Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa said today that police should pay urgent attention to what happened in Jaffna as the initial stages of terrorism also began in a similar fashion.
“Stones were pelted at police stations and the courts in Jaffna. The LTTE too began in a similar fashion. This is a dangerous situation. Therefore the police should act immediately. The law should take its course in a similar manner whether it is the North or the South of the country,” he said speaking after attending religious observances at the Samadhi Buddha statue in the Mahiyangana town.
“Everyone should be equal before the law, whether it is in the north or the south. Law and order should be maintained. The prevailing situation must change soon. It is obvious that the ongoing incidents are well organised,” he said. (Ranjith Karunaweera)

Since the police is independent now, they must pay urgent attention on Past regime and arrest all looters to bring back the billions that were looted.

MR, You have forgotten what you have done during the past 10 years. You not only ruined the country but also more than 10 generations to be born. You and your rogue team will never ever come to power. That is is only wish of majority of the true Sri Lankans.
CITIZEN Friday, 22 May 2015 09:48 AM

Tomsam Friday, 22 May 2015 09:58 PM

the grate preacher, of modern times.Using temple premises to preach politics.
Antany Peter Friday, 22 May 2015 06:02 PM
I agree with MR. I saw few young people demanding the shop owners to close the shops; particularly they were demanding the pharmacy to close which has been preparing and dispensing drugs for sick people.

samson Friday, 22 May 2015 12:05 PM
Oh Yes, Police should pay attention when the law is broken. But, who the hell wants to pay attention to what you say now!
Batangala Friday, 22 May 2015 12:07 PM
Get the details from correct person and then comment. You are no longer the president of this country. Your intention to inflate the country with the your so called patriotic movements for your political benefits, are very clear.
kumar Friday, 22 May 2015 12:24 PM
He is trying to create racial tension aiming the upcoming election. Cheap tactics as usual.
The cool guy Friday, 22 May 2015 12:29 PM
Those people got angry because because a 18 year old school girl was brutally gang raped and killed and the suspect was arrested but was not produced at the Jaffna court. If this happen in the south those people will also react the same.
rana. Friday, 22 May 2015 12:34 PM
In what capacity you making this statement. Do you think you are still the President of SL.
surangana katha Friday, 22 May 2015 01:00 PM
Haha, what a joke and opportunist...where were you when the beruwela incident happened or any other incidents led to this incident? must be busy counting the money looted from this country (poor public).
Shirley Friday, 22 May 2015 01:26 PM

Mahinda, who are you to talk and instruct police what to do. Oya Awalangu Kasiyak.
Double Talk Friday, 22 May 2015 01:53 PM
You are a Fascist trying to come back to power by playing communal politics. You stink!
No one will accept false allegations. But it is a well planed attack on that innocent school child by evil elements. It is better without any political interferences and let the inquiry go on with independently.
N.Wijeratne Friday, 22 May 2015 07:28 PM
Tell this to the chinese who have NOT taken a haircut-Is this the guy who paid money to V.Prabakharan? If so better check on what took place in Jaffna thoroughly!!!
Sarath Ratnayake Friday, 22 May 2015 02:28 PM
It will be a disaster for Sri Lanka, if this man comes back to a position of power again.
