One family show must end- Sooriyarachchi

[TamilNet, Sunday, 04 March 2007, 17:41 GMT]
"There is a large number of Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members, including 25 members of the parliament, who will likely support Mangala Samaraweera's and my stand, for our ideological struggle within the party and our advocacy for good governance. We also have a responsibility to bring the one family show of Rajapakses' to an end," said former Port Development Minister Sripathi Sooriyarachchi in an interview with Lankadeepa, a Sinhala weekend newspaper, Sunday.

Sooriyarachi said he regretted that Mr Rajapakse's activities have forced them to conduct a campaign that could end up favorable to the United National Party (UNP). He said he had had no discussions with the UNP leader Ranil Wickremasinghe, but accepted that he is pursuing to build a close relationship with the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP).

Sooriyarachchi also predicted that a change of historical proportions will take place in Sri Lankan politics shortly. Sri Lanka will experience such a change within two to three weeks, he added.

Meanwhile, the UNP General Secretary Tisssa Attanayake, speaking to media in Colombo Sunday said, that the party is to launch a concerted demonstration campaign against the current political and economic situation prevailing in Sri Lanka.
