COLOMBO (News 1st):- A ceremony to commemorate parliamentarian Rohitha Abeygunawardena’s 23rd year in politics, was held in Kalutara today (March 8).  The event was held under the patronage of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. A book on the political career of Rohitha Abeygunawardena was handed over to the President during the event.

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa extended his wishes to Rohitha Abeygunawardena via WhatsApp.

Speaking at the event, Venerable Prof. Medagoda Abhayatissa Thero said;

“Elect a set of leaders who have a vision, to Parliament. This country needs leaders who abide by their policies and not politicians who keep changing their policies. Since I came here to speak about policies, I wish to state that certain people do not have policies that at least prostitutes have. This is a country which has had politicians who did not have policies. Just think about those who turned enemies with their colleagues after crossing over despite eating together and forming a government as one. If they betray their leaders, won’t they betray the country? I believe that we need a set of strong individuals to establish a prosperous country. Politicians should not be given room to play with the country. A clean political journey should exist. In order to do so, let us work strongly to build this team which we need.”

Former State Minister, Rohitha Abeygunawardena also speaking at the event said;

“I cannot bear it when anyone scolds the Rajapaksa’s. I will keep responding to those allegations. That is in my genes. We need to create a strong Parliament for you. As part of the program to achieve this goal, I wish to convey the message that we will try to win eight out of 10 seats from the Kalutara district.”
