Rs. 5m astrological deal
The Elephant Party got down a reputed Indian astrologer at a cost of
Rs. Five million to find out what is wrong with the horoscope of its
leader. But Dr. Dutugemunu the Vin intercepted the guru and took him to
TT Palace. While refusing the astrologers services, MR stated that he is
a person who practises Buddha's teachings and does not need astrologers'
Big Lady at Duty Free
The Retired Big Lady did a round of duty free shopping at Katunayake
after she returned home last week. Though she has told the sales guys
the prices were too high, it was reported that she has bought some
chocolates and drinks that were labelled black on credit.
Atta-Leader to the rescue
It was Ra-Blue who ordered to close Atta-Leader's 'Elephant-Nada'
because the latter tried to boost his own image through it. But when all
newspapers, including that which belongs to his uncle, refused to
publish Ra-Blue's defamatory and malicious speech at Matara, the leader
had no option but to beg for publicity from Atta-Leader.
Ra-Blue turns blue
The few remaining leaders in the Elephant Party were shockedto see
Ra-Blue waving a blue coloured flag beside Wedding Sam at the Jana-Wave
meeting at Maa-tara. Some thought their leader was mad while the others
said he was right as a leader who has lost 14 successive elections has
no other option.
Controversy over One Shot
Internal conflicts of the Elephant party over the appointment of
organisers are not over yet. Provincial leaders from Kaa-taa-naa have
strongly objected to the appointment of One Shot the celluloid hero.
When Ra-Blue said it was a move to attract the youth vote, some Provi Em
Pees have said they must have a young star for such parts as One Shot is
44 years old.
More slots for Maapila
The Elephant Party district leaders are facing a major crisis as
Wedding Sam's Maapila group is demanding more district slots for them.
Many Elephant Party district organisers have pointed out this could well
drop genuine provincial leaders as the Bell Party secured 39 seats at
the last election.
