Minister of Fisheries, Rajitha Senaratne whilst addressing an event in Thalapugama, Kalutara on Saturday commented on his political career.

[quote]My son contested from this district. He is the one who organised my election campaigns in this district and other areas. I told him, no.[/quote]

 “I do not wish to witness my son’s name also fall into that list. We work according to a certain political culture. The post of a parliamentarian is a respectable position. The post of a cabinet minister is far more respectable. Only a limited number of persons are afforded that position of cabinet minister. After the President, we are highest ranked citizens. When we feel that we cannot carry on any more, we will make a statement and retire. We will leave the same way we came.”
