The deafening silence maintained by the SLFP over the moves by the UNP to oust Minister of Justice Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe from his ministerial post suggested there was no longer any space left for a gentleman politician within the current regime, Joint Opposition and SLFP Matara District MP Dullas Alahapperuma claimed.

The JO MP questioned as to what wrong the Minister concerned had committed and asked whether......speaking his heart out on behalf of the people was a crime under the current administration.

He charged that the controversial conduct of the UNP under its current 'lame duck' leader Ranil Wickremesinghe had forced a gentleman politician like Rajapakshe to take a call on his political future.
