Chandrika Announces Her Return To Active Politics After Nine Years

November 21, 2014

Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga today announced her return to active politics after a hiatus of nine years.

“I was silent for nine years, but finally I decided to break my silence. I will actively engage in politics from this point on,” she said.

“I am happy to be part of this historic mission and I am grateful to all parties who allowed me to do so. I am back at my old home and it is good to be back,” former President Kumaratunga said addressing a press conference at New Town Hall in Colombo.

“We will appoint Maithripala Sirisena as the leader of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party and we have embarked on that mission,” the former President asserted.

“The present government does not tolerate any sort of dissention and their sole response is white vans. There is no rule of law in the country and the entire system is in total disarray,” the former President said.

“Members of the ruling party were prohibited from talking to me. I was expelled from the party on my birthday and I was harassed in numerous ways,” she added

 “Core values of the party and its basic principles were violated in broad daylight,” Kumaratunga said while stressing the need of re-gaining the Sri Lanka Freedom Party into the hands of real soils of the son.
