Kotelawala demands Rs. 1 billion damages from Mangala

  • 12 Nov 2005 12:04:57 GMT

    I dont think a person like Mangala should be insulting a person such as Lalith who has created so much employement and has done more work than a politician. Lalith is one person who has devoted his life to help others. Compared to other Businessmen who only think of Stacking Money to Themselves, lalith is different personality.I dont think at his age a person who has done so much things to Sri Lanka would have such a Narrow mind like that.

    I see so many buddist and muslims working in Ceylinco,

    I cannot help but laugh at this senile old fool Kotelawala. He screams about defamation but have a look at this rabid foaming-at-the-mouth rhetoric about the JHU. This piece of crap is a Christian fundamentalist who uses is loan schemes to convert non-Christians to the facist brand of Christianity he follows. The country could do without religious extremists like this man who is hell bent on trying to get everyone to follow his fundamentalism. He is creating religious and ethnic tensions in society with his screaming and bellyaching. It is plain to see he is a vain, egoistic and self-centred individual. He should be told to go an suck an egg and keep his fundamentalist Christian fingers to himself.

    if you want to know the realities at ceylinco group ask from a well qualified person(will be little bit difficult to find within the group-not from a non educated guy, becasue MANY will be his boot lickers) who is at the middle or at the upper management...you ll understand whats happening within the company...don`t take my word do the research your self...

    According to my personal experience in the lalith`s group for so many years, what mangala has said and the views others have posted in this column is the truth. If this battle goes to the courts I have so much of evidence in black and white in order to prove what mangala has said in the news conference. If necessary please contact me.

    This Lalith is no idiot and ceylinco is not under losses! They recently have invested 10 billion rupees to build the tallest building in Sri Lanka which will be up in colombo 3 in 2 yrs. He is no fool! If UNP wins Mangala will have a time! One billion is pocket money for this man!

    Could you please post a few examples just for our info...???

    Mr. Rapaport,

    Why do you want to wait until UNP wins to initiate legal action against Mangala if Lalith`s desires are genuine. Don`t be myopic in terms of financial standings since Lalith has invested LKR. 10 billion for a project. If you really want to learn about Lalith`s financial standings get an independent auditor`s opinion.

    I said that I will produce those in case of legal battle between Lalith and Mangala.

    Ravi Karunanyke sues Wimal Weerawansa for 1000 Million, Remember that? Then Wimal Weerawansa sues Irudina newspaper for 100 Million, Remember that. So the Royal Collage grade 10 drop out sues Mangala for 1 Billion Ruppees. So whats new?

    Now Mangal should turn around and sue Kothalawa for 2 Billion. Come with some story. I am sure Mangala can do that.

    As long you have a Computer and a printer we all can start sueing each other. Come on somebody sue me for 3 Billion!

    I am open for sueing offers.

    BTW, Anybody know if Kulatunga who worked for lalith Kothalawa is still alive. If you want low down juice about Lalith K contact Kulatunga. Mangala this one is for you.

    HE NEEDS 1 Billion Rupees to build a housing scheme. He should know that poor Man Gala always talks nonsense!
