Outgoing Foreign Affairs Minister Rohitha Bogollagama has said he will continue in politics and help President Mahinda Rajapakse achieve the nation’s goals both locally and internationally despite losing the recently concluded General Elections. He says he will continue helping without asking for a post.

Speaking to Daily Mirror online, Bogollagama said that he would not give up helping the nation and would continue his political career.

When questioned if he would ask for a post from President Rajapakse, Bogollagama said that he would never stoop to such a level. “I have never asked for posts in my life. The only thing I have asked for is votes from the people,” Bogollagama said.

Bogollagama made a farewell trip to the Foreign Ministry today just at the time Professor G.L. Peiris took oaths as the new Foreign Affairs Minister in front of President Mahinda Rajapakse. (Daily Mirror online)

    Looks like he will not give up being in the limelight for even the wrong reasons.

    Friday, 23 April 2010 05:14 PM

    Oh Bogols, thank you for your offer, but, no thank you!

    Friday, 23 April 2010 05:14 PM

    Please go home without wasting our money for your family expenses.

    Friday, 23 April 2010 05:23 PM

    I don't think the President will make such a devasting decision as to have you again, on the government's pay-roll.

    Friday, 23 April 2010 05:31 PM

    HE COULD NOT VISIT THE NORTH AND SOUTH POLES, SO HE IS WAITING TO VISIT THEM, ONCE M.R. SAYS OK!

    Friday, 23 April 2010 05:39 PM

    You did do something for Sri Lanka but, without you, Sri Lanka can do much better.

    Friday, 23 April 2010 05:44 PM

    'Beggars can't be choosers'!

    Friday, 23 April 2010 05:58 PM

    Bogol, don't you understand the people's verdict?

    Friday, 23 April 2010 06:27 PM

    GET LOST!

    Friday, 23 April 2010 06:48 PM

    Not a single comment in favour of our ex-FM. This reinforces the voter's verdict!

    Friday, 23 April 2010 06:51 PM

    Thank God he's gone!

    Friday, 23 April 2010 06:55 PM

    You can do a great service to us by staying away from politics!

    Friday, 23 April 2010 07:46 PM

    Why doesn't he just exit gracefully?

    Friday, 23 April 2010 08:00 PM

    Bogollagama, if you 'only asked for the people's votes,' then haven't the voters already rejected you, 'wholesale'?

    Friday, 23 April 2010 10:20 PM

    What a loser!

    Friday, 23 April 2010 10:47 PM

    Please, PLEASE, stay out!
