December 01, 2021

Former Member of Parliament Arjuna Ranatunga has met both the Chief Prelates of Malwatta and Asgiriya and stated that he will continue to be independent in politics and will work to create a new political system for the country.

"I am working shoulder to shoulder to create a new political system in this country. I have no intention of forming a separate party or joining hands with existing parties. I hope to fulfill my duty for the country by becoming independent without being further trapped in party politics," Ranatunga has said.

Ranatunga reccently resigned from the membership of the UNP expressing disappointment with the reorganisation of the party.

"The politics that exists in this country today has not done any good to the country. Instead, another way is needed. That is what we are trying to build," the former Minister added.
