They also added that Kumaratunga was livid after President Maithripala Sirisena agreed to give nominations to the former President from the UPFA.
Kumaratunga was also against giving nominations to the close allies of Rajapaksa. However, it has now been revealed that they have already signed nomination papers and Kumaratunga’s requests have been ignored by the party leadership.
However, when contacted by Colombo Telegraph, a member of Kumaratunga’s staff said she left for England to attend a family matter. He said the former President is expected to return soon.
