Ranatunga says politicians use cricketers for campaigns, comments on Muralitharan’s choice

Former Sri Lanka Cricket World Cup-winning captain, UNP candidate Arjuna Ranatunga says politicians use cricketers only for the benefit of their election campaigns.

The former Parliamentarian mentioned this when commenting on Sri Lanka bowling legend Muttiah Muralitharan’s recent public backing of Leader of the National Freedom Front Wimal Weerawansa for the 05 August General Election.

In an interview with Easwaran Rutnam from the DailyMirror Arjuna Ranatunga said that everyone has the right to express their views and maybe Muralitharan believes Weerawansa is the right candidate to back.
