CBK says JO members of the SLFP vacated their posts

Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga says Joint Opposition (JO) members of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) vacated their posts and were not really removed.

Kumaratunga told reporters that she was appointed SLFP Organizer for Attanagalla much earlier and not last week.

“I got this post two year ago,” she said.

She says she only received the formal letter last week together with a few other SLFP members.

President Maithripala Sirisena had last week removed joint opposition members Kumara Welgama and Mahindananda Aluthgamage from their SLFP Organizer posts.

Kumaratunga said that those who are not involved in SLFP work cannot hold posts in the party. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Her presence is a curse to Sri Lanka. While feeding on LTTE money she came with the European mission to destabilise the development in Sri Lanka and she has done it with the help from UNP. SLFP is not her property, people should rename it so she cannot claim it anymore as belong to her family.
