It is Maithripala Sirisena who helped me: Sajith

Sabotaged by many during previous regime

Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa said he faced many an obstacle from others in discharging his duties as a minister but then-President Maithripala Sirisena stood by him providing every possible assistance.

Mr. Premadasa who was speaking during the opposition leader’s mobile service in Kirinda in Hambantota District said the former President supported him and even allocated money for him to work when others were trying to sabotage his work during the term of the previous regime.

“Many were trying to sabotage my work during the last regime. However, there was one person who supported me. It was former President Maithtripala Sirisena. He may have weaknesses, but he supported me and even allocated funds and allowed me to work,” Mr. Prenmadasa said.

However, he said he is positioned differently in politics today as the leader of the main political force which is an alternative to the government, and therefore nobody can pull his leg.

“I would also say that no one in SJB can oust me. If anyone is out to sabotage my work in the SJB, they can leave the party. I am no longer the Cabinet Minister Premadasa but the alternate leader of the nation. I have got the authority to lead my party,” he added.

“The government has proved that it has been unable to get AstraZeneca vaccine to give the second dose to the people. Plans are afoot to arrest opposition MPs including Harin Fernando who speaks the truth about the Easter Sunday attacks. The government pledged to uncover the mastermind behind the Easter attacks and not to arrest opposition MPs,” he also said. (Yohan Perera)

    Mr. Premadasa, that is good news. It is better for you to join the Gamarala group and let Patali steer the SJB. I think Patali is more suitable to be the leader of Sri Lanka as he passed is OL, AL and engineering degree in Sri Lanka.

    No lost go stay with him!

    Pantha Kumaran Tuesday, 27 April 2021 12:39 AM

    Sajith, I am sorry to say this today our country is under the rule of China. We need to dance to China.s tune. This is what the 6.9m voters who voted this government. You can,t do any thing to save us. It is too late. Only God can safe us.

    Majority know it though you think it's a secret. Also we know the other guy behind it. You may beat your own drums.

    RoaringCreek Tuesday, 27 April 2021 01:31 AM

    Is this man off his rocker or he know his poor leadership in being challenged and know is capabilities.

    Ram Tuesday, 27 April 2021 02:32 AM

    Sajith, can you name one government that implemented all what they said during election time. Did the Yahapalanaya catch the rogues or protected them?

    Demuni Uduwara Tuesday, 27 April 2021 03:47 AM

    MS has double acted in two different occasions. Sajith was happened to be a cat's paw. Think and get ideas.

    Banda Tuesday, 27 April 2021 04:33 AM

    Here we go, you can join SLFP now.

    Sandy Tuesday, 27 April 2021 04:36 AM

    Struggling to create an image through publicity stunt.

    Vadivelu Yogaratnam Tuesday, 27 April 2021 05:01 AM

    I don't believe he appreciates MS because, he is the one who made all the mess.I thought SP is a wise man but now he is no different from others, they all same. God bless Lanka.

    Ranjit De Alwis Tuesday, 27 April 2021 05:17 AM

    Yes, Sirisena helped to break the UNP. And now you also sound like RW-no one can remove me.

    MN Tuesday, 27 April 2021 05:42 AM

    Sirisena end up joining with Sajit

    Hadam Tuesday, 27 April 2021 05:54 AM

    You don’t know politics dirty tricks. He only helped you to break the UNP. The money he gave you not with his own idea but from people behind waiting to grab power.

    Sokrates Tuesday, 27 April 2021 07:53 AM

    Why you are licking the boots of the insane man who is the main responsible for not to prevent the attacks?

    Truth KKR Tuesday, 27 April 2021 08:14 AM

    The whole world knows Sirisena was the most un-popular President globally as he did not have any political knowledge, no English knowledge atall etc., such a person you are praising. Funny....funny..... funny....

    Dose Dose Dose Tuesday, 27 April 2021 08:16 AM

    OK what do you say about Mythiripala Sirisena got a huge bribe from the Terrorist, went to Singapore and hid himself totally betraying all innocent citizens of SriLanka.

    Prof. E.M. Ramachandran Tuesday, 27 April 2021 08:20 AM

    You are a dam idiot praising a 3rd grade President ruled SriLanka.

    VJ Tuesday, 27 April 2021 08:20 AM

    Your number one enemy was and is RW. Happy to see you are being assertive now.

    Mithula Tuesday, 27 April 2021 08:27 AM

    So you don’t have any respect for all of those who died during April 21st Easter Sunday attacks because of Sirisena’s failure! So now we know that you will protect him if you come into power!

    Terrence Tuesday, 27 April 2021 08:47 AM

    Sirisena was able to identify the potential in you for hard work at grass root level but the public seen many wrong decisions taken by him which resulted in his unpopularity

    Pramod F Tuesday, 27 April 2021 08:58 AM

    Join hands with MS. Scarecrow Idiot would make a nice alliance

    Man Tuesday, 27 April 2021 09:07 AM

    Yes, that's true. They must get united for the next presidential election and a common candidate must be fielded after rallying all the forces together, against the dictatorship and the treachery of all sorts, as late Venerable Sobitha expected and fulfilled, in 2015, on behalf the public in SL.

    Issath Tuesday, 27 April 2021 09:15 AM

    SLFP SJB hehe

    Raj Tuesday, 27 April 2021 11:47 AM

    what is your party policy on liquor? operating bars all night long? as voters, we are loosing confidence in you !!!!!

    ACA Tuesday, 27 April 2021 11:59 AM

    Inferiority complex of your father destroyed the UNP in the past. Looks like you also feels same. This is not a good sign. Sirisena also from the same clan.

    Rondy Tuesday, 27 April 2021 03:05 PM

    Cannot believe still some people are praising this Sirisena when he should be behind bars for causing Easter disaster, violating constitution etc.
