Muslim Congress Secy – Gen Hasen Ali Says His Powers have been Stripped to Make Party Leader Rauff Hakeem Supreme

The senior-most leader of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC), Hasen Ali, has rebelled against the party complaining of a consistent bid by the party Establishment to engineer his exit by stripping him of powers due to him as party General Secretary.

Ali (70) was conspicuous by his absence at the SLMC’s 19 th. Grand Convention at Palamunai in Ampara district on Saturday in which the chief guest was Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena.

Ali’s boycott caught the media’s attention almost as much as President Sirisena’s speech in which he ridiculed rival Mahinda Rajapaksa’s demand that power be handed back to him.
