A media briefing was convened by the Democratic Party on Tuesday to elaborate on certain members of the party joining the government.

Speaking at the event, Western Provincial Councilor Naleen Pradeep Uduwela revealed that even he was called to pledge support to the ruling party.

“I was offered 50 million rupees. In addition I was offered a parliamentary vehicle licence. Then, I was told if required me and my entire family would be given a citizens’ visa to either Canada, Australia or the Netherlands.”

“They also told me that I would be made co-organiser of Homagama as there is already a chief-organizer. I finally told them that I do not live on the expectations of money. It is enough if I have just the right amount of money to survive.”

Several other members of the party also expressed their views at the briefing.
