Senior Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) member, MP Kumara Welgama says that a victory of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna

(SLPP) at the upcoming presidential election would result in the dissolution of the SLFP founded by the late S.W.R.D. Banadaranaike.

He has told media that it was the duty of the SLFP members to protect the party without letting it be destroyed.

Welgama further noted that he would neither support SLPP presidential candidate, Gotabaya Rajapaksa nor United National Front (UNF) presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa.

"The decision to support the SLPP itself is a betrayal of the SLFP," he has said.
