Colombo (News 1st); SLPP General Secretary Attorney-at-Law Sagara Kariyawasam on Monday (08) said Minister Wimal Weerawansa must publicly apologize for his comment to a local weekend newspaper where he claimed the President must lead the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna.

Kariyawasam said Weerawansa had told the newspaper that Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa must be replaced with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa as the leader of the SLPP.

“Weerawansa must understand the SLPP is not his party and he has no right to either make decisions or comments on the SLPP,” stressed Kariyawasam.

The SLPP is of the position that Minister Wimal Weerawansa must withdraw the comment he made over the SLPP leadership, he said.

‘We are disappointed by the statement made by Wimal Weerawansa, the leader of a political party affiliated with the SLPP,” he added.
