He had never said he would act as an independent MP in Parliament or would resign from the government says JHU Parliamentarian Athuraliye Rathana Thera.
He said this at a meting held in Kalutara area yesterday (26th). Speaking further Rathana Thera had said, “Some say I’m going to leave the government. False stories are spread that I was going to stay independent. I’ll stay with the government. Our responsibility is to trap this government and get our policies implemented.”
