Happy to invite Vimukthi to do politics, but his mother CBK not willing: Welgama | Sri Lanka News


Leader of New Sri Lanka Freedom Party Kumara Welgama said he is willing to accommodate former President Chandrika Kumaratunga’s son Vimukthi Kumaratunga to do politics with him. However, Mr. Welgama said Ms. Kumaratunga does not like her son to enter local politics.

Mr. Welgama formed the new party with the blessings of Ms. Kumaratunga. She, however, says she would not take up positions in the party.

Asked about Mr. Kumaratunga’s possible entry into politics, he said, “I am happy to get him to do politics with me. But, Ms. Kumaratunga has not consented to it,”

Mr. Vimukthi Kumaratunga resides in the United Kingdom. Earlier, his mother ruled out him joining politics.(Kelum Bandara)
