National Freedom Front (NFF) leader and UPFA MP for Colombo District Wimal Weerawansa has called off his eight (9) day hunger strike amidst pirith chanting by Buddhist monks today.

He ended his protest fast on the requests of Venerable Theras of the Malwathu and Asgiri chapters and fellow politicians.

Weerawansa, who launched a hunger strike on March while in prison over the rejection of his bail applications, had been refusing food and was reportedly only drinking liquids.

He was admitted to the prisons hospital on March 26 due to his deteriorating health condition while he was transferred to the Colombo National Hospital yesterday (29). He was arrested and remanded on charges of misusing state-owned vehicles
