( December 15, 2014, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) Western Provincial Councillor - Udaya Prabhath Gammanpila who recently defected from the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) is to migrate to Australia with his family soon after the Presidential election, reports say.

Reliable sources say that he has made necessary preparations, even purchasing the flight tickets.

Therefore, Gammanpila has kindly declined the the President's offer to re-take up his Provincial ministerial portfolios again.

Recently, the President had even succeeded in making Gammanpila's wife and secretary - Dinesha Gammanpila, agree to his view.

Gammanpila, who even drafted the MoU signed between the common candidate Maithripala Sirisena and the JHU, is pretending not to acknowledge such an agreement over the pressure he is facing from his wife, reports add.

Gammanpila is a PR holder in Australia. Therefore, his family can move to the country at any preferred time with no visa obstructions.
