(Lanka-e-News - 23.Nov.2017, 2.35PM) For the first time UNP returned the ‘gun fire’ of Kili- Maithri group that had been unrelentingly launching unjust attacks targeting the UNP. This furious firing came from the cannon of UNP deputy minister Sujeewa Senasinghe. He said plainly , it should be either Kili or Maithri who should run the country – not both.
‘I am indeed thoroughly disillusioned with the president . We appointed you after risking our lives. Specially, it was not to escalate the political issues. I think one Institution has given the idea to you ,by destroying Rajapakses and the UNP , you can form a huge force in 2020.
I told you about a month ago , don’t go on extending the period of this Commission . By extending the term of the Commission it was allowed to sling mud at us.
Where is the presidential Commission for the MiG deal ? Where is the presidential commission for the Spectrum ? Rs. 7 to 8 billion are monies of the people . Where is the presidential Commission for the ship deal? Where is the presidential Commission for the Advertising Companies?
With what amount of commitment we installed this government .
Is it stated anywhere , I spoke to the CID to protect Aloysius ? Is it stated anywhere I spoke to the Central bank officer to protect Aloysius? I spoke only to obtain the information during the COPE committee . Is it stated anywhere the COPE Committee cannot talk to anyone ? Is there such a law? Where is it not ethical ? What did we say after gathering that information? We told to conduct an investigation pertaining to Perpetual Treasuries. If I have to put through a deal , need I have to make 40 telephone calls ? It can be done in two phone calls. I am a lawyer. If I want to transact a deal , will I take calls on my phone?
It is one channel that is slinging mud. Either that channel should administer the country or president Maithripala. One of them must decide who should run the country. Upul Jayasuriya was ousted on a phone call on the Chalmer’s land transaction. These are deals? Thereafter Muhundan of TRC was ousted on a phone call . This Commission too was not president’s . After dragging the Commission on and on ,and after slinging mud at us , it was concluded.
These are my personal hard feelings against the president. We are also in the same age range of his children. If he is shielding his children , and if Lanka e news attacking him is bad ,then if another media is attacking us , that too is bad
We were with you. You said you were coming along with 20 , but you came only with four . Our group said, ‘ Sir, don’t give if he is coming only with four.’ Rosie Senanayake stood up and said , ‘ Don’t say like that , now he has come in no matter how many he brought , so let us start our struggle’
The next to get up was me ,’Sir , never mind how many he brought , let us launch on our struggle, ’ I told.
Hence , if there is anything wrong in what I am disclosing , you can appoint any Commission . You are the president. You cannot point a finger at us and say , rogues are not being caught . If you can appoint a Bond Commission , similarly you can do that for the others too.
Of course these are my personal sentiments . I do not know whether the P.M. would blame me.’

This requires the current central bank governer to answer and explain in Q & A session. Mr President, call for this session , without any further delays to ensure public confidence. There is no requirement to hide your face as well as the Mr Prime minister.
