Split in Wimal Weerawanse led NFF

[TamilNet, Friday, 24 December 2010, 10:51 GMT]
The National Freedom Front (NFF) a splinter group from the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has reportedly expelled its national list parliamentarian Achala Jagoda from the party. The party secretary Prianjit Vitarana had refused to comment on the expulsion, but had told Colombo media that his party would not tolerate anyone who has been working against the party. His party is aligned with Mahinda Rajapaksa and is deployed by Rajapaksa brothers to showcase Sinahala extremist policies as a pressure tactic to the West, NGOs and the UN.

Achala Jagoda has been the administrative secretary of the outfit and held the portfolio of Minister of Tourism in the earlier UPFA government.

The difference of opinion between him and Wimal Weerawanse is reported to have arisen following the latter rejecting his attempt to obtain a ministerial post in the recent cabinet formation.

Wimal Weerawanse, who was the propaganda secretary of the JVP, formed the NFF after a split in the party in 2008. He is a minister in SL President's cabinet.
