High Drama at Darley Road: Tense Standoff Outside SLFP Headquarters as Wijedasa Rajapakse Named Acting Chairman

In a tumultuous turn of events, Minister Wijedasa Rajapakse has been unanimously appointed as the Acting Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) by the executive committee. However, chaos erupted outside the SLFP headquarters on Darley Road, Colombo, as a group attempted to enter the party building, only to be obstructed by the police.

The situation escalated rapidly as supporters clashed with the police, leading to a tense standoff. The turmoil within the SLFP comes in the wake of Rajapakshe's appointment following a court order barring party Chairman Maithripala Sirisena from holding office.

With Rajapakse assuming the role of Acting Chairman, the SLFP finds itself at a critical crossroads. The party, once a formidable force in Sri Lankan politics, now faces internal strife and external pressures amidst a backdrop of political uncertainty.
