Harin reiterates threat to quit politics

Harin-FernandoUva Provincial Council Chief Minister Harin Fernando today reiterated that he will quit politics if former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is given nominations to contest the upcoming elections from the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

Speaking to reporters in Badulla, Fernando said that he did not expect President Maithripala Sirisena, as the chairman of the SLFP, to betray the people after they backed him at the Presidential election.

Fernando said that he will be disgusted with politics if the President gives Rajapaksa nominations to contest the August 17 election.


  1. President Mahinda Rajapaksa is given nominations to contest the upcoming elections. Now the time has come to quit politics else you add your name to the big list of corrupt politicians. We are awaiting your move to quit so we good see some semblance of honesty among politicians.

  2. We do not know why President Maithripala Sirisena has nominated Mahinda Rajapaksa. The president may have faced lots of pressure by the West. Tell me who can deal with the West other than Mahinda Rajapaksa? Don’t shout not to bring Mahinda Rajapaksa; it’s too late. You should have prepared leaders to deal with the smart and cunning world. The world is too smart, but you were too busy in killing each other. Now you don’t have a choice. Late is better than never. You must prepare leaders ASAP. People like us can’t get involved, because you have deliberately stopped it. I am not going to give up my Australian citizenship to help you. I am prepare to take a risk to make few political comments to guide you, but not prepare to become a fool to give up my Australian citizenship. In fact, I haven’t finished what I started in Australia.

  3. NAK is correct. I agree with him. Harin should ask president to resign from SLFP and UPFA chairmanship. Let them to select anyone they like. Harin want to keep president as a chairman of SLFP and want to control UPFA and preventing MR.’s contest. He knows that if MR. did not come, UNP can win easily.

  4. Harin hold you guns ,the president has made a cardinal mistake,he will pay repercussions later on when the buck stops,the president knows that the SLFA
    UPFA are full of corrupt polies,Sirisena knows when his life is severely threaned he would not trust any party other than the UNP,he knows well,and he will pay the price if he has betrayed the UNP which he has
    we will wait and see,,an UNgreatful President,he will get his turn of the Dice,

  5. DONT SIR , we need people like you, all three above have no spine to make as comment under their name using nick name for this type of comment indicate they are pimps.they good for laundry work. if MR wanted to serve the country he should have challenged MS instead of going behind. MR has also betrayed his men for sake of parlimentry seat.shame but thats thr reality

  6. Please quit, no need to delay quitting. There will be a better person to take the place. People worry about country not people. None is supporting corruption, and we will not let things to repeat.

  7. What is more disgusting than holding the SLFP and UPFA chairmanships and taking orders from the UNP?
    If he again reverses his decision to allow nominations for MR, he proves beyond any doubt,the assersion before jan 8th election that he is infact a stick in the mud.
    He must resign from the SLFP ASAP and correct this abnormality for the good of the country.
