Hirunika Premachandra, the daughter of late Presidential Advisor Baratha Lakshman Premachandra, said today that she would enter active politics soon.
“My father didn’t do politics for money, and the people loved him for all the service that he rendered to the people. I want to continue the same politics that my father did and will do this from Kolonnawa” she said.
Hirunika made these remarks while addressing a ceremony to lay the foundation stone for the erection of a statue of her father in Kolonnawa. “When giving nominations in future, political parties should consider the moral character of the people who are given nominations. There is also a drug menace in the area and I want to spearhead the battle against it,” she said.
Speaking at the event, speaker Chamal Rajapaksa said that there should be an end to the violent political culture prevailing in the country. “Baratha Lakshman was a diehard SLFPer who did yeoman service for the party and his death was unfortunate. There should be an end to this violent political culture,” he said.
Leader of the House Nimal Siripala De Silva, speaking at the event invited Hirunika Premachandra to embark on a political career. “I invite Hirunika to continue the good work of her father, who did a lot for the party and the people of this area. She should follow in the footsteps of her father” he said.
Ministers A.H.M Fowzie and D.E.W Gunasekara and MPs Karu Jayasuriya, Namal Rajapaks and Thilanga Sumathipala and a host of other dignitaries participated in the event.(ISA & Shantha Senevirathne)

    PRAD Thursday, 28 June 2012 03:32 AM

    Dear Hirunika, do politics to serve people. Do not embarked upon it to avenge your fathers'death.
    We need politicians who concerned about society and good governance. Society do not need politicians with personal agenda whatever good or bad about it.
    Do poltics with bona fide intention, clean heart, wider objectives and most importantly with full of humanity. Otherwise stay home, and practice your profession as a lawyer.

    You are having a beautiful heart too. We salute your father for bringing up a child like you. May God bless you and bless you forever to overcome all the dirty political hurdles. Good Luck brave lady. We pray for you for your genuine course.

    Good luck to the young lady. Sri Lanka needs to have more women in politics. We have better educated women than any other country in the region and we need them to take a lead.. More women in politics mean a better balanced, a kinder, less violent society. The young lady is very intelligent, gifted, a leader and, also very good looking. Welcome madam!

    Mims Wednesday, 27 June 2012 09:25 PM

    She is a brave young lady. She should be absolutely careful, because the people who ruthlessly killed her father, will be sent to harm her too. This is Sri Lanka today.

    Ram Perera Wednesday, 27 June 2012 10:16 PM

    She has had no invitation from SLFP her father's party

    I thought she is going back to modelling. She fits there than politics.

    Sam Thursday, 28 June 2012 01:36 AM

    I thought she is going back to modeling. We missed good modeler since these thug politicians.

    usaguy Thursday, 28 June 2012 01:36 AM

    Your life is very short girl. I feel sad for you. This is a very bad idea. Think about it.

    samare Thursday, 28 June 2012 02:29 AM

    People know very well what type of politicians the country needs today since they have more experience than our power hungry politicians.

    hansan Thursday, 28 June 2012 02:32 AM

    Not from SLFP please. If so we support you.

    Sugath Thursday, 28 June 2012 08:09 AM

    Poor Dr.Karunasena Kodituwakku - UNP Organiser for Kolonnawa. Now he will have to join UPFA....!!!

    jena Thursday, 28 June 2012 02:29 AM

    Girl, You don't need to come to politics to serve the people.. there are lot of other ways as well!

    kira Thursday, 28 June 2012 02:55 AM

    In politics there is no agenda "because". Only public service. Which is forign to Sri Lankan politics. So Miss Hirunika welcome to that country club. Mark these words for about four years and make your own comments. We will be here. You are way out there,swimming in the deep end. Good luck.I commented about this move some time ago . I am saying now too.

    Kamal Thursday, 28 June 2012 02:50 AM

    This is totally wired. It is like the thieves telling the house owner how to put in security after the house has been burgled.
