Big Lady gets satellite phones
The Retired Big lady has got a dozen satellite phones from Uncle
Sam's mission to be used in the conspiracy to bring in Polonnaru Sira as
the candidate that is common.
The lady kept two for her and gave a phone each to Sira, the
convicted dental surgeon, Wedding Sam, Ra-Blue and the other
stakeholders of the coup. None of them used a single mobile or a land
phone and changed their vehicles for secret night missions during the
operation that saved Ra-Blue's Green leadership.
Ka-roo conspires against Sira
Ka-roo and his confidants held a secret meeting in Colombo yesterday
to explore ways and means to thwart Ra-Blue's efforts to hang on to
party leadership by making Polonnaru Sira a scapegoat.
Ka-roo was furious that Ra-Blue did not offer him the candidature if
the Green leader was not willing to contest. Ka-roo had instructed his
supporters to refrain from voting for exported SLFers and that they
should either spoil their votes or refrain from voting.
Love-Slave plans different strategy
Saaj-jeet, the Love-Slave had told his confidants that the
opportunity they had of ousting Ra-Blue after the Prez polls had been
somewhat prevented with Ra-Blue offering the candidature to Polonnaru
"Had he contested and lost, we could have ousted him easily. Yet, we
could bounce back by defeating the leader's choice. We could project an
indirect defeat to the party and capture power," Love-Slave had told a
closed door meeting.
Bell Boys in a dilemma
The Bell Boys are on the horns of a dilemma whether to support Sira
or not. Anura Price, who fears to contest that his true potential would
be exposed, proposed to the politburo that they should back Sira for a
regime change at any cost.
However, Lull Kanth and several others strongly opposed the idea,
saying that they cannot vote for an SLFP discard.
