The Kaduwela Mayor G.H. Buddhadasa yesterday in a special statement made at the monthly MC meeting held at the auditorium that he has decided to join President Maithripala Sirisena and work towards progress and will not tolerate any more ill-treatment within the party.
“I was the first to display cut-outs and conduct Pada Yathra in Colombo, but I was neglected by the office of one ministry in the election campaign, which compelled me to take this decision”.
He further said: “Former ministers Basil Rajapaksa and Wimal Weerawansa ignored me. They worked against me during the last Municipal Council Election. However, Maithripala Sirisena helped my victory at the election. Therefore, I have decided to help his government with gratitude”.
Most of the SLFP supporters have now inclined to support President Maithripala Sirisena. With the successful completion of the 100 day programme, this government will become more popular and it would be possible to achieve a great development in the country, he said.
He also said that Wimal Weerawansa worked against Mahinda Rajapaksa presenting 12 demands and boycotting 7 cabinet meetings .
