UNP Puttalam District MP Range Bandara quashed rumours that he was joining the government after he met President Mahinda Rajapakse at Temple Trees today. He said the meeting was just to thank the President for medical assistance.

Speaking to Daily Mirror online, Bandara said that he met President Rajapakse only to thank him for the medical attention given after his alleged assault by fellow UNP candidate.

“My family and I had an informal chat with the President and we had tea. We did not discuss anything about me joining the government or any other political issue,” Bandara said.

When asked if he will consider joining the government if the UNP fails to address his issue over the attack, Bandara said he cannot comment on that immediately as the UNP Disciplinary Committee was investigating that incident. “It is only after they finish investigating will I make a comment,” Bandara said.

    MR has no ministerial portfolios to offer - Range B will have to wait till november - and then jump.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 12:34 PM

    This is MR's magic. He is very smart . Will MR do this help to a ordinary citizen ?

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 12:43 PM

    This is just a gratitude. But best of luck. Range you are with a real King. Anything can happened. I am very sorry for Mr. Calistus Jayathilaka

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 12:48 PM

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 01:07 PM

    Good Luck.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:44 AM

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:45 AM

    this is the first step to jumping!!

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:51 AM

    I suppose Attanayake can't take any action against Bandara over this because Bandara has not given anything in writing.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:00 AM

    NO NEED TO CROSS OVER, THE PATH IS CLEAR. HE CAN WALK OVER !

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:03 AM

    Ha ha. good joke bandara. we'll hear the crossover story in few days

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:04 AM

    Shameless dirty politics! We are sorry for the poor UNP voters who voted for him!

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:07 AM

    I still reckon that Range Bandara will stay with the party. In my personal opinion also, he should thank president regarding his intervention. Let's see whether we have any genuine politicians.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:17 AM

    so all ground work been done. Now, whenever you want you can join bandara.
    Is MR his childhood buddy, to have an informal chat and tea with the family?

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:29 AM

    This is the initial step. We know what will follow. We have had enough of this dirty politics in Sri Lanka where policies has no say but personal agendas.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:30 AM

    Pay your gratitude is a good quaity. You must do that even for enemy who helped.But whatever the rumours going around we still believe that Range is not a person who goes behind perks or positions. He would not crossover and become a "Traitor" for those who voted for him. He would remain in the UNP without any change.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:34 AM

    Because you have failed to arrange your house.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:51 AM

    good luck to minister Bandara. bad luck to unp voters

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:52 AM

    Range, Dont forget that the man you met had stabbed you enough on your back. And is the reason for the anarchy situation in the country
