I wrote this post on my blog as a response to Ajith Perera's blog post titled "Only Tamils are terrorists; not Pakistanis?" on Wednsday 11th March. Then I left a comment on his blog post, refering to my reply post. I mentioned in my note that, "this post is now congested with comments by many other readers, so I decided to leave my comment as a new post on my own blog". Then I invited Mr. Ajith P Perera, to leave any responses on my blog post (if necasary). For my surprise, the comment wasn't published on Ajith's blog. Then I tried again. Wordpress said "Whoops! Looks like you've already said that". Meaning, my comment was saved in the WP database, but wasn't published on Ajith's blog.

The hard core UNP’ers will never let SB to be the party leader. If at all there’s any hope for the UNP; that got to be Sajith. But then again, he’s being cornered to a desert district.
Why UNP never appoint newly popular characters to Colombo district? Why Karu was moved to Gampaha district, where as he started his political career from Colombo MC? Why Milinda Moragoda had to leave UNP?
And who is this new funny “Ruwan Wijewardene” pushed so hard by the UNP, for upcoming Western provincial council?
Ajith! I know you love your party. My father did love it too. He never voted any other party, ever since independence. he voted Ranil in last presidential election. But you know what? He now regrets for voting Ranil, against Mahinda. No matter how much you dislike to believe, that’s the common mentality of most of the long standing UNP supporters. You people blame SLFP to be dominated by Rajapakshe’s. But undeneath the radar, there’s a “Wijewardene” saga going inside the UNP. Innocent voters doesn’t see this. The party is dominated by only a certain family blocks. They won’t let some one from common public to climb into the leadership. Not SB. Nor Sajith.
It’ll be “Wijewardene” family tree all alone for ever!!!
BTW, we must congratulate SLFP’ers for “liberating” it from Bandaranayake’s. Now Ajith, it’s your turn to liberate UNP from Wijewardene’s.

So you seem to be tired of Ranil as well don’t you? can’t blame you.I agree Ranil is not marketable anymore. Sri Lanka doesn’t deserve someone like Ranil, what it deserves is crooks in the caliber of JR, RP and MR.
As for sajith, he chose Hambantota no one pushed him there, it is always easier to fool the rural folk.
Milinda had to leave because of the COPE report.
Whats is so good about Bandaranayakes been replaced by Rajapakshes? Why can’t we get rid of these family politics?
As for Ruwan I agree, Ranil is trying to bring in him and it is sad.
Looks like Ajith is really "not dare to be different". What he is doing is just what would any other cheap politician would do. Simply "turning off" opposing voices. That's what his party leader is doing. And the funny thing is, people like Ajith are talking about freedom of speech and threat to that freedom by Mahinda Rajapakshe government! Ajith P Perera is not alone. The so called guardians of freedom of speech; Groundviews does this. Dinindu De Alwis does this! (We must appreciate Indi's policy in this regards. He never moderate comments. Instead he simply ignore tough comments)
Is this what you are going to do, if you manage to bring a UNP government to power, Mr. Ajith P Perera? Wish you all the best for upcoming PC polls.
