After leaving JVP, he established a new party called ‘Janatha Sevaka’ party in Colombo today.
In a summit held for the occasion, he also appointed the party’s office bearers.
Expressing his views, he stated that he has served JVP for 46 years and now people are waiting to see if he would join the SLFP
He also stated that he doesn’t have an MP fever, as some would say, instead he has a President fever.
And that no leader has ever said they would remove the post of President after becoming a President, except for former JVP leader Rohana Wijeweera.
Therefore, he says that people demand him to become a president, since he has no intension of remaining in the position for long.
