SB Writing His Second Controversial Booklet On SLFP Power Struggle

SLFP stalwart S. B.  Dissanayake is presently writing his second booklet against those who are involved in the pro - Rajapaksa campaign in his party, sources close to him told Asian Mirror on Sunday.

The first booklet, which was distributed among journalists at a party press briefing in Colombo, stirred a controversy among the top rung leadership of the party with UPFA General Secretary Susil Premajayantha and SLFP Secretary Anura Priyadarshana Yapa distancing themselves from the publication.  The booklet, which came as a publication of the SLFP media unit, was distributed among journalists by MP Thilanga Sumathipala.

It was later revealed that booklet was written by S.  B. Dissanayake who is vying for the General Secretary post of the party. The publication strongly criticized those who were campaigning for Rajapaksa with the intention of causing a division in the party.

The booklet was dubbed as a "kele paththare" by former President Rajapaksa while speaking to journalists at Abhayaramaya on Friday.

Sources close to Dissanayake he is now in the process of writing his second booklet along the same lines. It will mainly be distributed among the party's grassroots level members most of whom have already aligned themselves with the campaign supporting Rajapaksa.
