When it was questioned to learn the extent of truth on account to the reports claiming that Mr. Alagiyawanna has agreed to join the United National Party per offer by Leader of Jathika Hela Urumaya Patali Champika Ranaweera to locate him in an electoral organizer position for Gampaha District and in a powerful ministerial position once the Parliament is convened, his secretary said that Mr. Lasantha Alagiyawanna has guaranteed that he would never join the United National Party.
He further commented, “Mr. Alagiyawanna is not in the country at the moment.. He has gone abroad for his son’s surgery.

He also continuously talked with the President, anyway it is confirmed that Mr. Lasantha Alagiyawanna will not be joining the UNP.”
