Mangala Samaraweera launches 'True Patriot' political manifesto
Former MP Mangala Samaraweera announced the launch of a new political manifesto under the name ‘True Patriot’ today (06).
“A vigorous reiteration of liberal values is the need of the hour; a 'RADICAL CENTER' committed to liberalism and centrist values based on democracy, freedom, equality and justice as the four pillared foundation for a just society,” tweeted Samaraweera today, in launching the brand.
‘True Patriot’ purportedly aims for the creation of a radical centrist movement towards nation building, according to Samaraweera, who said it is “about creating a new political culture based on the value systems of Lord Buddha’s middle path to Mahatma Gandhi’s path of non-violence, from Nehru, Mandela to Obama.”
It appears the campaign has been in the works for some time, as the TruePatriot platform on Twitter immediately released a series of videos under the tag #TruePatriotLK.
