Ven.Inguruwatte Sumangala Thera who commenced a fast at Independence Square demanding proof that SLPP presidential candidate Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is a Sri Lankan citizen has reiterated that he will not abandon the fast until Rajapaksa tendered his passport.

The Ven. Thera said he will not abandon the fast until his request is met despite medical officers warning that his health condition is deteriorating rapidly.

Ven.Kalubovila Paduma Thera who was at the fast site at Independence Square told news media that President Maithripala Sirisena should intervene to solve this issue.

“Thirty four out of 35 candidates contesting the presidential election have submitted documents in relation to their citizenship. Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is contesting the election claiming that he has renounced his American citizenship,” he said.

The Thera said the President is to retire from the presidency and he can intervene to solve this issue.
