A group of SLFP representatives convened a media briefing in Colombo on Saturday.

” Those in glass houses must not throw stones”,  said the former mayor of the Kaduwela MC,G.H. Buddhadasa, who went on to point out that Dullas Alahapperuma resigned with great flair yesterday. But this is the man who fled to America when a UNP government was about to be formed and only returned when the party came into power, in order to get a ministerial position.

He further charged that Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena was the district leader but Mahinda replaced him with Dullas Alahapperuma.

“How many SLFPers did he replace as organisers with people who came over from the UNP? Today, these people have forgotten all of that. It is as if they died and have been reborn”,said the former mayor.

SLFP Colombo District Organiser, Rajika Kodithuwakku stated that the time to purify and clean up the SLFP has come.

He added that action was not taken against persons who continuously violated party discipline, challenged the leadership of the party leader, hooted at the party office, and threw water bottles at the party office. So there was frustration among ‘SLFPers’ regarding why the party leader was not acting on this and why attempts were not being made to correct this,  thus he has now taken a clear step regarding this.

“So people who are speaking against the party and are working against the party ideology will have to be very careful or it will be their turn next”, he said.
