Meanwhile, another JHU parliamentarian Ven Athureliye Ratna Thera has severely criticised Ven. Dammaloka's stance on supporting UNP candidate Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Speaking at the conference Ven.Dammaloka Thera said that it was Wickremesinghe who could solve the island's hard hitting problems.

"The SLFP candidate and his allies the JVP and the JHU have no proper plans to uplift the country and to solve the ethnic crisis. The JVP's stance would take the country backward and destroy all the resources", Dhammaloka said.
