I do not like politics – Dilith



“I do not like politics but I had to enter. From our childhood we saw how politics controlled us. We tried many ways to change the future of the country. We helped many parties and organisations and were not appreciated. We’ve come a long way and hope to go further” said the leader of the Mawbima Janatha Party (MJP) – Dilith Jayaweera.

He was speaking at an event titled ‘Meet & discuss new perspectives with Dilith Jayaweera’ held yesterday (June 10) at Monash University Clayton Campus in Melbourne, Australia.

He further stated ” I am still the same Dilith who used to eat roti from a ‘petti kade’ (roadside kiosk). Not the Dilith who does TikToks. We have come a long way and still have a long way to go. I worked hard to bring Gotabaya Rajapaksa to power. Made a lot of sacrifices. He was not corrupted like the other Rajapaksas, so I helped him. I did creative communication campaigns for him. I have a duty to do something to fill the gap left by his exit. That is why I entered politics, even though I do not like it.”

He added “If you elect me as President, we have to establish a new parliament. On the 27th we will be presenting a clear strategy. It won’t be an election manifesto. There is no point in presenting a manifesto, all they do is state what cannot be done”.
