Parliamentarian Nalin Bandara Jayamaha says appointing former Minister Basil Rajapaksa as Head of State is not the objective of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya.
Speaking during a media briefing in Colombo today, MP Jayamaha said members of the SJB will not stand with the Rajapaksas.
The Parliamentarian said all Constitutional Amendments must take place in line with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s resignation.
He said it is common knowledge that MP Basil Rajapaksa is vying for the post of President adding however they will thwart such efforts.
The MP said the entire Rajapaksa family is responsible for the downfall of the nation.
MP Jayamaha said ousting the Rajapaksas must take place methodically adding Chief Prelates, the Bar Association of Sri Lanka and civil activists also tabled similar proposals.
He said their aim is to establish a government that will be answerable to the public.
Joining the media briefing, MP Rohana Bandara said all politicians are engaged in deals to protect themselves, their families, and political careers instead of protecting the public.
MP Bandara claimed that Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa is the only individual seeking the well-being of the public.
