Please release me, let me go – Mayor

Newly sworn-in Mayor of Colombo, Mohammed Imfiaz wants to be a free man again. He does not seem to like the burden that has been thrust on him and says he is ready to resign from the Mayoralty.

Making a special statement to The Island he said that Sirisena Cooray should set him free from the present predicament of holding a post he is not interested in. He said he prefers to save his self-respect rather than get involved in politics.

"We are poor people and society looks down on us. Are we a hindrance to any one? I am prepared to resign and go back to my old job, if Cooray is prepared to help me out", the Mayor said.

-I feel sad for my mother, whose health is not good. Do not look at my holding a new post cynically,`EE the mayor said. -Island
