Minister Sajith Premadasa said today in Thirappane, Anuradhapura that he would contest the forthcoming presidential election without fail and that he expects the support of people in the country.

After opening the ‘Se-Dasungama’ - 246th model village in Demategama in Thirappane in Anuradhapura District under the Gam Udawa programme, the Minister was responding to a query directed at him by someone in the audience.

He said, “I am ready to contest the forthcoming presidential election. I need the support of the Rajarata people. I am ready to dawn a new era for the country after winning the election if the support of all the people in the country is ensured for me”.

Then the participants said that they would be ready for it. After expressing his gratitude to the people, he awarded the recipients the entitlement certificates for the houses in the model village.

Minister Chandrani Bandara, UNP MP Chandima Gamage and UNP organiser for Mihintale, Sanjeewa Seneviratne, also participated in the event.

In the meantime, about 70 Buddhist monks who arrived from temples in Mihintale chanted 'Jaya Pirith' for him. (Athula Bandara)

    There is no one in UNP that can match Gota. Only hope is to divide the votes using multiple alternative candidates

    Jayawewa Sajith the entire country knows that you can deliver

    That is what you thought on January 8th 2015 also.

    Api baluwa mokada ochara parakkuwune kiyala oka kiyanna. You will never compete with Gota.

    Lets hope we have "true" UNP leader in Sajith ,, unlike those who duck elections or hide under common candidates and are known to be serial losers!

    Sajith's slogans are outdated. his slogans were borrowed from the era of 1980. he has no proper program for the country. he is a political baby and he is not going to be a challenge to Gota who is favored by majority of Sinhala Buddhists and Catholics. however Ranil's policies are crystal clear and he is a veteran politician. he is in favor of liberal economy, regional autonomy etc . he can attract more minority votes than Sajith and challenge Gota.

    Very desperate indeed Sajith. Wrong move when you mentioned will get international help to develop the North. Sadu Sadu.

    Tamil people would like to know before the election what Political solution he will propose. And will he prosecute those who committed war crimes and crimes against humanity.

    Mm Monday, 12 August 2019 07:35 AM

    Mandale katchal. If you don’t come as candidate will all UNP blessings you will only be fighting and bickering amongst your selves and not taking care of the country and it’s security. UNP is not UNITED and that got people killed on Easter Sunday.

    Mm Monday, 12 August 2019 07:35 AM

    UNP NOT SO UNITED after all

    Jayawewa Sajith Monday, 12 August 2019 07:48 AM

    Welcome Sajith, we need a gentleman, hardworking politician like your father. Not a killer

    Ama Monday, 12 August 2019 08:09 AM

    Hon. Sjith, My vote is for YOU.

    sudath Monday, 12 August 2019 08:10 AM

    You are the best candidate for UNP.

    Tissa Kaldera Monday, 12 August 2019 08:22 AM

    How can you contest from UNP without the party's permission? You are destroying the party as your late father did. There are people who don't like high handed acts and talk. They will never vote for you.

    George Harry Monday, 12 August 2019 08:27 AM

    But, definitely, you are an all-time LOSER in the BANKRUPT PARTY!

    George Harry Monday, 12 August 2019 08:30 AM

    Is there any PARAJAYA PIRITH out there to chant SAJITH?

    Ajith Monday, 12 August 2019 08:31 AM

    Go ahead, you will do better than the jarapaksa team we have seen how they perform already

    Simon Monday, 12 August 2019 09:56 AM

    Even if you contest independently you will win because the masses are behind you. Those who criticize and try to discourage you are those who fear. Best wishes Sajith!

    Janaka Monday, 12 August 2019 10:28 AM

    Anyone who has a sound mind will understand that these people are in a mess, they have zero leadership qualities and confused, Gota spoke yesterday from his heart, very steady,, didn't blame anyone,, no nonsense... straight to the point...

    MODA BURUWA Monday, 12 August 2019 10:31 AM

    We need a YOUNG and ENERGETIC , HONEST Leader . Not pensioners over 70 years to enrich the family circle . JAYAWEWA SAJITH .

    Manu Monday, 12 August 2019 11:15 AM

    RW will not allow him so.
