UNPer calls for genuine reforms


By Shamindra Ferdinando

UNP Galle District MP Bandula Lal Bandarigoda yesterday said that the party required genuine far reaching reforms without further delay.

There was no point in effecting cosmetic reforms at a time the party has to face provincial councils, presidential and parliamentary polls in three consecutive years, beginning this year.

MP Bandarigoda said so when The Island asked him whether he was satisfied with the reforms initiated in the wake of the abortive bid to move a No-Confidence Motion (NCM) against Prime Minister Wickremesinghe.

Bandarigoda said that those who had been really pushing for drastic improvements expected real change. The UNPer emphasized that theirs wasn’t an effort against any particular individual, but a genuine interest in the well being of the country and the party.

The UNPer said that in the wake of Feb. 10 defeat the party had no option but to take tangible measures to consolidate it. Badarigoda recollected the difficulties they faced in facing the NCM due to serious differences among members. Responding to a query, Bandarigoda said that they couldn’t be truly satisfied with the current efforts being made to reform the party.
