MP Sajith Premadasa has requested MP Mangala Samaraweera to work with the media for the future victory of the UNP, instead of wasting time on criticising his work.
MP Sajith Premadasa made this request in a statement issued on Tuesday.
In the statement issued on Tuesday, MP Sajith Premadasa notes that Mangala Samaraweera, who claims to be the head of the UNP Media Unit, is continuously attacking the Sirasa Media Network and the owner of the Network, in order to fulfill a government contract.
Sajith Premadasa points out that it is astounding, that Mangala Samaraweera is unaware that the Sirasa Media Network faced bomb attacks and had its property set on fire, for raising a voice on behalf of the UNP.
Premadasa notes that it is Mangala Samaraweera’s responsibility and that he should give priority to winning over the media which has, and continues to distance itself from the party, rather than attacking the media.
Premadasa notes further that upon reading the statement issued by Mangala Samaraweera to the press, he is led to believe that shadows of the government within the UNP, have been alarmed as a result of the party leader and himself joining hands at the 68th Annual Party Convention held in Passara.
Premadasa writes that by questioning his genuinity and commitment and demanding that he prove it in action, Samaraweera has made evident his displeasure and jealousy towards unity in the party.
In his statement, Premadasa notes that such thoughts can only arise within a person who prays to protect the current regime. He adds that if Samaraweera had attended party convention in Passara instead of suddenly travelling abroad, he would have witnessed with his own eyes, the prayers and response of the majority of party supporters.
In the statement, Premadasa also highlights the differences between the United National Party and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party, for MP Samaraweera’s perusal.
He points out that the UNP has never changed its symbol, its colour or its principles.
Furthermore, Sajith Premadasa points out that it is far more important that Mangala Samaraweera first be aware of the great history of the UNP, before he attempts to identify the true hopes and aspirations of the party supporter.
