Thereafter, the Anunayake of the Malwatte Chapter Most Venerable Dimbulkumbure Wimaladhamma Thero signed the declaration.

After signing the declaration, the Anunayake said:
“We are collective of the opinion that the corrupt individuals should not be given nominations. At the same time, there are monks who should be worshipped. If they are going on the wrong path, we should point them out. We are against selling our country and looting its resources. Selling chunks of our land on lease for 100 or 99 years is a serious crime.”
The March 12 movement obtained the signature of Most. Ven. Warakagoda Sri Gnanarathana Thero who is the Chief Prelate of the Asgiriya Chapter of the Siam Sect. Representatives of the movement also called on the Chief Prelate of the Ramayana Sect Most Ven. Napana Premasiri Thera at the Sri Vidyasagara Pirivena Temple in Hurikaduwa, Menikhinna.
