Jathka Hela Urumaya (JHU) said today that it had decided to withdraw from the United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and was to contest the forthcoming General elections from a separate platform pushing for good-governance and democracy.
JHU General Secretary Patali Champika Ranawaka addressing a media briefing said the Central Committee of the party had decided to contest the elections from a new party, which was to be formed.(Piyumi Fonseka)
This is not a move to check vote base, but to free the country from corrupted politicians and the slaves. This must be the priority.

At least these people have the resolve to get out of UPFA and contest unlike rotten and antediluvian parties like MEP.

Give up your stubborn policies and join the UNP.

I am not a politically bias person. But feel that JHU has every rights to refrain from supporting former front which again expected to be filled with rogues and socially rejected discarded maroons. All the best!
