Dayasiri Jayasekera you need to get another life, this one is of an infant!!
I am really sad to know that a person who lost a contest fair and square by a huge margin, is now acting like a sore loser again after being stripped off his Deputy Whip post in the UNP. I was an admirer of his, as so many in the country are, but if any man has any common sense anymore one would change their minds when one looks at his behavior these past weeks after losing the contest to be the National Organizer. He has been reckless in attacking his own party leader, something one should not do, as it smacks of a person’s inability to respect those who have authority over one.
So where does he go from here. I believe the leadership was correct in stripping him off this post as he has attacked the leadership and one cannot tolerate someone in the team who has attacked the leader. There are now questions over the behavior of Sajith Premadasa, but I will restrict my points here to only Dayasiri as that is the point of this entry.
Just think for a while. This man has great PR and is popular amongst the rank and file. However just consider his ability to act not just talk. Here are the incontrovertible facts of just one incident to prove the point about his “words speak louder than his actions type of issue” he is bedeviled with.
When the rally was being organized in Hyde Park, he was given the task of organizing the stage for the event, which he accepted with glee that he would complete. Two days before the event there was no sign of the stage or Dayasiri. He was away in his Panduwasnuwera constituency in Hettipola. He was nowhere to be seen. The General Secretary had to at short notice organize alternative party members from the Colombo area to come to help with the stage and they managed to finish the job in time. Then Dayasiri was asked to organize the distribution of the leaflets notifying people of the campaign. Here again he was MIA, missing in action and some other people had to perform this task.
I need not go into further detail, but just to highlight that he is all mouth and no substance. The UNP just cannot have gas bags that are popular if they are unable to perform a task that they are committed to perform. That is the long and short of it. So I will just request this gentleman if he still is a gentleman to refrain from acting like a spoiled child because his favorite toy has been taken away and is pouting at the back of the classroom refusing to cooperate and worse trying to find lame excuses about a wrong done to him. He just deserved it no matter how many ignorant Dayasiri supporters who think butter would not melt in his mouth!!!!
