“It was Mr. Premadasa, who is causing the biggest damage to the UNP by joining with certain media institutions. The party will decide on the Sajith factor at the UNP convention on December 21,” Eksath Jathika Bhikku Peramuna Secretary Ven. Thiniyawala Palitha Thera told a news conference.
Eksath Bhikku Peramuna Secretary Ven. Bopitiye Dhammissara Thera said they proposed the formation of the Leadership Council with lots of loving kindness and vision with the intention of saving and strengthening the party.
