Southern Provincial Councilor Krishantha Pushpakumara alias Raththaran has decided to join the government.
During a media briefing held in Galle, Pushpakumara said that the callousness in the part of his party hierarchy compelled him to take the decision.
Krishantha Pushpakumara contested from the Galle district in the Southern Provincial Council election and obtained 52 thousand 371 preferential votes.
Pushpakumara was injured after he was shot at during the Anti Ranil protest march held recently in Matara.
However he said that he decided to join the SLFP as there is no unity within UNP.
