Chandrika removed from SLFP politburo! Featured

Former president Chandrika Kumaratunga has reportedly been removed from the central committee (politburo) of the SLFP.

Kumaratunga was appointed the party’s patron after Mahinda Rajapaksa became its chairman.

Incumbent Maithripala Sirisena appointed her a member of the board of patrons.

That board was dissolved recently after which both Kumaratunga and Rajapaksa were named consultants to the SLFP.

At the same time, Kumaratunga represented the party’s CC.

Carried a tale against me – Chandrika

Sri Lanka Mirror reached her for a comment over reports that she was not invited for a meeting of the CC yesterday (08).

Kumaratunga said she got to know about the meeting only after some of its members inquired from her about her absence.

She said she was surprised by their inquiries, adding that she believed someone had carried a tale to the party hierarchy against her.
