Video: UPFA supports Common Opposition’s 100-day programme

10 January 2015 10:30 am - 70     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Badulla District Parliamentarian Nimal Siripala de Silva said today UPFA would not hinder the common opposition’s 100-day programme and assured its support in carrying out it.

“We will not obstruct the common opposition’s 100-day programme. We hope they will carry out it as promised. People voted for Maithripala Sirisena because they approved their programme. We also expect to help him in carrying out it in matters that we can approve of,” he said.

Mr. de Silva said they would accept the new Prime Minister even though there were some constitutional issues in appointing him. “We are not going to raise any technical issues,” he added.

Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa said they would not allow the former president Mahinda Rajapaksa to stay at home and said they wanted him to engage in active politics.

“He is still the SLFP president and would continue to engage in active politics. If anyone is trying to remove him, we will not let that happen,” he said.(Santh Desmond)

    Hulan Bassuwa - than Aney very reasonable Saturday, 10 January 2015 06:12 PM

    So now we will support the manifesto in the 100 days - the same manifesto they condemned. What a bunch of losers, hypocrites and sycophants.No more escort cars, TV time and fawning lackeys. Where is the shortest lived Minister of Health (Boru Givisum). All of them are examples of the thuppahi political culture that existed before 8 January and will be washed away in the next election - they will survive till the 23rd to get their pensions.B Epa

    Fassey Saturday, 10 January 2015 04:19 PM

    Your hindrance, intimidation, mud slinging is enough. Now just sit and watch without envy how the new team is working and implementing the 100 days program for the welfare of the people. Better to keep the fowl mouths shut until the general election.

    modawanse Saturday, 10 January 2015 04:22 PM

    ALL of these talks are rubbish, many of these politician are already thinking to jump to other party for their own advantages. I would like to ask new leader to action following 2 things immediately.1). Make regulations to have certain level of education to enter politics.2). Make regulations to stop politician to change parties after wins/losses

    Can a respectable news media like DM stop giving any importance and or publicity to news related to people like WW and their garbage. Such columns and space could be utilized to educate our young people about real democracy and how the related institutions should work. Most of our younger generation have absolutely no idea about these matters

    kasun Sunday, 11 January 2015 03:04 AM

    This is the pay back time with interest so get ready.

    duminda Sunday, 11 January 2015 03:16 AM

    Weerawansa should stop talking immediately and resign from the parliament as he got his votes via MAHINDA

    Nimal Saturday, 10 January 2015 04:45 PM

    Good move by UPFA. This is how political system of a country should work towards a better nation.

    Banda Sunday, 11 January 2015 03:45 AM

    Yes Not only MR all his family should come and say where the looted public money and funds grabbed from KP is?

    Euclid Saturday, 10 January 2015 07:04 PM

    Looks like Modawansa is upset his handler is jobless. Why not open a biscuit factory and manufacture Lemon Puffs. Ha Ha Ha!

    LankaLion Sunday, 11 January 2015 04:47 AM

    This guy Weerawasa is a nonsense to SLFP. Where did he come from. Please Mr. Weerawa-nsa go back to where you come form then next time UPFA will win with SLFP. GO nd mind you own business with your mouth shut. Mr. Mhinda lost election one factor is you. See you Nimal speaks that is democracy. God bless you!

    iemerald Saturday, 10 January 2015 04:53 PM

    what is buruwansa on about. we just got rid of a megalomaniac and he wants him to bre active in politics. is he in the SLFP NOW. THE SLFP MEMBERS SHOULD KICK OUT HIM AND THE PEOPLE SHOULD KICK HIM OUT AT THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 10 January 2015 07:07 PM

    Weerawansa, Hon. President Sirisena needs a person who could wash his clothes, since you have the experience try to beg MS, you might get a chance.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 10 January 2015 07:08 PM

    Weerawansa I though you would have run away with your master. Where are you man?

    dulan Sunday, 11 January 2015 05:48 AM

    As a priority ask Wimal to account for his wealth

    premalal Saturday, 10 January 2015 04:58 PM

    You are not from the SLFP. So mind your own business. You have done enough damage so learn to keep your mouth shut. Please account for your wealth since joining the government.

    A commission must be appointed immediately to investigate all politicians for any corruptions, improper deals, commission from tenders etc.

    Good things better cooperate and bring pease in mother land. All people united and solve the current problems which was delayed by Former president without out side interference. Easy to solve everything if wills are there between communities. I hope now is time to do.

    Wimal should keep the dirty mouth shut. Now freedom for media and whatever questions you should answer.

    Rodney Saturday, 10 January 2015 05:17 PM

    Mr. Wimal, sorry to say... people like u was the reason for this defeat. people didnt have the guts to express their political views.. tho the 30 years bloody war got ended, u guys left the people to live in a different fear. the excellency Mahinda Rajapakshe was one of the best leaders that Sri lanka had seen... no doubt about it... now accept that this country people needed a real change... and lets not step back. we have the gut feeling that MS and Ranil will do their best.. cus now they r commited. jayawewa.

    This bullshit is to do with the Pensions. If Parliament is dissolved these buggers all lose their Pensions.

    Sam Fernando Saturday, 10 January 2015 05:26 PM

    Very good decision taken by UPFA. Its better and the whole country will approve a National Government.. Both SLFP and UNP should get together for the sake of the country.

    Sam Samarasinghe Sunday, 11 January 2015 08:53 AM

    Weerawansa is on of the thousand idiots ruined Mahinda Mahinda should chase these fools away and think about his political future at leastnow

    Sunil Mohan Saturday, 10 January 2015 05:52 PM

    This WW was barking at the wrong tree , nothing he could do

    Fassey Sunday, 11 January 2015 12:02 AM

    Where is Tissa hiding after results. The UNP "Apala" went to UPFA and finally they too lost the election. It was a real GROBR indeed for My3 team.

    Bala Saturday, 10 January 2015 06:08 PM

    At least Nimal sounds reasonable - Modawanse as usual is aggressive - better he is sidelined.
