Mr. Sajith Premadasa lost the United National Party leadership due to certain 'stupid' people around him, a party senior in the Sajith Faction revealed.
The Sajith Faction intended to appoint Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe as leader of opposition and Mr. Sajith Premadasa, leader of UNP.
However, despite talks in preparation for such proposition, some of the people around Mr. Sajith Premadasa wanted to 'throw' Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe away from the United National Party paving the way for Mr. Sajith Premadasa to gain the post of Leader of Opposition, he revealed.
The hypocrisy was even displayed before media, he revealed, pointing out that their stupidity has worsen the situation.
At the end of the day, Mr. Sajith Premadasa was agreed for only the post of Leader of Opposition, he added.
Given the current circumstances the party's leadership may not be given to Mr. Sajith Peremadasa and he as the Leader of Opposition may not stand a chance to implement an innovative plan to reorganize the party, he pointed out.
People who are politically immature should be focusing on their brains to work with a skilled politician like Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe, the party senior stressed, adding that their stupidity is barring Mr. Sajith Premadasa who has a clear political future.
