A special video published online on Dec. 03 by Prof. de Silva could be implying that this certain politician is a bigwig of the Sri Lanka Podujana Party (SLPP).
Prof. de Silva says : "Certain persons were tasked with securing the parliament majority of 113 votes. But they did not execute their task properly... Just like in 1818, there is a 'Molligoda' in 2018 as well. This 'Molligoda' did not do this task well. Not that he couldn't do it... So why didn't he do it? He acted thus to destroy the SLFP and the UPFA at a General election. His intention was to establish the 'Pohottuwa' (SLPP)."
