Give me Rs.100 – Udaya Gammanpila

30 January 2014 08:55 am - 66     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Ex- Western Provincial Council Minister and JHU legal adviser Udaya Gammanpila today requested the public to give him Rs 100 each for his election campaign as he is unable to afford the campaign this time.

“I do not have a vehicle of my own and I have never been corrupt. Anybody can check any personal details or bank accounts of mine. Politicians become corrupt when they start earning for their next election campaign or when they let their supporters to earn on behalf of them” said the JHU strongman adding that he stands for good governance and if anyone has faith in him could offer Rs. 100 for his campaign as he does not have any means to run for office this time.  

Addressing a media briefing today he said “I have faith in me that I can do justice to people if I am re-elected as I do not mortgage principles for money but I do not have big money to enter a competition with the money spinners as I have never earned money through unfair means’.

‘If I take money from big businessman I will be under obligation to help them after the polls so I kindly request the public to help me in this campaign” he earnestly requested.

    KD Thursday, 30 January 2014 10:17 AM

    Shows that people in our country are so kind yet so much more stupid. This is how politicians take us for a royal ride and screw us like pigs.This one takes the cake! Let me ask Mr. Gammanpila why he needs my Rs. 100? Why not just ask for my vote instead ? If you're worthy of my vote I would give it wouldn't I ? Wouldn't you ? You have been in politics long enough to have done enough to just ask for it. The circus never ends and we like monkeys always fall for it. Those fools who pledge money to politicians please give it to your mum or dad. At lease buy a lunch packet for a begger.

    Ravi Sam Friday, 31 January 2014 04:28 AM

    Udaya, appreciate your new effort.

    Guys like you should promote "Matha Desapalanaya" Opinion Politics and reject other cheap politics.

    Good you are trying to be an example in this 21st Century.

    All leaders resort to something new to bring the people out of the shell.

    Somadasa Friday, 31 January 2014 04:29 AM

    Rs. 100 into 1 million JHU supporters, Its a better idea than finding money by other means?

    AJJA Thursday, 30 January 2014 09:40 AM

    The children s good upbringing comes from their parents honest behavior.Very hard to find this kind of caliber these days.I really shocked....

    sinhala modaya Friday, 31 January 2014 04:36 AM

    This is why we need to scrap & abolish indian sponsored provincial system, wasteful white elephant fox JRJ forced on us to make people bleed to death after being scared of indian parippu drop. Only UNP should come forward & admit this crime they committed & demand govt to stop it & support them to do it, irrespective of what tamil & muslim extremists have to say. it has not benefited this country in way, produced more & more corrupt criminals labelled as politicians

    Marikkar Thursday, 30 January 2014 09:44 AM

    Do not forget that he is again a politician who never elicit the truth.

    ajantha Thursday, 30 January 2014 09:45 AM

    Another style of do fool political.

    sinhala modaya Friday, 31 January 2014 04:40 AM

    You are type who corrupt this country, why dont you emigrate to TN to live with latha. just like your other kalu coat name sake crook in parliament after doing high jumps

    Jim pappa Saturday, 01 February 2014 04:46 PM

    Please don't ridicule him, KD. You can't sell even a hair pin without an advertising campaign these days, let alone winning votes from a whole district. As far as I know he is one of the rare breed of politicians who does what he says, and one of the very few politicians who handed over his official vehicle etc., on the last day in office. I wholeheartedly wish him luck.

    Dilshan Fernando Thursday, 30 January 2014 09:46 AM

    I will deposit 2000/= as a help for you campaign. I'm astonished to hear that there are politicians like you in this country.!!

    sinhala modaya Friday, 31 January 2014 04:42 AM

    This time too he will win in flying colors but you will still swim in deep s... as your masters are since '94

    Azee Thursday, 30 January 2014 12:00 AM

    First time in history we hear of an apparently honest politician appealing for financial aid !We don't know how he managed earlier? via DM Android App
