Purpose of this party is very clear. This is to split Tamil votes and reduce UNP vote base. This should be MR's plan....

He should have invited Mahinda Rajapakse as the chief guest for the ceremony and the patron to the new party.

His game plan will not work. He should have formed a party to unite tamils and sinhalese.

I agree with most comments. its obviously a racially motivated party. parties using words like sinhala Tamil Muslim Islam should not be allowed via DM Android App

Any Party that has the name of a race/religion should be considered 'Racist' IMO. Do you see parties like 'Pure AngloSaxon Party' in the UK?
