The United National Party (UNP) says its doors still remain open and it stands ready to work with former members who joined the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB). 

UNP Deputy Leader Ruwan Wijewardena said that most of those in the SJB are former UNP members. 

A majority of those in the SJB are our friends and former UNP MPs,” he said. 

He said the UNP never closed its doors on those who left the party and those doors still remain open. 

Wijewardena was speaking to reporters on Saturday after attending talks initiated by former Speaker Karu Jayasuriya involving a number of opposition political parties. 

Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa and members of the Tamil National Alliance were among those who attended the talks.

  1. You are even ready to work with dead members, because you are not concern about the outcome. You are just there to create your own wealth.

    White and yellow people made their countries as developed countries, but brown and black people could not even make one country as a developed country. What does it tell you? This particular races haven’t evolved as white and yellow people. Another example for least evolved people, brown and black people still eat by hand. But white and yellow people do not eat by hand. Because when you eat by hand, you increase the chances of germs getting into your body by 8 times. This week I have unfriended people from my Facebook. I don’t want politically affiliated people from South Asia in my Facebook, because I don’t see them become evolve as white and yellow people for another thousands of years. My advice to talented South Asians is get out of that shit hole, it will never prosper for thousands of years. It is a place for criminals to have high profile jobs. Google CEO Sundar Pichai was born in poor family in Tamil Nadu. He could not even afford to buy a computer. At the ame time Chief minister of Tamil Nadu unbelivably wealthy by corrupt deals. Likewise, the Rajapaksas are extremely wealthy by corrupt deals as well. This is the true status of South Asia.
