No Request Made By Rathana Thera To Leave Party Positions: JHU

Athuraliye Rathana Thera has not made any request to leave the positions he holds in the party, the Jathika Hela Urumaya said.

JHU Spokesman Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe made this revelation to the media.

Rathana Thera was not present at the party national convention held yesterday. Meanwhile, Omalpe Sobitha Thera announced that he will relinquish his position as the leader of the party. Some see this as a consolidation of Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka's position within the party.

Rathana Thera, in 2014, formed a new organization, the Pivithuru Hetak Jathika Sabhava, which acts outside the JHU.
