Former North-Central Province Chief Minister Berty Premalal Dissanayake said he had instructed the 120 provincial councillors who were prepared to support him for the post of chief minister to withdraw their affidavits.

“They are all quite young and have a long way to go in the field of politics. I do not wish to abandon them by encouraging them to resign over this issue which I consider is a grave injustice done upon them,” Mr.Dissanayake told Daily Mirror.

He said he would not accept any Cabinet or non-Cabinet portfolio in the provincial council and would remain an ordinary provincial councillor. (Lakna Paranamanna)

    peeda mossa Wednesday, 26 September 2012 01:48 PM

    Learn to be graceful in defeat. You don't have to be CM or even a councillor to serve the people. Follow the example set by great men like Vinoba Bhave and Dr A.T.Ariyaratne who served the humanity without holding public office.

    kapa ta pissu Wednesday, 26 September 2012 02:17 PM

    Trehan Munasinghe Wednesday, 26 September 2012 06:16 PM

    This is the power of someone at the top... We all know who that is... Berty tried his luck , but he can't play with Lokka.... Typical anyway its good the people realised that he is just Garbage...

    acord Wednesday, 26 September 2012 06:51 PM

    of cos all the lankans are damn nuts...cos they forgets everything in 2 weeks.....

    Sapumal Bandara Wednesday, 26 September 2012 10:21 AM

    Somebody should file a election petition against Berty so that he would loose not only his Provincial Council Membership, but also his Civic Rights for a minimum of 25 years for the Election Law violations and for abusing Public Property for Electioneering.

    Achari Wednesday, 26 September 2012 10:22 AM

    These guys think we are damn nuts.

    lankaputha Wednesday, 26 September 2012 10:24 AM
