senaratne mediated and got him back at the meeting.
