Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS - BY YOHAN PER­ERA

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.
