They had caught a Tar­tar!

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - CONTD. FROM PAGE 1 -

There is a top team mem­ber who is in hot wa­ter th­ese days. He is also fac­ing a No-con­fi­dence Mo­tion moved by the JO.

Mean­while, some Diyawanna politi­cos who have em­barked on a mis­sion to save the top team mem­ber from pos­si­ble harm are re­port­edly meet­ing the col­leagues who are known to be ar­rayed against the much­ma­ligned man to per­suade them to go easy on him.

Their main ar­gu­ment, they say, is that im­peach­ing the man could lead to desta­bi­liz­ing the Govern­ment.

How­ever, those on the mis­sion had caught a Tar­tar when they tried to coax the young Diyawanna mem­ber now wear­ing his doc­tor­fa­ther’s po­lit­i­cal man­tle. He had told an­grily that they were on a fu­tile mis­sion where he was con­cerned.

“Most bomb at­tack vic­tims were my vot­ers. How can I meet them and their kith and kin af­ter rais­ing my hand in sup­port of that man? What you should do is to ask him to re­sign from his port­fo­lio!”

There­after, the mis­sion mem­bers had beaten a hasty re­treat.
