UNP’s internal shuffle, a heartburn for some members
The UNP’s internal reshuffle had been the cause for heartburn of some
senior members, including those who have been re-appointed to positions
other than what they already hold.
A senior and vocal member of the UNP said even Minister Daya Gamage
was not happy to lose the national organiser’s post. “He is only 50
percent happy,” he said.
Deputy Minister of Special Projects and Gampaha district
parliamentarian Ranjan Ramanayake had confronted the UNP leader as to
why he was overlooked when the party’s internal positions were
reshuffled recently giving prominence to young and new faces.
Asked for his comments on the recent change of party posts, he said,
“I asked the Leader if there was a lapse or a shortfall in my
contribution to the party.”
