SLFPers divided on UNP reforms

According to Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation, Nimal Siripala de Silva, the structural reforms of the United National Party (UNP) will be beneficial for the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

“The way they’re restructuring the Party is very good for us. Therefore, we won’t interfere. Let them solve their problems on their own,” he added.

Meanwhile, Parliamentarian Dilan Perera, also adding his comments on this, said that the UNP’s restructuring would not benefit the SLFP, but it would benefit the Opposition.

“I don’t see the announced structural reforms as any sort of reform at all. It is the same structure, same Leader and the same old clique that has come. The so called problem in the UNP will not be solved. Once again Ranil has failed to find a solution.”

Perera added that it was the UNP itself that had initiated the No-Confidence Motion against the Prime Minister, after the reform expected by them didn’t take place.

“I feel that the disgruntled UNP members will be talking to us in the Opposition. So these reforms are actually beneficial to the Opposition, but I don’t see any reason that it will benefit the SLFP.” (RJ)
