Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has not resigned from the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) or the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), UPFA MP Susil Premajayantha told Parliament today.
Rajapaksa had last month accepted membership of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP).
Susil Premajayantha said that Rajapaksa has not been removed from the SLFP for obtaining membership in the SLPP.
Meanwhile, UPFA General Secretary Mahinda Amaraweera has informed Speaker Karu Jayasuriya that Rajapaksa is still a member of the UPFA. (Colombo Gazette)
