Take action against Weligama PS
Heads of UNP led local bodies in a letter addressed to UNP General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam had requested him to take action against Weligama Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman Rohan Jayawickrama who had criticized the party.
“Mr. Jayawickrama had said he represents a third generation of party leaders since he is claiming to be a grandson of Late Minister Ranjan Wijeratne. Citing this Mr. Jayawickrama had said he should have a say in the party. UNP does not have a tradition of making decisions based on family heritages. He had actually insulted Late Ranjan Wijeratne,” the local body heads have stated in their letter.
They have also claimed that Mr. Jayawickrama has been associated with the Rajapaksas.
Also the heads of UNP led Pradeshiya Sabhas have accused him of trying to create a rift between Party Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa.
Making these allegations, the heads of UNP led local bodies have requested Mr. Kariyawasam to conduct a disciplinary inquiry against the Chairman of Weligama Pradeshiya Sabha.
