Former presidents Chandrika Kumaratunga and Mahinda Rajapaksa have been invited to participate in the Sri Lanka Freedom Party May Day rally to be held at Getambe in Kandy, Central Province Chief Minister Sarath Ekanayake said.
He said party members from across the country were expected to attend the rally in Kandy.
“The joint opposition is also holding a May Day rally in Colombo. A May Day rally should not have a political agenda, but should be about the rights of the workers,” he said.
When journalists asked about former president Rajapaksa's standing among party supporters, Mr. Ekanayake said as the leader who contributed to the ending of the war, Mr. Rajapaksa would always have a special place among party supporters. (J.A.L. Jayasinghe)

Ekanayake is off the head, are you crazy. No need to invite a Ali Baba (MR) for an important May day rally.

If MR attends the May Day Rally in Kandy, he could expect rotten eggs and rotten vegetable display in the stage when he appears.

When he (Ekanayake) was under MR, he was treated as a slave but he earned 3 Mega mansions in UK. So, obviously he likes MR than MS.

SLFP is sinking so they are trying to get MR support. Even in last election, Sirisena won the votes from tamils and Muslims.
