The SLPP is unarguably the strongest political force in the country, at present, but its fate is tied to that of the ruling family. Dynasties do not last forever.
Ex-President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga (CBK) would have us believe that her successors, Mahinda Rajapaksa and Maithripala Sirisena, are responsible for the ruination of the SLFP, which her late father founded. She has taken it upon herself to rebuild the SLFP with the help of a young team. Can any of the ex-Presidents absolve himself or herself of the blame for ruining the SLFP?
