SLFP Crisis Worsens: Darley Road Headquarters Will Remain Closed Until President’s Return From Holiday

President Maithripala Sirisena has reportedly ordered to close down the Darley Road headquarters of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party until his return from Thailand next week, Colombo Telegraph learns.

The decision to close down the main party office follows a heated meeting between senior party officials and electorate organizers, on Saturday, over the current political situation.

The party sources said no one would be allowed to enter into the SLFP headquarters until the President’s return from his holiday. “It is a precautionary measure to avoid any unnecessary incident. We don’t want to take that risk in the President’s absence,” they added.

At the meeting chaired by SLFP General Secretary Prof. Rohana Lakshman Piyadasa, a group of SLFP organizers severely criticized President Maithripala Sirisena’s decision to form an alliance with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna. Senior party officials including S.B. Dissanayake, Nimal Siripala de Silva, Dayasiri Jayasekera and Duminda Dissanayake also attended the meeting.

The organizers who criticized the President’s actions lamented that the decision to contest elections together with the SLPP would uproot the SLFP at the grassroots level.

When asked about the meeting, SLFP stalwart former Minister S.B. Dissanayake said, “Media doesn’t have to know what was discussed at the meeting. It is not the media’s business.”

    This big mouth, clueless man lost all the respect and integrity in the world, after his violating the constitution on which he took solemn oath to protect it. We voted for him and lement that it’s time for him to leave that high office for he proved himself that he is not fit enough to hold on it.

      But SILVA I wonder he remains yet as the HEAD OF STATE how come ?
      .
      If this would have been the case in EU countries, people would hold on protests until the leader would resign by himself.
      .
      Now entire world is clear Prez Sirisena ‘s GAZETTE notification made on dissolution of parliament on the 10th Nov 2018 was unconstitutional in accordance with the SUPREME court verdict of the country
      .
      Meaning the PRESIDENT has VIOLATED country’s constitution not being able to abide with the oath given by him on the very day, he bcame president of this island nation thanks to the voters of 6.2 mio.
      .
      To me, he has no right to hold on to power today, he should BE out of that already yesterday.
      .
      Not even poor AFRICAN folks would tolerate the abusive ruling of incumbent Prez in SL, but so called 92% literary rate bearing – PEOPLE that have been boasting about their 2500 yrs culture – stay mum as if they are fed with KIRIMATI, not doing the due ????????? is that not because peoples are being made stupid for ever ?

          Entire society is made corrupted for their political survival: People themselves are not aware what they have been doing. Media Mudalalis would work closely with Rajakshes for their selfish gains. Rates and money have been place above the nation, by these highly abusive media (MAWBIMA; RIVIRA; ISLAND and all other local news papers and their close contacts should be screened).
          :
          And we perfeclty know how SIRASA covered BANK CAM but being biased to SIRISENA and Rajapakshes all along. Where on earth focus investigations based on 1% while burying the investigations based on 99% deliberately ( 990 Billions are lost according to SIRISENS info exposed to the world – following PM sworn in few days ago)
          .
          Just talk to various walks of people ( a cross section of people for your own data collection), not many would see it right … they all believe it was BOND scam brought by Ranil GOVT did the greater damage – but this is very curseful though all crimes should equally be investigated.
          .
          Rural folks – 70% are fed with WRONGFUL infomation through HIRU TV and DERANA TV – more people are manipulated in that parts of the country – all these are being held whle keeping BUDDHIST MONKs closely to them so that those PUnnakku eating folks would not be able to deny.
          .
          So long punnakku eaters stay mum – Rajakapakshe can reap the harvest.
          .
          Not insulting buffaloes, our people are even stupidier than I ever guessed at.
          :
          Astrology and THOWIL keep them that blind and indifferent, and monks have been singing the song of 2500 year old lanken history…. but we perfecltly know that we the sinahalaya s wold not have achieved anything if we were left uncolonised.

    Having plunged the country into crisis in October this seems to be a poor choice of time for MS to recharge his batteries in Bangkok, since the allocation of Ministry subjects awaits his royal sanction, Departmental work is likely to grind to a halt.

    Celebrators of democracy would like a one party system with a fake opposition. As it was in the beginning
    when only the UNP existed. Dont worry about the SLFP they have plenty of supporters now with the way the present government is acting.
