Most. Ven. Mahanayake Thera urges Weerawansa to support Government

JVP MP Wimal Weerawansa and his nine loyalists say their group will work closely with the National Patriotic Movement [NPM] to defeat separatism in Sri Lanka.

Speaking to the media yesterday in Kandy, the JVP dissidents said that they want to correct their party's path.

"We got furious feed back from the JVP leadership when we asked to correct their path, he said.

Weerawansa and his loyalists made a courtesy visit to Most Ven. Mahanayaka Theras of Malwatta and Asgiriya and pay their homage to the Temple of the Tooth relic. Mahanayaka of the Malwatta Chapter Most Ven. Tibbotuwawe Sri Sumangala Nayaka Thera urged the JVP dissidents to support the Government to liberate Sri Lanka from terrorism.

"If you join the Government and take Cabinet portfolios it is not an unfair thing for your voters. I think it is the suitable way to help the Government," said the Ven. Thera. During the courtesy calls Weerawansa said he always wishes to obtain advice from the Most Ven. Mahanayakas.

Weerawansa and the other nine Parliamentarians were welcomed by Nilanga Dela Bandara, the Diyawadana Nilame.
