“We will not be in a govt with Bathiudeen”-Gammanpila

“It is the job of the party leaders to decide who to take and who not to take. But we have made it very clear that we will not be in a government with Rishad Bathiudeen,” said the leader of Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) Udaya Gammanpila.

Speaking to the media at PHU office yesterday (12 Aug) he said that they will not support a presidential candidate who is seeking the support of Bathiudeen and that position is the same even today.

Further answering to a question raised by a journalist regarding the position of Patali Champika Ranawaka and Rajitha Senarathne joining their government he said “Wherever they are, they will be punished for their wrongs according to the law of the country, being in government will not be a hindrance for justice,”
