Feb 25, Colombo: The Media Secretary of Sri Lanka's Democratic Party leader Sarath Fonseka held a media briefing today to announce that he had resigned from the post.

The media official Sanjeeva Samarasinghe said that there is no democracy in the Democratic Party. Fonseka was a dictator and the party had been subjected to his autocratic rule, he said.

Samarasinghe further accused that Fonseka never believed in democratic rule and he would not change the executive presidency.

Samarasinghe accused that the party had no transparency in fundraising.

While, the media officer was briefing, two supporters of Fonseka openly accused that Samarasinghe is a fraudster who had been sacked by Fonseka from the position.

Police security had to be given to the venue where the media conference was held as a result of the situation.
