" Mr.Premadasa requested for UDA and housing ministry before becoming the Prime Minister. That is where one can get close to the public. Mr.Gotabaya also took over Urban Development Ministry to obtain qualifications before entering politics. I think now he is qualified for politics as well", he said.
