Udf has successfully crossed the floor through the back door and nothing is wrong. It is like tax evasion and avoidance, avoidance is not wrong but the effect on govt coffers is the same.

Coalition parties in govt all over the world field their own candidates at local and national elections. Why not do the same you dpp or udf cheats?
