Lady politico cause of row in the SJB
A former minister, now on the SJB national list, is drawing flak from a section of the party led by a candidate from the Colombo district.
At two successive meetings, the candidate unleashed a strong barrage of criticism against the ex-minister. According to an SJB source, him being shifted from one electorate in Colombo to another, appears to be the grouse.
The ousting, they claim, has come after pressure on the SJB leader Sajith Premadasa from the ex-minister. They say it was all because a lady politico wanted it done to accommodate a close relative.
