The pooja is to be held on Thursday at 2.30 p.m., and organizers have invited the Buddhist clergy and the public to participate in the event.
Meanwhile, the UNP affiliated Jathika Sevaka Sangamaya (JSS) has organized a protest march on Friday (8) calling for Fonseka’s release.
The march is to commence from the Fort railway station.
The JSS has invited other trade unions to join the protest march walk organized by them for Fonseka.
