UNP member, former MP Arjuna Ranatunga has resigned from the party membership with effect of Monday (29).
In a letter to UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe, he said that he is disappointed over the party has failed to establish a mechanism to win future elections yet.
“I thought we could establish a mechanism to win the people again after the landslide defeat in General Election 2020. That was why I remained with the party even after the defeat. But I cannot see such mechanism even after many months. In this backdrop, I feel that there is no point of remaining in party membership anymore. That is why I decided to leave the party. I appreciate your leadership qualities,” he said.
