Attacks on Wimal maybe a sign of a seismic shift in the ruling alliance

ECONOMYNEXT – There’s bitter invective being directed at a government Cabinet Minister these days by a faction of the ruling alliance and that is prompting speculation whether some cracks are appearing in the Sri Lanka Nidahas Podujana Peramuna (SLNPP).

Industries Minister Wimal Weerawansha is the target for the hate speech and is being attacked for his call for President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to be given a bigger role in running the ruling alliance, side-lining Prime Minister Mahinda.

Weerawansha’s comments which appeared in the Sunday Sinhala newspapers the Lankadeepa and the web-only Aththa did not explicitly ask for the PM’s removal as party leader.
