Sri Lanka, Sept. 16 -- There is a politico who unsuccessfully tried to make it to Diyawanna from an area of ancient kingdom fame.

A prominent youth leader and onetime a provincial political chief and a governing one, he had been rubbing shoulders with the high and mighty of the yahapalanaya back then. He was also known as an acolyte of the Blue party chief. However, the Guru-Gola relationship had eventually gone awry turning it into a typical Guttila - Moosila affair.

He failed in the race for the preference vote at the recent general polls.

Highly disappointed, the young politico has now decided to quit politics and run a grocery store to make a living, they say.
