    [He said Minister Silva had gone to the Rupavahini Corporation to discuss why the speech he made at Matara on the previous day was not telecast in the news bulletin of the Rupavahini channel. `No clash took place when he went there.]

    Did he really have to go to SLRC to discuss about his speech. Surely, being a Minister and a terror at that, he could easily have summoned the SLRC chairman to his Office and discussed the matter. He could have even assaulted the Chairman without all this adverse publicity. How dumb this guy is.

    I have just read a hilarious piece of Journalism by Dr Tilak Fernando in Lankaweb blaming the Rupavahini Staff for this whole unsavoury episode,

    Where do these people creep out from? do they honestly believe ppl are ignorant of the truth?

    On the whole this sends a strong message to the President and the government.

    Rt Hon Dr Mervyn Silva`s past is a testimony for his actions in this affair. Since there is only visual evidence by telecasting the real scene to the public the SLRC made their point.

    The irony is `if the people who are in power abuse the power, then the abused also will react in a similar manner which may not be legal`. So only solution which is fair to both parties is to forgive and forget.

    On the other hand, if the people in power try to punish those who are not in power it could be disastrous to the government. At present as the war is being fought honestly people have faith in the government. Rt Hon Dr Mervyn Silva is stimulating the public to go against the government with his reckless actions.

    Therefore the government should handle this very carefully if they want to return to power.

    People like Mervyn Silva in the Sri Lankan political arena, whether they are from the UNP, the SLFP or wherever are in the game for the money, the power and whatever else they can get for themselves. They are a disgrace to Sri Lanka. However, the sad thing is that such people have `supporters`-cohorts who are also in for what they can get.

    It is up to the sincere and honest people in the country to ensure that they do not wield any power, but are relegated to the dust heaps of society. Until such honesty prevails, the Mervyn Silvas and their ilk will contnue to cause not just embarrassment, but irreparable damage to the reputation of the country.

    This may be a solution to what you mentioned above.All the good and right thinking people should band together and support a new party,whose members are truly honest,upright and dignified.Most expiates who left the island to escape these problems could contribute and support positively and nominate candidates of the highest calibre,who will be open to scrutiny.I am sure the right thinking people will support them at the next elections and should they be elected to the Parliament,then they could take an active part in getting rid of the ills of that island.To begin with one should construct a web site of this organization to receive all the feedback of it members or contributors.
