Manusha crosses over again -- rumours that 8 more are turning to Ranil
Manusha Nanayakkara who extended his support to Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa by taking his oaths as deputy state minister of Labour and Foreign Employment in the presence of Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has resigned from his position today. What is stated in his resignation letter is that accepting Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa who has been appointed in an unconstitutional manner is rejected by him and that he has decided to join hands with the UnitedNational Party.
In the meantime, political sources mention that several other stalwarts would be joining UNP in the future. The reason for this in reality is the protest for the violation of the constitution or else whether it is the value of a bigger chunk of money for a comparatively less amount ... it cannot be specifically assessed.
Already by now the UNP has launched a programme where they have visited homes of those who have secured portfolios as ministers where they have started discussions with them. In the process photographs captured of Ravi, Rajitha and the crowd who have gone to visit Wasantha Senanayaka who recently made a crossover was released into the internet by him. It was reported that Wasantha has once again rejected his crossover.
In the meantime, member of parliament, Mr. Ranjith Madduma Bandara has said that 8 of those who secured minister portfolios recently will be joining the United National Party. He has also mentioned that on the occasion when a vote is taken in parliament, what he has said would be confirmed and that most of those who took oaths did so because they just could not get away from them and that when a vote is taken they would stand on behalf of Mr. Ranil Wickremasingha. It is in the following manner that UNP stalwarts such as Ravi Karunanayaka, Akila Viraj, John Amaratunga and Swaminathan who went to turn around Wasantha was caught in CCTV cameras in Wasantha's house.
