Video: I’m fed up with this corrupt Govt: Nandana G.

Panadura Urban Council Chairman who resigned from the UPFA said today it was they who brought President Mahinda Rajapaksa to power and it will be they who will campaign to send him home.


“I should have taken this decision earlier. But I did everything possible to turn this Government away from corruption. I have actively engaged in the activities of the Pivithuru Hetak Udesa Jathika Sanvidanaya and the discussions on fielding a common candidate, “he said.


Mr. Gunathilaka said there had been family politics in the past as well and it could be described as a family tree but what we were experience today was not a family tree but a family forest.


“Today the Rajapaksas are ruling the roost in Parliament and those close to them have been appointed to almost all government institutions and to our embassies abroad,” he said.


Mr. Gunathilaka said there was neither democracy nor media freedom in Sri Lanka after 2010 with some journalists even having to leave the country to save themselves.


“We can’t say there is democracy in the country just because there are no dead bodies on the road. The lack of media freedom and democracy had led some journalists to go abroad for their safety. This is not a good situation. For some time now I have not seen any articles or any news criticising members of the Rajapaksa family,” Mr. Gunathilaka said.(Yohan Perera & Ajith Siriwardana)

    PEOPLE WANT TO CHANGE THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE OF LARGE SCALE CORRUPTION AND THE LIBERAL USE OF PEOPLES MONEY. THEY ARE ALSO PASSING THE BURDEN OF REPAYING HUGE DEBTS ON THE FUTURE GENERATION WHILE HIS FELLOWS ACQUIRING WEALTH. THINK OR CORRUPTION WHEN VOTING

    I strongly supported MR even in 2010.Now I think it was terrible mistake. There is no Rule of Law at all. Corruption has rised to an unbearable level. I feel we should act at least now.

    IT TAKES A LOT OF GUTS AND COURAGE TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE GOVT. IF YOU CAN ONLY GIVE SOME EVIDENCE THAT WILL BE GOOD ENOUGH TO SILENCE THE PRESIDENTS FAITHFUL CABINET OF MINISTERS

    At least this man got the guts to say what he wants to say. There are few more in the government will do the same.

    At last... a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel... at least even now, some leading members of his party are glimpsing the truth and courageous enough to follow through...We are sadly a people who are mostly governed by personal interest only and how things will benefit "US" personally.

    dbr Friday, 14 November 2014 03:35 PM

    Well done Sir. You really have the guts to say that

    Where were his guts until now? Looks like he is not getting FED properly !!

    Nawaz Dawood Friday, 14 November 2014 06:27 PM

    You brought this government to power? You must have been dreaming. It was electoral pact SLFP had with you resulted in your gaining 39 seats. However, soon you assumed that you had that voter base and acting irrationally. Following election we saw your true colors when you were reduced to 4 seats, that is also proportionate representation. With that base if you think you can make unreasonable demands to the government you are mistaken. The corruption you are talking is what you have contributed to our society by destroying public property and bumping off innocent people.
