Mud, elections and presidential advice

    Ravi Karunanayke is the only capable leader for the UNP. Ravi K`s name has been proposed for the UNP Leadership Position.......

    What happened to `Sathosa` might happen to the UNP.....

    Gamiya, excellent idea, i think it will do a wonder to the UNP and the country, in case he becomes the next president by chance.

    Mud slinging happens in all politics, even it happened in USA between Obama and Hilary. It`s part and partial of politics. but what we should not see is the violence. poll rigging is the next and then the post election violence. these are the things we have been seeing for the last 25 years, thanks to UNP leaders like JR, RP.

    [ But, in the end, she not only won that election but also went on to become Prime Minister and President within less than one and a half years!1994 ]

    Thanks to Ranil and DBW who conducted free and fair elections. That was the last time 100% free and fair elections were held in Slanka.

    MR became president not because of his popularity but because of LTTe support.

    MR and junta government is scared of free and fair elections cos they know UNP will win a landslide. With all abuses and money and promises, the junta sponsored Pillian won only 2 seats more than UNP/SLMC in the east.

    Given inflation is just under 50% and price of rice at R100kg, bread at R80, one meal eating slankans are waiting to give the family junta government the worest defeat in the 2500 years of history.

    UNP is the only party that can pull this country out of the bottomless pit it has been landed by Sirima, CBK, MR governments. They have destroyed this country beyond repair and recongnition. In part, I blame, DBW and Ranil for holding 100% free and fair elections in 1993/4 and handing over power to CBK. They should have had her eliminated for the sake of the country.

    Now the whole country is suffering with people living on one meal per day.

    [(Did he feel sorry for the Sahodarayas, without whose support he would not have been able to win the presidential election?)]

    And with a bigger support from LTTE/VP. MR should say a big thank you to VP.

    [When she entered the 1993 PC polls fray, the UNP let loose its propaganda hounds on her. Even a liquor licence that had been obtained for a restaurant she and some others managed was used against her.]

    Does the writer imply or suggest that it is ok for a national leader to have a liquor license. Name another national leader who had a liquor license. None. So it is morally wrong for her to have a liquor license. In the end, she finished to own a mansion in LOndon and valuable piece of land in Colombo and other assets of Billions of Dollars. The lisence was the start. Slankans should have paid attention then.

    She came from London, collected wealth for 12 years, brushed her backside on foolish SLPers mouths and went back to London.

    Slanka is back to square one after her 12 years of rule.

    [So it is morally wrong for her to have a liquor license.]

    Look at the LNP photo`s....

    The Queen of Liquor/Bandit Queen is now with UNP(Traitor Ranil-Mangala Vijathika Sabhawa)........

    Also, is it morally right to sleep in the Cabinet whole Govt. Goon Sqauds (Gonawala Sunil etc) were on the Rampage for one entire week totally destroying Tamil Property and killing tamil people in the black July of 1983????

    Traitor Ranil/Gonawala Sunil/Cyril Mathew/JRJ Govt. of 1983 sponsered the ethnic clash via their Goonda`a

    UNP National Organiser S.B. Dissanayake has said the UNP can Never Reduce Prices if they come to power....

    Gamiya,

    CBK is still the leader of sLFP. She is not a UNPer. SLFP supporters like you supported her for 12 long years without questioning her intergrety. She brushed her backside on foolish SLFPers like you, made money and went back to London. Foolish SLFPers got nothing except for yourself who got a fishing boat from MR who was rediculed by CBK at cabinet meetings.

    It is well believed that black july 83 was organised and carried out by JVP and that is why they were banned by JRJ. Gonawala sunil was a distant relative of MR who was protected by MR. Much the same way, MR is protecting Mervin Silva who has attacked even female media personnel. What a shame.

    Rai GONA,

    [CBK is still the leader of sLFP.]

    B.S.....Utter Rubbish.

    His Excellency the President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, Mahinda Rajapaksa is the Leader of the SLFP, Executive Head of State and Government and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka.

    CBK who is a political nonentity is jsut a private citizen who has cut her hair short, dressed in a blue saree and Trying to feel Mangala`s you know what in public......See LNP Photo of Mangala, CBK Triator Ranil...

    [SLFP supporters like you supported her for 12 long years without questioning her intergrety.]

    Yes. We supported her because Mahinda told us to support her. In the South, Millions of Gamiya`s like us just do whatever the Rajapaksa`s want us to do......

    But now, it is Traitor Ranil that has forgotten about her integrity......Traitor Ranil has now totally forgotten about the Train Engines she bought with Ship`s engines.

    The Trains in Sri Lanka will be used for `Sea Transportation` if the CBK-Traitor Ranil alliance wins.
