The Central committee of Wimal Weerawansa’s party National Freedom Front has made a decision oust NFF National list MP Achala Jagodas stating that he is not attending the central committee meetings of the party.
But it is learnt that the main reason for this is vehement criticism of
Wimal Weerawansa’s activities by Achala Jagoda. It is also said that
another reason for his ouster is his closeness to the President.
Administrative secretary of the National Freedom Front and MP Achala
Suranga Jagoda says that due to selfish and self centered behavior of
Minister Wimal Weerawansa, he and a group of activists of the NFF is now
ready to break away from the NFF and form a new party.
He also stated that some serious disappointment against the party
leadership, who do not respect the seniors, has emerged within the party
in the last few months and though he has spoken in this regard within
the party the party leadership did not pay any heed to it. He also added
that other than two members of the party that contested the last
elections from Colombo dist all the others are willing to join him and
the new party. When asked whether he is planning to join the JVP
politically once again, the MP said that they have no such idea and this
decision of theirs will be sent to the NFF in writing.
Meanwhile gen secretary of the NFF Priyanjith Vitharana commenting in
this regard said that other than wishing them good luck the party cannot
do anything about those want to reach their personal goals instead of
the common goals of the party, they cannot do anything and added that
the party also did only that when Nandana Gunatilake left the party.
