Premadasa himself said those who leave the Party are idiots – Ranil
Once former President R. Premadasa himself had said that should anyone leave the United National Party, they are idiots, revealed UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.
Speaking to LNW, Mr. Wickremesinghe said that it, therefore, is useless to speak of those who left the Party in the aim of forming another.
Many groups before had left the Party, but all of them had to rejoin, he added, suggesting that neither of the occasions had ever caued any damage to the Party.
Therefore, there is nothing to worry about those who had left, and the pure United National Party existed in the era of D.S. Senanayake can be rebuilt, Wickremesinghe pointed out.
