UNF Colombo district candidate Upul Shantha Sannasgala is a good personal friend, JVP national list nominee, lawyer Upul Kumarapperuma says, adding that it is on the basis of that friendship that his name had been mentioned for inquiries in an invitation for a lawyers’ meeting in June.
Kumarapperuma is responding to an allegation by Frontline Socialist Party propaganda secretary Pubudu Jayagoda at a media briefing yesterday (06) that JVP national list nominees are supporting the UNP.
He told Sri Lanka Mirror that party differences are not barriers to maintain relationships with fellow human beings, adding that he is not a permanent member of a political party.
Also, at the time his name was mentioned in the lawyers’ meeting invitation, Kumarapperuma said he was not considered to be included in the JVP national list.
