* Sri Lanka main opposition party reinstates quarrelsome MP
Sat, Aug 30, 2014, 12:48 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 30, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) which is in a bid to unite the party, has decided to revoke a disciplinary probe initiated against the party's Kalutara district parliamentarian Palitha Thewarapperuma.

The UNP suspended the membership of Thewarapperuma earlier this year for his unruly behavior during a party meeting.

The UNP has decided to revoke the disciplinary probe against the MP and reinstate him in the electoral organizer position of Matugama electorate.

Thewarapperuma behaved violently and attempted to assault the party leader Ranil Wickremasinghe during a UNP parliamentary group meeting in February this year.

The party even had appointed senior counsel Joe Seneviratne to probe the charges against the MP.

However, the MP has reportedly apologized and agreed to bury the hatchet.

The UNP leader recently invited all the party members, who left the party for various reasons, who were expelled from the party, and the members subjected to disciplinary inquiries to forget all past discontents and join the UNP again to defeat the present Rajapaksa regime.
