She was appointed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa the SLFP Organiser for Colombo Central on Sunday (12). She is expected to contest the forthcoming Western Provincial Council Election scheduled for end March.

Hirunika told The Island that she was happy to have met President Rajapaksa after about two years to discuss various matters pertaining to her life, political aspirations etc. She said that certain persons had caused a rift between her and President Rajapaksa but it had been sorted out.

Among the others present at the discussions were Hirunika’s mother Sumana, first lady Shiranthi, Hambantota District Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa and his brother Yoshitha.

Hirunika entered politics in 2012 from the Sri Lanka Mahajana Party (SLMP) after her father’s killing.
