SLFP holds religious event to transfer merits to Mangala

A special religious event was organised by the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) to transfer merits to the late former minister - Mangala Samaraweera.
The event was held this evening (26) at the Hunupitiya Gangaramaya temple.
Former President - Maithripala Sirisena and several party stalwarts attended the event, which was conducted by six Buddhist monks including the Temple's Chief incumbent - Ven. Dr. Kirinde Assaji Thero.
Speaking to the media after the event, the former President stated that the event was held to transfer merits to Mangala Samaraweera, who was a senior SLFP member as well as an honest friend.
He was a man who fearlessly expressed what needed to be said, based on his vision. We regret losing him not only as his associates, but also as a party, Mr. Sirisena said.
SLFP office bearers - Dayasiri Jayasekera, Mahinda Amaraweera, Duminda Dissanayake and Lasantha Alagiyawanna also attended this event.
