Minister Sajith Premadasa today said that if the public made a request that he is not suitable for politics and should retire he would not keep clinging to things like an octopus.

“If the public tell me to go home today. I will go home tomorrow. I will not cease to exist without politics. This is not something I cannot do without. But I must clearly say and believe that I am on top of the programme to do a dedicated, people-friendly and progressive work for the people. The only thing I give priority is public opinion,” the Minister said speaking at a press conference at the official residence of Minister Mangala Samaraweera this morning.

    Another one for Ranil. However seems qualified to contest Sajith is now salivating with the prospect and knows no limit in talking.

    Better if he used the term leech, if he meant to say sticking to power and Octopus if me meat to say spreading his (RW's) power tentacles.
