Thissa Attanayake with President Mahinda Rajapaksa

President Mahinda Rajapaksa said a short while ago that UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake had joined the government.

“This Mahinda Rajapaksa can get another party’s General Secretary when our General Secretary leaves. Do not underestimate us,” he said.

Addressing a gathering soon after handing over nominations for the presidential election at Rajagiriya, he said his party doors were still open and people had begun to enter through them.
