MR Says Viyath Maga Only A Name And It Will Continue Mahinda Chinthanaya

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today said the Viyath Maga, an initiative supported by former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, would continue the Mahinda Chinthanaya programme. 

Addressing a meeting at the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna office in Colombo, the former President said 'Viyathmaga' was only a name. 

"They spread rumours that brothers are fighting. They spread falsehood claiming Nelum Mawatha and Viyathmaga are not in good terms," Rajapaksa said referring to his brothers Basil Rajapaksa and Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. 

He said there was no difference of opinion within our camp over the Presidential candidate.

Both Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and Basil Rajapaksa were present at the meeting attended by the former President.
