President Maithripala Sirisena has said that he would resign from Presidency after making a State of the Nation Address if he was pushed to the wall, MP Mano Ganeshan said.
According to the MP, the President has said this during the meeting which was held with United National Front (UNF) party leaders Monday night.
“The President said that if pushed to the wall, he will make a State of the Nation Address, resign from Presidency and get back to his Polonnaruwa farms,” he said in a tweet.

Of course he will deny ever saying it! His behaviour is totally inconsistent and his amnesia rampant!

Best news heard since 26 October. However, Insane Sirisena is a liar. Didn't he say that MR had a plot to kill him, and he would ensure that action would be taken on MR Clan for their corruptions.

You supposed to have resigned on 26th Oct instead of changing PM. Now, first solve the problems created by you and then resign.

He is pushing himself to the wall. Yesterday he was trying his best make others feel good about him by blaming Ranil throughout the speech. Can we call him the Leader of Sri Lanka. I also feel sorry for the people who applauded him and encouraged him. POOR MAN!

I think Maithri must be happy that there is no country he has not seen after becoming the President,so he has no regrets as his family too has seen the WORLD and is now ready to resign.

Specially at a crucial time like this, Presidents Statement(s) must come only from The President, or from a source of due authority and recognition. People should not accept statements from 3rd parties, specially when their bona-fides are questionable!
