Playing game in order to save Mahinda’s seat in parliament.

image_1513712347-0a9e047290Former Minister Basil Rajapaksa says the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna is being guided by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa. Speaking to staff at the SLPP office in Battaramulla, Basil Rajapaksa said that the SLPP was formed with the backing of Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Mahinda Rajapaksa’s links to the SLPP has created controversy with some political parties saying he cannot continue in Parliament as he had obtained SLPP membership despite being elected to Parliament as a member of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).
Mr. Basil Rajapaksa said SLPP was formed and guided by Mahinda Rajapaksa, while Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa said he was not a member of SLPP. Then a question arises, how did Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa form and guide a party while he is a member of another political party? It’s very clear,what Mr. Basil Rajapaksa said was that Mr.Mahinda Rajapaksa is a member of SLPP.
As it seems they are playing a game in order to save Mr. Mahinda Rjapaksa’s seat in parliament.
