‘Raththaran’ to resign from all political activities
Krishantha Pushpakumara, alias ‘Raththaran’ said that he has decided to resign from the post of Southern Provincial Councilor and all political activities.
This is in the wake of the Southern Provincial Councilor being arrested for allegedly committing serious sexual abuse against a 16-year-old school girl.
Addressing a press conference held earlier this morning (18), Krishantha Pushpakumara stated that he arrived at this decision considering the fake allegations charged against him in the recent past.
He says that the people vote for a politician due the respect and the image they possess and that although the people in Galle voted for him with this opinion, when considering the recent allegations leveled against him, it is a great disrespect towards the people.
The Councillor said the decision was taken in order to facilitate the ongoing probe against him.
Krishantha Pushpakumara was arrested on the 28th of February for allegedly committing serious sexual abuse against a minor, and was granted bail later in the day, on two sureties, each worth Rs 500,000, and a cash bail of Rs 25,000.

We will certainly not miss you Rathatharan.
However, your decision to quit is a noble decision.
That must be a most difficult decision you made.
You were doing such a wonderful service to the community as a Provincial Council leader.
I am shocked that you decided to resign because of the political witch-hunt by YP Agents.
Your political life has been scarred by many false accusations; but, still, you continued to serve the community to your best.
Please fight your battles and the day you return to us, we will welcome you with crackers in the street and kiribath.
A great future awaits you as a political leader; do not worry; eliminate all the problems caused by the jealous YP leaders and come back to us, we love you.
We will all miss you, my darling.
Fight your battles and return to us in victory over dark YP forces, soon.
We will wait patiently.
Best of Luck, darling Raththaran.
Don’t worry Sir,
The young lassies of Hambantota District will miss you very badly.
Even the mothers of Southern Province will not have a friend.
Your troubles have been caused by bankrupt YP leaders in Hambantota.
Dear Raththarang, in 2020 under GR-SLPP Gov, you will be the CM for Southern Province and you will resume the excellent services you provide to mothers and girls in the province.
Our Husbands are driving trucks in Oman and you were the leader who keep us happy night and day.
Please don’t go away.
We will all miss you, housewives in Soutern province.
When I told my daughter that the handsome Raththaran Mama will be not come home at night in is big black car with escort, she started crying.
Ratharan Mama, our husbands are all working in Arab country and come home only one month every year.
You were the handsome keeping us the mothers and our daugters happy. Please dont go.
