Democratic Party (DP) Leader Sarath Fonseka today rejected claims that he would leave the country in 2017 and vowed he would even spend his last moments in Sri Lanka.

“As I said when I first entered politics, I will do politics for at least 10 years. Unless someone attempted to kidnap me and forcibly take me away to another country, I won’t leave Sri Lanka,” he told a news conference in Colombo.

Mr. Fonseka said he would continue to serve the people of this country.

Meanwhile, commenting on the proposal made by the National Council for a Better Tomorrow (Pivithuru Hetak Udesa Jathika Sabhawa) to introduce a 19th Amendment to the Constitution, Mr. Fonseka said his party was in full agreement with it.
