I never asked Eraj to go there-Namal

18 April 2014 09:29 am - 46     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

A A A
Hambantota District parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa today denied claims by Hambantota Mayor Eraj Fernando that he had asked Mr. Fernando to intervene in the crisis situation that arose during the visit of a group of UNP MPs to Hambantota yesterday.

“I never asked Mr. Fernando to go and look into the situation that arose in Hamabantota and I didn’t know anything about it. I was in the middle of a training session with the rugby team in Trincomalee,” Mr. Rajapksa told Daily Mirror online. (SJ)

    Now who is telling the truth? And who is trying to protect whom? Remember this is politricks, the person with more weight wins the case.

    Mr. Mayor Eraj, at least hereafter think before you leap. See, in your haste to please your masters you've got into trouble. Regret very much to say that you'll find none to second your motion that Namal wanted you to go there. The only decent thing you could do now is to resign your position and let someone else lead the team. But then decency is the last thing the public could expect from your type.

    If Political thugs can have fire arms, then Ordinary people will also be allowed to have guns to protect themselves from these thugs

    We need a system whereby people enter politics to serve the nation not their own bank balances and status. We need educated, professional people not thugs and thieves. The necessary people will not come from the current political elites who drive away people of quality. An independent judiciary, police and free media are essential for good governance with presidential term limits - sadly these things have been taken away from us hence are current tragic predicament.

    arey wa wa...Now these picture has been proved, so now he is passing the ball to other side. two side foot ball game is going going on. In case IF THIS PICTURES ARE NOT THERE, HE WILL BE SILENT, BCOS NOTHING IS THERE TO PROVE IT. THIS IS HOW ALL CORRUPTIONS HAPPENING IN THE COUNTRY, ABUSING THE POWER WHEN PEOPLE ELECTED SOME ONE. WE CAN NOT FOOL THE PUBLIC EVERY TIME

    Socialist Sunday, 20 April 2014 12:17 PM

    Just cannot understand why people mention the "class", "appearance" etc of his Lordship the Mayor. We are the Government of and for the working class - never mind the education, dress, language, Portuguese name, thuggish appearance etc.

    sobers Friday, 18 April 2014 10:43 AM

    My warning to Namal, is that more you associate with such characters your image will be tarnished. Remember "Quality is more important than Quantity".
