One should accept responsibility for the electoral defeat of New Democratic Front (NDF) candidate Sajith Premadasa collectively without pointing fingers at each other, former UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said.
Mr Attanayake, who actively backed Mr Premadasa, said in a statement that pointing fingers at each other would destroy the efforts made by those who supported Mr Premadasa to come up once again.
“Efforts made by us to come up once again will be destroyed if we kept on pointing fingers at each other without accepting responsibility collectively,” Mr Attanayake said.
“I will not hesitate to accept responsibility for any shortcomings that might have taken place on my part,” he added. (Yohan Perera)
