Outgoing Foreign Affairs Minister Rohitha Bogollagama has said he will continue in politics and help President Mahinda Rajapakse achieve the nation s goals both locally and internationally despite losing the recently concluded General Elections. He says he will continue helping without asking for a post.
Bogollagama said that he would not give up helping the nation and would continue his political career.
When questioned if he would ask for a post from President Rajapakse, Bogollagama said that he would never stoop to such a level. I have never asked for posts in my life. The only thing I have asked for is votes from the people, Bogollagama said.
Bogollagama made a farewell trip to the Foreign Ministry today just at the time Professor G.L. Peiris took oaths as the new Foreign Affairs Minister in front of President Mahinda Rajapakse.
