The link is to say, The quoted part is a true copy from the interview young Chatura Senaratne gave DailyFT and is published today.

It’s in no way to bother you with stupid ego claims, full of contradictions and utter lies.

Look at this statement “I started my political journey in 1986 with the late Vijaya Kumaratunga

This dumb journo Chamodi Gunawardne simply gulps it. In 1986, how old was this stupid who wasn’t even knee high to Vijaya?

And this too. “As a teenager I took to the streets with former President Mahinda Rajapaksa in 1992 against the Premadasa regime”. Yes. 13 is a “teen”. To be 13 in 1992, he should be born in 1979. When was this “born a liar” actually born? The DailyFT journo has no sense a fifth grader would have.

Check with this. “I have been waiting for this opportunity for about 30 years.” To have thought of contesting elections, he had to be at least 18 years. But to give him a fair chance as he comes from a political family, let’s say he was thinking of becoming a MP from a tender age of 12 years, then 30 yrs ago means, he is now 42 years. Then his birth year is 1973. Wonder where his father was then?

This is his beginning. If he graduates to be a politician from this school of lies and utter lies, he would have no competitors, for sure.

My issue is with DailyFT and these dumb Journos who have no sense in what they write for the Reader. Readers should not be insulted this way.

By Chamodi Gunawardana

Q: To begin, how did you get involved in politics and where do you get your inspiration from?
A: I would like to say that I am not a beginner. I started my political journey in 1986 with the late Vijaya Kumaratunga. He took me into his campaigns and I learnt politics from him. As a teenager I took to the streets with former President Mahinda Rajapaksa in 1992 against the Premadasa regime.
I always wanted to see a change in the way we did politics in our country, so I followed my own political agenda which was often very different from my father’s political agenda. I believed that the Sri Lankan political system needed a big clean up so that the people could trust and respect the politicians once again like in the ’50s and ’60s.
I sacrificed a medical career to get involved in politics full time. Looking back now I am very happy that I was able to give my fullest support to the civil movement which propelled President Maithripala Sirisena into power on 8 January.

Q: Are you happy with the progress made? 
A: The Sirisena-Ranil Government worked tirelessly to pass the 19th Amendment and they succeeded. Therefore there is now hope for better governance and sustainable democracy.
Q: Are you contesting this time?
A: I could have contested the general elections before, however I decided to wait for the best time. I believe that ‘the best time’ has come. I have been waiting for this opportunity for about 30 years.
Q: Why did you challenge former President Mahinda Rajapaksa?
A: We took to the streets against late President Ranasinghe Premadasa with former President Rajapaksa in the ’80s against his authoritarian rule; Rajapaksa would have never thought that someday the same people would rise against him after 22 years. We had no choice. Rajapaksa was going the same way with even more vigour. Very few people had the courage to challenge him. My father tried many times to advise him, he too failed. Therefore, we were left with no choice but to use our civil movement to mobilise mass support to bring about this regime change.
