Sports minister Dayasiri Jayasekara says he feels sorry for ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa after he attended the joint opposition May Day rally, despite being a member of the SLFP. He was speaking to the media at the SLFP headquarters today (03).

Although it is called the JO rally, in actual fact, it had been organized by the new political party formed by Basil Rajapaksa, said Jayasekara. It is questionable as to how a former party chairman could attend that rally. If he remains a SLFP member, he should work according to the policies of that party, or else he could leave the party, he said. Just like the persons who had been expelled for having acted outside party policies, the ex-president and others too, should be expelled from the party, he added.
