SLPP to meet its end days? New party in formation!


The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) the Ruling Party in Sri Lanka is being torn apart against the current crisis situation in the country, political sources disclosed. The members of the Rajapaksa family, who were together against all odds, have also split due to various reasons, according to sources.

Not very long ago, the minor parties representing the government led by Wimal Weerawansa, Udaya Gammanpila and Vasudewa Nanayakkara left and another MP group including Anura Priyadarshana Yapa and Nimal Lanza became independent. Fueling the crisis, MPs including Dallas Alahapperuma and Channa Jayasumana formed a separate group and they had sent a letter to President Rajapaksa yesterday urging him to step down.

Meanwhile, Ruling Party MPs including Prasanna Ranatunga, Keheliya Rambukwella and Mahindananda Aluthgamage are holding discussions to form another political movement and have already selected one of the registered parties at the Election Commission, sources told LNW.

The said group has also discussed at length whether the Rajapaksas should be welcomed to the party, and many members are of the opinion that no Rajapaksa other than Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Shasheendra Rajapaksa should be allowed to join, sources added.

However, it is very unlikely that Gotabaya Rajapaksa will ever be in the political arena again following the historic opposition grown from the end of the public. Rajapaksa has already confirmed that he will announce his resignation on July 13 and chances are high that he will leave for the United States thereafter.
