I will come to politics from UNP: Tissa

United National Party’s former General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said yesterday that he would come into national politics again as a UNP member in the upcoming elections.

Addressing a rally in Geli Oya, Kandy Mr. Attanayake said though he supported former President Rajapaksa during the last Presidential Elections he always remained a UNPer and did not go to the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

“I feel that this is the correct time to get back into politics. I will always stand with the people’s hopes and represent the general public,” he said.

He said he was away from the politics for certain period as it was a transition time in politics and was not the right time to take a political decision.

He said that he wasn’t satisfied with the current political situation in the country.

“People too doubt the political leadership and their work,” he said.

“I hope to support the UNP to take the State leadership. Over 23years UNPers suffered without UNP President in the country. As to my belief the justice is not done to the UNPers. It is the people’s hope that a UNP candidate would take the country’s leadership,” Mr. Attanayake said.

Meanwhile, he said that the UNP needed a Presidential Candidate, who could win the 2020 Presidential Election. (Thilanka Kanakarathna and J.A.L. Jayasinghe)

    J. Palitha Monday, 28 August 2017 08:00 AM

    No.Last week he was with the defeated king at Carlton.

    ravin Sunday, 27 August 2017 04:54 PM

    Oh!!! no no no. If UNP take back traitors, old story - never will come to power. In that case any political party should never take traitors back

    Appuhamy Sunday, 27 August 2017 05:07 PM

    Feeling sorry. May be due to financial difficulties...

    Samason Samarasinghe Monday, 28 August 2017 07:38 AM

    No. Mahinda was paying one million/month from his looted money.

    AjithZ Sunday, 27 August 2017 05:25 PM

    You should never be taken back for what you did to the party and the leader for personal gains.

    Manuel Benjamin Monday, 28 August 2017 07:51 AM

    Better he joins the rogues and Alibaba Mahinda and survive.

    Sincere Sunday, 27 August 2017 06:12 PM

    Yes, why not? . First admit and repent your misdeeds, confess them to people and promise not to repeat them again. You can be a good UNP politician.

    Prof. Anton Amarasekera Monday, 28 August 2017 07:56 AM

    You are correct, he should frankly ask forgiveness via media and regret for all his wrong doings. then sometimes...

    Genuine UNPers strongly believe that you are a traitor. You know exactly what you have done. (MANIPULATED THE SIGNATURE OF YOUR OWN LEADER) You are not a trustworthy person at all. So you should not come to our party.Under the present leadership of UNP there are no place for thieves, cheaters, Manipulators,Drug barons, mafia teams and those who rob taxpayers money. AT THE UPCOMING LOCAL ELECTIONS UNP SHOULD GIVE NOMINATIONS TO EDUCATED CREATIVE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO CRIMINAL RECORDS.

    TD Sunday, 27 August 2017 08:04 PM

    According to tissa attanayake, You were not satisfied with your leader and you left and landed with mahinda. During the time when you were Secretary of the unp we lost all elections. As soon as you left the UNP we won both elections.You better stay way from UNP party. We do not loose any more elections with looser-es.

    Citizen Sunday, 27 August 2017 09:38 PM

    Again on the losing side

    Sambo Sunday, 27 August 2017 09:40 PM

    What ever said and done he still remains an UNP member with no blemishes so he has a good opportunity here

    Perumal Sunday, 27 August 2017 09:43 PM

    He is dreaming to be the UNP presidential candidate? Oh, God!

    Aladeniya Kirimathaya Monday, 28 August 2017 07:36 AM

    He can join his good friend Mahinda and lead his party.

    SeriouSena Sunday, 27 August 2017 10:01 PM

    yes come with proper advertising and price tag as a tattoo on your forehead to jump ship.

    dharma Sunday, 27 August 2017 10:05 PM

    Saman Sunday, 27 August 2017 10:18 PM

    It seems jumping season has started. These poor guys will do anything to serve the country and innocent people.. ha ha

    Upul Sunday, 27 August 2017 10:48 PM

    We have seen that what ever side he goes to, that side is always in the opposition. He is the symbol of the loser.

    kumaran Monday, 28 August 2017 12:07 AM

    This man should never be tolerated. He did two things to which there has been no satisfactory response. (1) He tried to deliberately mislead the voters by falsely signing a document in Maithripala Sirisena's name (2) He went straight to M.R and joined his party.

    TONY Monday, 28 August 2017 12:51 AM

    PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY OF WHOM YOU ARE CONCERNED ARE ASKING WHETHER YOU HAVE ANYTHING CALLED SHAME. IS EVERY POLITICIAN SHAMELESS

    lion Monday, 28 August 2017 05:06 AM

    The betrayer renegade lair who betrayied his party and its leader best place for you is the garbage dump. If UNP takes him they will reduce millions of votes. Please dont touch him

    Calistus Jayatilleke Monday, 28 August 2017 05:51 AM

    Oh no. Let him come up for elections from the new Pohottuwa party - for the reason that whichever party fields him as a candidate is bound to lose heavily at any election.

    Fouzi Monday, 28 August 2017 06:03 AM

    The best option for you now is to embrace Wije Rajapaksa,start a another wing in support of JO of Dinesh/ Gammanpila fame. Then surely MR will have mercy on you again, and you can become the Health Minister in his dreamworld cabinet. All the best!

    nick Monday, 28 August 2017 06:17 AM

    Ronnie Bugger Monday, 28 August 2017 09:39 AM

    Sorry, sir. There is no place for 'forgers' in the UNP.

    ralahamy Monday, 28 August 2017 10:49 AM

    Wijedasa Rajapakse is exposed, and now Tissa is trying come in as the Trojan horse of MR. The strange thing is MR is still full of people who will creep into the ruling party to create chaos. But trying to send Tissa back to UNP is the joke on MR.

    suresh Monday, 28 August 2017 04:14 PM

    may be MR stopped paying him his pocket money

    TONY Monday, 28 August 2017 06:56 PM

    WITH ANOTHER MISSION FOR MR?

    Nadi Karunaratne Monday, 28 August 2017 07:42 PM

    This is the guy who was health minister for a week when he jumped the wrong way last time. Talentless, fickle and devoid of morals.

    krish Monday, 28 August 2017 08:43 PM

    Shameless fellow!!!!!!!!!
