Many allies of the country have turned away, says Karu
UNP Parliamentarian Karu Jayasuriya says that many allies of the country have turned away due to the short- sighted actions of the government.
He made this statement during a function held in the Kurunegala area.
“This is an era when the people are being hoodwinked under the guise of patriotism. If there is any danger to our country from Geneva or any where else, we will not let it happen because we love the country.’’
“However if they are going to hold on to this issue and cover-up the other burning issues in the country then we see this as a wrong move. Today, all the allies of our country have turned away from us. If anyone speaks on behalf of human rights and freedom of the press then they are branded as tiger terrorists. You cannot behave like the village thug and solve these issues, they should be handled diplomatically”
The function was held Wednesday to declare open the electricity scheme constructed with the aid of funds from parliamentarian Ashok Abeysinghe’’s decentralised fund.
Parliamentarian Ashok Abeysinghe expressed these views.
“As there is a disciplinary inquiry against me, I no longer hold the post of Kurunegala organiser. They are trying to remove me from this party, but this cannot be done very easily because we are with the people. Only the people can remove me. If the people don’t need me during the next election the people will not vote for me, but the party leader cannot remove me’’’’ said Ashok Abeysinghe.

Hon Jayasuriya looks a tired man. Even his thoughts appear a bit tired. It’s time for retirement; time to spend hours with the Grandkids who would love the company of the potty old grand-dad with a failing memory and a decelarating intellect.
KJ is a burnt out ‘has been’. He has lost his place in current govt as well as he is in UNP. He is a nonentity. UNP is divided into several factions and are torn in bitter in-fighting. There are not a govt in-waiting. Who will vote for them, except the die-hards, which are now a minority of a minority. I suggest that KJ now retire to end his last days in peace and doing some charitable work as penance for his many sins of commission and omission during his UNP era. He looks old and haggard! Instead of being a mouth-piece for this faction or that faction in the UNP and looking such an utter fool every time he opens his mouth, why can’t he withdraw and keep his mouth shut and look wise. At least that way he’ll keep some respectability.
