He was speaking at the opening of the 124th Uda Gammanaya - Bisowedigama.
Noting that intelligent people are beginning to understand what the SLPP is gearing up to secure the Presidency and Premiership to one family.
Now they are openly questioning whether only the Rajapaksas can become a president or PM. Even Kumara Welgama, an original SLFPer is questioning this, he added.
He further said, "Just because my father was a former PM and a President of the country, it doesn't mean I would inherit the country's leadership. The public can decide that if, I am worthy, if I am exerting on behalf of the public and if I have the talent."
