Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa said today that he made the mistake of commenting on the chief ministership even on previous occasions but that people of Colombo would prove him right. at the elections on the 29th.

Mr. Rajapaksa said all the communities and political parties in the UPFA had agreed to abide by his decision as the national organiser of the UPFA and the SLFP to appoint Mr. Gammanpila as the UPFA group leader for the  Colombo District at the forthcoming WPC elections.

“Certain separatists tried to give various interpretations to some clauses of the Constitution especially the 13th Amendment. They thus tried to do through the courts what Prabhakaran tried using weapons. Gammanpila took up the task to defeat their attempts,” he said.

Mr. Rajapaksa said so at an event held to launch a book compiled from the ‘Pradeepaya column written by Mr. Gammanpila.

Mr. Rajapaksa said he expected even more from Gammanpila now. “He who represented the president, the country and peace has done a great job in the provincial council and outside. I have made the mistake of commenting on the chief ministership even on previous occasions but the eople of Colombo will prove my words on the 29th., at the elections. I believe Gammanpila has the ability to serve most efficiently in the Western Provincial Council, he said. (Amith Maduranga)

    No problem, Mr. Minister, we too make mistakes. For instance, we made the mistake of voting at the PC elections, which are white elephants.
