V.S.Radhakrishnan, Nuwara Eliya district parliamentarian of the Ceylon Workers’ Congress (CWC) told Saturday that he leaves his party and will sit as an independent member in parliament and support the government led by Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapakse. Earlier there was speculation in political circles that he would join the Upcountry Peoples Front (UPF) to fill the post of leader of the UPF with the demise of its founder leader Periyasamay Chandrasekaran.

Mr.Radhakrishnan dismissed that report and said he was asked by the wife of late Chandrasekaran to take over the leadership but he declined to accept that offer.

However the leadership of the CWC had misunderstood him and neglected to his request for a Deputy Minister post in the UPFA government.

He said that the CWC has been neglecting his request for a Deputy Ministerial post. .V.S. Radhakrishnan is a CWC member who successfully contested under the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) at the last General Elections.
