Gammanpila: I will fall deliberately at rallies

21 March 2016 02:37 pm - 26     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


UPFA MP Udaya Gammanpila said today that he had decided to deliberately fall down at each ‘Jana Satana’ rally organised by the Joint Opposition.

Addressing a news conference, he said the video showing him tripping down at the Joint Opposition rally held recently, went viral and especially some of the media institutions, which had not given him publicity in the past, had repeatedly displayed the video.

“Some even show the video in slow motion and repeatedly. These media hardly ever gave publicity to me in the past. Therefore I have decided to trip down at every upcoming Jana Satana rally,” he said.(Lahiru Pothmulla)

    There must be a technical fault in his anatomy.

    Poor fellow has, at last, sensed his "down-fall" in the very near future!

    What is the truth behind your Australian PR visa? Why do you need a resident visa in an other country?

    Not to become but in actual fact he is a Lanka bean.

    Does a person has to explain so much about a fall? When a person is not true to his heart can make body-brain coordination go wrong.

    Jobless is this what the voters expected from the politicians?

    Sincere Monday, 21 March 2016 04:48 PM

    Oh dear, Is it with these type of guys the lokka is asking the power to rule the country again?

    If this doesnt bother him he wouldnt have a media broadcast about the incident. Forget about this minor incident, we know that you always fall in everything you do.

    Well said, better he skip the group of robbers, other-wise sorry putha.

    This is the first bad signal for you, next time worst things could happen if you get into another stage of J/P rally.

    You want publicity; you got it but not for any good thing you did for the country. Be careful you might loose your teeth at this rate.
