Politics of ex. President over; he has no political future - Minister Duminda Dissanayake

We the UNP and the SLFP jointly have been reigning the country showing for the first time an exemplary political vision sans political discrimination, hatred, nepotism and vengeance.

This political trend is being commended and lauded internationally. Only the former President Mahinda Rakapaksha and his clan are opposing and objecting this good governance administration in desperation, emphasized Agriculture Minister Duminda Dissanayake. He said these at a public meeting held at Galnewa recently for appraising the party supporters of the present political situation.

The minister said further that the forthcoming local government elections were not meant for selecting a president.

"Presidential elections were over and at the particular polls former president lost power and has fallen to the level of just a Member of the Parliament. Now the executive powers are vested on President Maithripala Sirisena who risked his life and political future by becoming the common presidential candidate during a period where there was no law and order neither democracy. So the voters shall choose a person representing the Executive President and the present government for the overall development of the village", the Minister said.

He said that it would be worthless and wasting the precious vote of a candidate representing Mahinda Rajapaksha if he has been voted in to power. Such a person would remain inactive and politically idling just having confined to salary allowances and various privileges, Dissanayake reiterated.

"We worked hard for the party when Chandrika Bandaranayake and Mahinda Rajapaksha were in power. Now our leader is Maithripala Sirisena and we are duty bound and obliged ethically expected to support him, protect him and follow him. The present chaotic situation in SLFP began due to the cheap politics of the former President who deprived the political future as a amateur politician by contesting again to enter the Parliament contrary to the internationally accepted political norms and criteria. Now he is barred from becoming the President or the Prime Minister. These are highly foolish, narrow minded and short sighted ways to go after Mihinda Rajapaksha and his group as such an act would help to break SLFP into fragments. Such a traitorous deed dividing the party would usher us in to sure defeat at elections as it is more important and vital to vote for SLFP to gain local government elections victory rather than wasting the franchise on ''Pohottuwa'' (flower bud) which will never politically blossom", the minister further said.

He said that the new party called 'Pohottuwa' emerged purely on the basis of soliciting political vengeance paving way for perishing the SLFP. He appealed to the public to give power to the pure SLFP to establish a powerful single government to enable to gather all democracy loving political parties under one shelter.
