I am sick of politics: Geetha

27 May 2015 03:53 am - 12     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The opening of the technological science centre of Ananda Madhya Maha Vidyalaya, Elpitiya, which was built at a cost of Rs nine million, was held yesterday under the patronage of Mass Media Minister Gayantha Karunatilleke. Southern Provincial Council member Geetha Kumarasinghe had attended the function and made a speech, though she had not been invited to do so.

The speech made by her had aroused much curiosity among those present..

She referred to the principal's attitude in not inviting her to speak. She said that with fleas infesting those who come to power she was now fed up with being in politics. "Today it was made clear to me what politics is. It is like the fleas who cling to animals. Whoever comes to power they go and cling to their bodies. This has made me sick of politics," she said.

In her uninvited speech she took swipe at those who had removed her name and that of the former president from the Science Laboratory, which she said had obtained by agitating for it.(Chandrasiri Gunasekera)

    Though I have no idea who this geetha is I have to say what she said was very correct. In one hand hand we are taught to be cultural society and respect our elders and so on and so forth.. But the principal here does not at all teach or live by that examole-Yes governments change in elections however as courtesy the people who initiated the project should be invited.Leave that aside totally all this building roads and everything is built on loans and tax payers money matter of fact why on earth should we mention a politicians name at all in the first place??? Rather it will be highly respected you mention the banks name which provided you the loan with!!! This would least show the future generation what was build in our funds and what was built on foreign debt-
