Basil says ready to give up US citizenship | Sri Lanka News

Former Minister and Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna National Organizer Basil Rajapaksa said that he is ready to give up his US citizenship if the dual citizenship was an obstacle to his future political activities.

He told a television political program that not only the dual citizenship, but he is also ready to remove any other legal obstacle to work for the people.

He said the people of the country should decide whether he succeeded or failed.

He said he has a great responsibility at this time, in the backdrop of a President who obtained 6.9 million votes being removed and a parliamentarian killed and violence unleashed against a large number of government politicians.

Basil said they were unable to step outside of their houses and several properties of politicians were attacked and burnt down by the public due to the Aragalaya. 

However, Ranil Wickremesinghe who they chose has changed that situation, he said.

Basil said Ranil Wickremesinghe was able to resolve the key issues of gas explosions, fuel queues, and over 10 hours of power cuts.

“At present, we are not facing any of those social issues. We believed he is an individual who has the capacity to resolve such issues and he has proven so,” he said. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasooriya)
