The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) last night (31) held a religious activity in Kataragama for the 60th time to invoke merits on its founder the late S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike and the late Sirimavo Bandaranaike.
A sermon was preceded by an illumination of Kiri Vehera that was switched-on by a former leader of the party, Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Also present were ministers Mahinda Amaraweera, Nimal Siripala de Silva, Jagath Pushpakumara, Suren Raghavan and Chamara Sampath Dassanayake, and SLFP national organizer Duminda Dissanayake.
Amaraweera and the party’s general secretary Dayasiri Jayasekara were recently involved in a verbal exchange over the right to organize this religious activity.
