Portrait of President Premadasa to be unveiled

  • 5 Feb 2008 06:07:00 GMT

    If it were not for the JVP sabotages and destruction of infrastrure, Premadasa would have built a strong country during his 12 year period. He was sure to win the next election. He was a common man close to grassroot people.

    CBK did nothing for the country. She did only bad things like making money. Nothing good.

    The best President we ever had.

    He was a friend of the common man.../

    Before Electing to Presidency.

    A Friend of Commoner,India,LTTE and South Indian fortune tellers.

    Started killing all Vijay`s but failed to kill DB Wijetunga.

    [Premaya marapu gana kiyannadda ? ]

    Prema`s opponents are in power for more than 12 years and still incapable of proving one murder against or at least frame one murder charge against. How far shameless can one get in?

    [ Started killing all Vijay`s...]

    What happened to the commission of inquiry on Vijay`s murder? Why was this not a murder case in the courts of law?Why was Vijaya`s mother not called as witness to the commission?

    It transpired that the accusing fingers for this murder even pointed out at the door step of Vijaya`s spouse.

    [A Friend of Commoner,India,LTTE ]

    A friend of LTTE and LTTE murdered him! Excellent logic but do not come out with another crap that Babu was commissioned for another plot but accidentally came near Prema.

    Malaya.... sri lankans who are justifying MR`s WAR approach should support RP`s killing also.... during his time, the whole country was under fire.... north LTTE and South with JVP ...... so, he had no option... just to fight them......

    RP was a good leader indeed.... look at our former politicians/leaders acheivments..... Lalith (Mahapola), Gamini (Mahawali),RP (GamUdawa & Janasaviya)....etc

    but... after RP`s assasination..... only looting is going on in our country.....no useful things....

    During the past 15 years, except for a brief period of two years, there has been nothing but corruption and violence.

    People are fed up. It has just been reported that ruling junta has been reduced to minority in the north central province. Is this a sign of things to come?

    how old are you..?

    Good move to draw the support base of Premadasa towards MR further destabilising that idiot Ranil.

    Ramz, true I agree with you on that he stopped Jappo, (ekekwa ithuru karau eka thamai aparaade, somayatath wade dunna nam ae paarama ada karadara kaalak iwarai)

    BTW I dont think he fought the LTerraTE whole heartedly all the time,,he was power hungry (well which is ok to an extent), and I believe Premaya killed Kobbakaduwa etc etc, may be Lalith too,,many more underworld things and just note that all that died,- northern(ltte, innocent,forced tamils), southern (jvp fighters- brain washed innocents not the idiots who led it!), and SLA soldiers due to all these wars ARE SRILANKANS and Premaya should be responsible for a good half of it!....

    Of course he did it the dictators way, and did many good things,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,but I would bet you even wouldn`t have written on an Internet forum during his time,,,worried abt tyre culture,,,,,,,well getting this fear off of ppl is totally credited to CBK, (even though nothing much stayed she did stayed long term)

    and Sajith is not spending his `GrandMa`s Dawadda` on SL ppl, well on the otehr hand great that he is doing something for ppl!

    Anyway the shame for me is that a terra killed him! I wouldnt have much regret if an ordinary sri lankan citizen killed him!

    Well, my final point is ppl had positives and negs, lets learn from the past! I wish future SL leaders learn too! Dont you think MR and Premaya have similarities and MR is doing better, probably after seeing Premaya ?

    well he didnt leave any evidence..........I dont think he ever touched a gun or had a drop of blood in his hand!

    Well if MR and Gota needs to learn something from Premaya, that`s what they should learn! Leaving no traces......Premaya sent enough ppl to London, but no body got caught! And none of his killings will ever be proved! So lets acknowledge all those killed by him (as well as the good he did for the common man) each year, cos otherwise history will forget it!
