Later due to difference of opinion with the CWC leadership as his request for a post of Deputy Minister in the UPFA government was turned down. Later he announced that he would sit in opposition in parliament as an independent member.

Radhakrishnan held discussion with UPF leader Mrs. Chandrasekaran and other leaders Thursday in Colombo.
