Transport and Civil Aviation Minister Nimal Siripala De Silva said today that he would soon retire from politics as he didn’t have an intention of hanging on to power like many other politicians.

Speaking at a rally in Badulla, he said that there was a need of new political culture without family political agendas.

Emphasizing the need of youth participation in politics, he said that the country was desperately in need of young generation’s participation in politics.

The Minister said he was able to develop Uva-Wellassa and hand it over to the people.

“We don’t have an intention to make family trees in politics and to create successors. I don’t have any blood relatives in this field,” he said.

He said that though he wouldn’t continue in politics, he would be continue to groom good leaders capable in carrying on the development process in the Uva Province for decades to come. (Palitha Ariyawansa)
