Agriculture Minister Mahinda Amaraweera yesterday said that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) represents the people’s force and it will never be limited to a nameboard.

The Minister was speaking to the media at the all night pirith chanting held annually by the SLFP at Kirivehera. He added that no one can destroy the party.

Parliamentarian Duminda Dissanayake said that some politicians attempted to prevent the party members from participating in this ceremony citing that President Ranil Wickremesinghe would be participating in this event.

“A former leader of our party, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa participated in the event today. Therefore, many people who were waiting to paste tag of the United National Party (UNP) were disappointed,” he said.

Foreign Employment State Minister Jagath Pushpakumara said that many SLFP senior members attended the event except SLFP President Maithripala Sirisena.

“We thought that the SLFP President would attend this ceremony to pay tribute to its founders,” he said.

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa illuminated the Kirivehera before the start of the pirith chanting ceremony.

Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena, former Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa, Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva. State Ministers Duminda Dissanayake, Chamara Sampath Dasanayake, Dr. Suren Raghavan, Jagath Pushpakumara, Shasheendra Rajapaksa, Pandu Bandaranaike and many others were present.
