I will rise again. I have not ended my political career with the end of my tenure of office as President, as some people think. I will rise again to serve the people of this country. I will serve the people until the last breath of my life, former President Maithripala Sirisena said last Saturday.

Addressing a gathering at the felicitation ceremony - Maithri Prasada held at the Polonnaruwa Pulathisi Buddhi Mandapaya, he said "when I left Mahinda Rajapaksa Government in 2014, some said I was smashing my head against a rock. Some are still in the same view - but I am confident.

I feel and see through what some say and do, they are of the impression that I have finished my political career. However, instead I will reemerge in politics and continue to serve the country and people until my last breath and no one can stop me.

Speaking further he also mentioned about the world leaders who loved people and laboured to serve them were subjected to insult, affront, and contempt - American president Abraham Lincoln, Dr Martin Luther King who struggled against apartheid and Mahatma Gandhi in India were all assassinated. In our own country, former Prime Minister S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike was assassinated with a pistol by a Buddhist monk, this is such a world.

The SLFP General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekera and the Chairman of Polonnaruwa Pradeshiya Sabha Premasiri Munasinghe also spoke. (K.G. Karunarathna)

    Who will believe you Mr. Sirisena, you are not capable of telling the truth or standing straight. Sri Lanka was made a second class country under you. Please don't reappear.

    You were a successful failure as president. I cant see anyone in this country requiring your services after not honoring your manifesto and having destroyed the SLFP. SLPP will carry on for sometime.

    Aiyo Sirisena! We do not need a joker anymore.

    If you want to stand a chance then go back and support the UNP. You became the President of Sri Lanka with the support given by UNP. It is your turn now to boost the image of UNP.

    OMG! Your rise would be the downfall of Sri Lanka

    He will rise from a deep slumber, though not anytime soon, nothing to worry!

    Siva Monday, 02 December 2019 08:42 PM

    You are welcome. However you will have to face an election. All your hopes depend on it. The chances are that some other young guy will write your political obituary.
