“If my father was alive today he would have been 58. Today, on his birthday, I thought that I should hold a small vehicular procession and meet with people not only in Kolonnawa, but also in my electorate of Central Colombo.”

She further stated:

[quote]My policy is to continue with my father’s policies.[/quote]

“I will be a voice for the youth, not only in Central Colombo and Kolonnawa, but in the entire Colombo District. I will work to end injustice, I will work to bring forth major changes to the education of small children. I will work for all the people of the Colombo District, just as my father worked for them.”

The event to launch Hirunika Premachandra’s political campaign commenced with floral tributes being paid to a statue of Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra in Kolonnawa. Subsequently, Hirunika Premachandra met with the people of Kolonnawa.

She also toured Central Colombo in a vehicular procession.
