All UNPers have to bear the blame for defeat, unfair to point accusing finger only at Ranil …Ruwan

Ruwan Wijewardene

United National Party Deputy Leader Ruwan Wijewardena has observed that it was unfair to point an accusing finger at UNP Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe for the party’s defeat at the general election.

He made this observation during an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper. Ruwan Wijewardena said:

“As regards the defeat of the UNP at the last general election, I think we all have to take part of the blame. I do not think we can always put the blame on one person.

It is funny, because when you win, everyone takes the credit. But when you lose, it is so easy to blame just one person. I do not think we should blame Mr. Wickremesinghe solely for what happened.

Like I said, throughout the years, we, as a party, lost touch with our voter base and we did make mistakes. And it was easy for some of us in the lower ranks to blame the leader. It was a way of trying to escape from the blame. We all should share the blame.”
