    Why does Mrs Chandrika Kumaranatunga want to come back to the Parliament? She as so critical about Mahinda becoming an MP. So, why does she follow suit if she condemns it? It proves again that she doesn't have any principles, but just an opportunist.

    Anyway, CBK is with UNP too, hence she will earn enough votes either way. Good luck madam.

    Mr. President not only removing these rouges, action should be taken against them and put them behind bars before the forth-coming elections.

    So many cases are against Aluthgamage (Mahinananda) - carom board transaction and acquiring Railway property. Moreover, he had got bribe from all Nawalapitiya businessmen.

    Sir, take appropriate action against Mahinananda as he earned in billions (all illegal income), even his former wife will testify frankly even over the media.

    Mahinananda will be trapped with the statement his first wife gave, that is enough to put this fellow behind bars.

    Welgama got rich through bus deals. Mahindananda got rich thanks to Sri Lanka cricket. Chandrika, in the past was supposed to have had some taints but was not proved. She is a good choice because she is a daughter of Attanagalla.Good riddance to two rogues. Hope this is the beginning of bigger things to come.

    Madam Chandrika 's appointment is been criticised by quite a few,but this may be an opening for a younger Kumaratunga to contest a future election from Attanagalla .Those following politics closely would realise it.
