Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thera said today he is functioning as an independent Member of Parliament. He said he was keen to create awareness among the people for the need to set up a national council with inputs from intellectual politicians and others.

The monk, who said he had no differences of opinion with the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) and that he had been for some time now functioning independently in Parliament, added that he had no intention of joining the opposition.

Meanwhile, the Thera said former president Mahinda Rajapaksa has no opportunity to regain power as he couldn't contest the Presidency for the 3rd term. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Why function independently? Just leave and let the UNP appoint a suitable person from their national list.

    Looks like preparing for the next round. First round used Ven.Soma Theor's name to gain the popularity. Then used Mahinda Rajapaksha, third was Pivithuru Hetak. Now knowing the popularity of the government, trying their fourth tricks to fool the public.

    January 8th 2015 was the end of an era. People want this country to develop and don't care about petty little parties like JVP, JHU, wimal, MR etc. Sadly leaders of these parties haven't realised it yet.
