Hirunika Premachandra, the daughter of slain presidential advisor Bharatha Lakshman Premachndra yesterday pledged she would lead the struggle against the injustice that had been done to her father and would continue the services he had rendered during his political career.

Speaking at Mr. Premachndra’s funeral at Umagiriya Park yesterday she requested the people of Kolonnawa to join her in her struggle of seeking justice to her father. “Join me in this struggle for the sake of your loving Lucky Aiya,” she told the crowds, filled with emotion.

She questioned as to whether her father who was a fearless and honest person should face such a cruel end.
Ms. Premachandra also paid tribute to the others who were killed in the Election Day incident.

She thanked the large crowds who flocked in to pay their last respects to her father. “I salute you loving people of Kolonnawa for coming in numbers to show gratitude to my father,” she finally said.

The late Presidential Advisor’s son Randiv Premachnadra said their door would always be open for the people in Kolonnawa just as it was during the days of his father. “We will always be there to help you whenever you want,” he told the crowd. (Yohan Perera)

    Hirunika has the looks and the guts. Good Luck, but the issue is with who are you entering politics.

    don Thursday, 13 October 2011 10:21 AM

    Aviyen sittinno aviyenma nasey!

    Nimal Thursday, 13 October 2011 05:34 AM

    Your father served the people irrespective of their race, religion or ethnicity. Please follow his footstep and you can follow the example set by Srimavo Bandaranaike, Benazir Bhutto and Corazon Aquino. Best of luck.

    Yahiya-Doha Thursday, 13 October 2011 10:23 AM

    Don't enter to dirty politics? your comments are great. Work with aunts. Mr. Baratha is pillar of democracy of Sri Lanka.

    willowsw Thursday, 13 October 2011 10:24 AM

    Dear Daughter, don't get your hands dirty

    nisun Thursday, 13 October 2011 10:25 AM

    good luck dear

    Sri Lankana Kolla Thursday, 13 October 2011 06:05 AM

    I think you should joined politics. If you give up then the murderes, thugs will win. All the best and you we will support as we can. May triple gem bless you and your family.

    Asitha Thursday, 13 October 2011 06:09 AM

    Dear Hirunika, While we appreciate your courage we advice you not to fish in troubled water. We have so many examples.

    avinash Friday, 14 October 2011 04:31 AM

    May all gods be with you !!! Hiru

    shantha madawela Thursday, 13 October 2011 10:43 AM

    Well done Hirunika, good luck to you...!

    QUIN Thursday, 13 October 2011 05:11 PM

    Aye Aye captain go with the stride... sympathy votes (stupid sri lankans) will follow you

    nawala nihal Thursday, 13 October 2011 05:12 PM

    if you enter politics you will forget the killing of your father, that is how politics works in sri lanka

    Namal Thursday, 13 October 2011 05:29 PM

    My Dear Hirunika , i appriciate your talent.

    Mahen Thursday, 13 October 2011 05:04 PM

    Thats good for you, but who will seek justice for all the civilians who got beat up, shot by the gun toting goons like your father's body guards?

    Sujeeva Friday, 14 October 2011 05:36 AM

    Appreciate the courage of this young lady...I don't think she is fishing in troubled waters as one reader has commented...she is merely expressing her anger and frustration and her desire to enter politics is obviously triggered by the tragedy. There were many examples of daughters taking up to politics after the father's death even in Sri Lanka. This is not new to our politics...Ms. Priyangani Abeydheera is one example who took to politics after her father was killed by the JVP in Kaluthara. Personally I feel she is making a bad career choice but then again she grew up in a political family and who knows she might be the next Chandrika K. but please don't follow lost cases like Upeksha (Paba) and Anarkalie......Wish you all the best.

    Jay Friday, 14 October 2011 05:50 AM

    Well said. Good Luck. Don't look back. Go forward.
    May God Bless you

    JB Thursday, 13 October 2011 06:54 AM

    Go ahead Hirunika, One day all the suspects will be punish.

    hilton Thursday, 13 October 2011 07:02 AM

    hilton Thursday, 13 October 2011 07:02 AM

    Mohamed Rauff Thursday, 13 October 2011 07:17 AM

    very Good

    Ranil Thursday, 13 October 2011 11:57 AM

    Dear Hirunika , please do not enter politics. It is not suitable for you.

    CHAMIN Thursday, 13 October 2011 07:23 AM

    So Ms.H.Premachandra another Ms. Indira Ghandhi or Ms.Priyanka Ghandhi type......

    Bavana John Thursday, 13 October 2011 12:38 PM

    She should be a strong woman. Why that is their right.

    kabi Wednesday, 12 October 2011 09:27 PM

    v.good

    IJPK Friday, 14 October 2011 07:43 AM

    May the Noble Triple Gem bless you Hiru. We encourage your entering politics. But be a clean politician. Dont be misled. We need good young and honest leaders to take this country to the next level. Follow leaders like Dr Mahathir Mohammed. Always do good work and put the country before party politics. You will see the result. Dont get into the blame culture like most of the others. Dont waste your time go forward. We are with you.

    ceejay Thursday, 13 October 2011 12:59 PM

    not only people of kolonnawa.but all islanders should rally round behind this young lady to protest and fight against underworld mafia politicians and ruling elites who supports them.I appreciate your courage daughter.

    danu Thursday, 13 October 2011 12:43 PM

    well done hirunika good luck,..

    Ajantha Dissanayake Thursday, 13 October 2011 08:27 AM

    You may discourage Hirunika’s coming to politics for her own good. That is understandable. But, if all citizens of this country start to think the same way who will take this country into the correct path. Hirunika seems a strong lady. We should support people of this caliber to come into politics to fight corruption, injustice, thugary and hooliganism

    priyanganie Friday, 14 October 2011 07:51 AM

    well done dear hirunika. Don't enter politic. it's not good for you. good luck. Budu Saranai.

    M.V.R.Perera Thursday, 13 October 2011 08:32 AM

    Please keep away from present day politics as you will be corrupted

    Wijenayake Friday, 14 October 2011 02:38 AM

    Had one fifth of the mourners at the funeral voted for y our slain father he would be still an M.P. No harm in trying your luck.

    ellison Thursday, 13 October 2011 02:48 PM
