Fmr. Pres. Wijetunga’s daughter to enter politics?

28 August 2016 05:56 pm - 21     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Former President D.B. Wijetunga’s daughter Chithrani Kumari Wijetunga today said she would consider entering active politics if she receives a ‘formal’ invitation.

She was speaking to the media at a Blood Donation campaign held in front of her late father’s statue in Pilimathalawa today.

“I may not have qualifications to be a politician in Sri Lanka, but I have more than enough qualifications to be a public servant. I have no habits of lying, using abusive vocabulary, cheating the public, misusing public property and spending so much money to obtain votes. I am confident that I can launch a good political programme on behalf of the entire Kandy District,” she said. (Nadeeka Daya Bandara)

    You should have abusive vocabulary, cheating public, misusing public property and public money to enter Sri Lanka politics if you feel that you don't have those qualification then you are not suit to Sri Lanka politics.

    She does not lie, does not cheat the public,misuse public money or property. So she does not qualify to be a politician.
