UNP blindly following West - Udith Lokubandara

W. J. M. Udith Lokubandara, son of Speaker W. J. M. Lokubandara said he would gladly accept the post of Badulla district SLFP organiser offered to him by President Mahinda Rajapaksa on his wedding day because he cannot play any positive role in the UNP which was blindly following the West in its policies and programs.

He said this when he called on the Malwatte and Asgiriya prelates at their respective viharayas in Kandy to receive their blessings yesterday.

Lokubandara said the UNP had never given him an organiser's post.
