Former Sports Minister Faizer Mustapha is reportedly making a huge effort to join the government. But almost all UNP members including S.M. Marikkar and Mujibar Rahuman have opposed it.
They had stated that they have not forgotten how Faizer Mustapha supported the President’s plot to destroy the Yahapalana government.
They had further emphasized that the UNF does not need followers of the President and Mahinda Rajapaksa.
It is reported that Faizer Mutapha is attempting to join the government through businessmen who are close to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and are currently aboard.
One of the businessmen, who is aware of the fact that Faizer Mustapha cannot achieve his target, had sent him a message.
According to internal sources, the aforementioned businessman had told Faizer Mustapha: “Your father was a famous lawyer. But you destroyed his name. I cannot talk with Ranil for you.”
