Sangakkara says no connection to any political party

Former Sri Lanka cricket captain Kumar Sangakkara insisted that he has no connection to any political party in the country.

Sangakkara had tweeted urging Sri Lankans to vote at the Local Government Elections on the 10th of February .

“Remember at the Local Government Elections on the 10th of February no matter where you live in Sri Lanka bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote. Stop, Think, Vote,” he tweeted.

Sangakkara later said that his tweet had been used by some elements to give the impression he supported a particular political party.

“Disappointing to learn that my comment on the LG elections is being used by unscrupulous elements to say that I support a certain political party. I have no affinity or connection to any party. My only hope is that all elected officials will always put Sri Lanka first and not their party, contributing positively towards a bright future for all our children,” he said. (Colombo Gazette)

    You are ver wise and we respect you for this. None of these people who hold their party ahead of the country does not deserve to be a law maker.

    Sanga,
    You had the courage to tell the people the right thing -VOTE for those who put Srl Lanka first. Sadly there are not many of them around.
