The extent of the government’s political bankruptcy is evident by its having spent Rs. 500 million to get the support of a person like Tissa Attanayake, who does not have even 2,000 votes of his own, a group of businessmen at Digana in Kundasale electorate of Kandy district told ‘Lanka News Web.’
People of Kundasale, Attanayake’s electorate, are lighting firecrackers to celebrate the UNP’s freeing from his clutches, said these businessmen as well as UNP voters in Kundasale.
‘Sold himself before losing UNP party position!’
“Had Tissa Attanayake not given the way to a Muslim candidate at the 2010 general election and got himself appointed to parliament on the national list, he would not have been in even a Pradeshiya Sabha by now. Attanayake glowed with the general secretary position, but the general secretary position did not glow due to him. So, what Attanayake did was to sell himself before losing that position. When the former UNP general secretaries are considered, Tissa is a frog in the well. Leaving alone in English, can he express an idea clearly in Sinhala to go in line with the party’s vision?,” people of Digana asked to the sound of lighting firecrackers.
