He created a stir in Sri Lankan politics when he was sacked as a minister by President Mahinda Rajapakse in 2007, after which he formed a new political party called the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (Mahajana) Wing, which later merged with the United National Party in 2010.

He served as a politician for over 30 years in his career until his retirement from politics in 2020.

During his tenure as a politician, he was known for his political stance against Sinhala Buddhism regime despite himself being a Sinhala Buddhist and despite Sri Lanka being a majority Buddhist nation
