CBK disappointed over SLFP’s situation

Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga yesterday expressed disappointment over the state of affairs of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

The former President was responding to questions from journalists after she paid floral tributes to the statue of her father the late S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike at the Galle Face on the occasion of the late Prime Minister’s 122nd birth anniversary. Expressing her views about the current status of the SLFP founded by her late father, Bandaranaike said today the party was in disarray and was on the wrong path.

She also accused the current SLFP leader former President Maithripala Sirisena of holding the leadership in an illegal manner.

“At present the SLFP has lost its path. I am still in the SLFP. I came to this place because I wanted to come earlier. I have not been invited to this event. But we don’t need invitations to come. I never went to the UNP. Sirisena went to the UNP. At present the SLFP has been sold. So we have nothing to add,” she added.

Former President Sirisena also paid floral tributes at the late Prime Minister’s statue yesterday morning.
