All Lankans must enjoy equal facilities, privileges - President

  • 11 Mar 2008 03:23:40 GMT

    [President Mahinda Rajapaksa stressed the need of providing all facilities and privileges enjoyed by the people in the South of the country, to our fellow citizens in the North and East as well.]

    That is why Buddha statues are coming up every where in the East and Sinhala Buddhists are colonised in the East on lands grabbed from the Tamils and Muslims so that they (Tamils & Muslims) will be able to see and experience the Sinhala Buddhists and their culture in the East without having to travel to the South.

    [You could see for yourself the development, if you visit the East. We will hold the Local Government elections, and provide them the cherished privilege of exercising their free franchise after twenty years`, he added.]

    Good Joke!

    [All Lankans must enjoy equal facilities, privileges - President]

    Yes that why - whenever you travel at a moments notice douzens of people are kicked out of their seats which were booked earlier.

    thats why all the appointments are filled with your relatives and cronies who in turn plunder the tax payer money.

    There is no end to this monkeys punnakku.

    Anizam,

    Any President in any country appoint people they can trust to key places. Those are called political appointments. Ranil did the same, unfortunately he doesn`t have any sons and his own brothers are not 100% with him.

    In the US, the entire cabinet is hand picked by the President. Some are well qualified in the area and some are not.

    That`s how it is. Too bad you cannot be a President. Too bad your beloved Ranil cannot be a President. That`s life man, take it easy! Too much hatred could kill you sooner than later!!

    [You must be kidding man! Muslim people, land and wealth was taken by your LTTE clan.]

    That was BEFORE the so-called liberation of the East. Now, the Sinhala Racists are calling the shots in the East. Obviously, you don`t know the real situation in the East. If you are seriously concerned about learning the facts, please read the following articles.

    In the name of defeating LTTE, the Sinhalese are prepared to accept anything. Even this astonishing mediocrity!

    If one looks at this from another angle, 70 percent approval rate of MR manifests the caliber of Sinhala electorates!
