Wimal’s NFF in internal rift, to hold decisive meeting on 19th Featured

The National Freedom Front is to hold a decisive meeting of its 17-member politburo on April 19, say sources in the party.

A majority in the politburo is critical of party leader Wimal Weerawansa’s having held a fasting at remand prison demanding freedom and of the manner he had ended it.

The NFF gained nothing out of it, but was subjected to public ridicule, say the party’s secretary and most members of the politburo.

Weerawansa had neither informed in advance nor sought consent before resorting to the fasting either.

Another matter for their concern is that the leader’s wife and relatives consider them as slaves and servants and abuse them.

The silence in the party after Weerawansa secured bail is due to this internal crisis, the sources say.

Ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa and joint opposition’s leader Dinesh Gunawardena too, are critical of the NFF leader’s present politics.
