SLFP parliamentary group decided never to join SLPP - Duminda

The main objective of the lotus Flower bud (Pohottuwa) party is to gobble up the SLFP. When you watch television in the night the Pohottuwa symbol dangles in the background poster with the pictures of Mahinda Rajapaksa, Gotabaya and Basil in numerical order, said SLFP National Organizer Parliamentarian Duminda Dissanayake.

“This means that the Pohottuwa is a Rajapaksa symbol. Eventhough Mahinda Rajapaksa wanted to defeat Gotabaya, we will work for his victory rather then defeat if we stand together with them,” Dissanayake said.

Dissanayake was addressing members of the Kekirawa electorate SLFP Bala Mandalaya (Central Organisation) at a meeting held recently.

Asking whether anyone could bring about the downfall of the SLFP, Dissanayake said when SLFP founder late Prime Minister S. W. R. D. Bandaranaike was felled by an assassins bullet Mrs. Sirimavo Bandaranaike took over the party leadership’s mantle, although both Mrs. Bandaranaike’s son and daughter left the SLFP to join other parties, no one was able to bring about the downfall of the SLFP. Even those who left the party were forced to rejoin it and return to base.

“Although the Pohottuwa party is a hot topic of discussion all its members were SLFPers. They were all there because of their attraction towards Mahinda Rajapaksa. Those who betrayed the SLFP would return to its fold soon to further strengthen if. Although the SLFP was facing difficulties today it would re-emerge as the strongest political party in the country soon,” he added.

“The SLFP parliamentary group which met recently decided that the party should never join the Pohottuwa party. They were not joining the Pohottuwa for the sake of the future of the SLFP rather than their own future. If they joined the Pohottuwa, the future of the SLFP would be in danger,” Dissanayake said.
