Presidential hopeful Sajith Premadasa was informed by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to gain the support of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), while those who asked to nominate Speaker Karu Jayasuriya as the candidate were informed to seek the support from the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP).
Sajith Premadasa, whose relentlessness is in peak these days, has told the Karu Faction that he can seek support from the JVP instead of the Speaker, according to sources.
Accordingly, a representative from the Sajith Faction has recently visited a member of the JVP political board.
However, prior to present his request on behalf of the Sajith Faction, the JVP member has critically objected the representative, sources claimed.
He has critically stressed that the JVP has no negotiation whatsoever with the son of the man who was responsible for murdering over 60,000 comrades and leaving their bodies on the streams and burning tires.
Upon the unexpected backlash, the representative of the Sajith Faction was left speechless and returned, according to sources.
