Democratic Party (DP) Leader Sarath Fonseka today said he had to face criticism from various sources during recent times because he took stern action against those who used his party’s name for their personal benefits and to commit frauds.

Mr. Fonseka made this point at the swearing in ceremony of DP members who were elected to the Western and Southern Provincial Councils.
“Some say I am arrogant and do know how to talk decently. I was accused of calling some people chimpanzees, but I have to be firm with those who use our party’s name to fulfill their personal agendas and rob funds,” he said

He said his party would not be shaken by the allegations which were being made by those who get rewarded by the government for doing so.

The former Army Commander, however told the newly elected members not to follow the other politicians and not to use their newly earned positions just to improve their lifestyles but to do justice to those who elected them.

He said the recent political gains of DP were not achieved by being on a bed of roses but by going through various hardships.

“We had to be in jail and spend hours in court houses in the past,” he recalled.

Therefore, the DP leader said, the newly elected members of the provincial council should maintain and improve the party’s position.
Fonseka made this point by highlighting that the total number of votes his party obtained at this election in just two provinces was sufficient to get seven seats whet it comes to the general elections. (Yohan Perera)

    we need all our leaders be like this. corruption shall be wiped out and people shall be disciplined to lift the country up to a self defendable position .Singapore is the close example..
    sad to see that our leaders who visit S'pore never see the quality of S'pre politicians .
