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.
