​No bunker under Temple Trees-Sagala

26 October 2015 07:20 pm - 32     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Chief of Staff of the Prime Minister Office and Southern Development Minister Sagala Ratnayake denied reports that there was an underground palace or bunker at Temple Trees.

“We were surprised after hearing former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s claims that there was a bunker under Temple Trees. It is not true, no such things are found under Temple Trees. Anyway now we are checking whether former President Chandrika Kumaratunga had built a palace under Temple Trees,” he said referring to former President Rajapaksa’s claims.

He also said that when Ranil Wickremesinghe was the Prime Minister in the previous occasions, he never built such an underground palace or bunker at Temple Trees. (Anjula Mahika Weeraratne)

    No MR has used the wrong tense. He mentioned about the future underground palace that was to be built there.

    MR is under halusination. Such things happen to persons who carry out genocide. Their devilish sins catch up with them.

    No bunkers built at TT, but he may have released a few billions to to a Contractor to build , but it was built in another place..Even MR may not know what happened .It is possible the entry to this bunker is from another location and he may be still using it.Use some experts and get it located,

    Exactly.....Still feeling around in the dark....

    Only a wine cellar with the best MR could offer visitors to TT or try looking for an underground tunnel that leads to China!!!

    Location Tuesday, 27 October 2015 07:16 AM

    Sagara - send Navy divers into the adjoining lake. In all probability this bunker could be under the lake. - with a submarine to flee (as it would be difficult to construct a tunnel )

    Bunker or not =the govt should haul up MR to one of the commissions and get him to cough up details of who built both the bunkers, and the expenditure incurred, and expenditure "in-comed ! "

    Did any one check under the carpets..??

    Access Tuesday, 27 October 2015 07:28 AM

    Like some drug peddler (arrested or killed by the STF), MR would have constructed an access through a pantry cupboard, or through a toilet fitting, or by a sliding door behind the TVs he had in the Toilets (at Temple trees) . Better check !

    Very well said friend.May be the hybrid passport holder knows about this.

    Kevin Tuesday, 27 October 2015 08:09 AM

    Ask Rajapaksa to come and show it. The other leaders who did these bunkers are Sadam Husein and Ghaddafi

    There is no such need to build anything we all saw how MR turned the TT into a palace

    Sam Tuesday, 27 October 2015 08:31 AM

    So we have revealed our security arrangements for the VVIPs next time the enemy will know exactly where to strike. Is stupidity the correct word to use?

    Bala Tuesday, 27 October 2015 08:33 AM

    Easy for media to check who is lying by a visit to TT - MR or Sagala. May be it is very well camouflaged that they cannot spot it.

    liar Tuesday, 27 October 2015 08:43 AM

    We do not know lisres. We know Gsmarala liying on gold horses, labogini and several other, even now he is like king chsthiya

    Santhosh Tuesday, 27 October 2015 05:48 PM

    May be MR taken it away with him.

    knowing how she lied during her days as president, she occupied the residence at fort and disturbed the business surroundings without even having the decency of inquiring into the well being of those businesses that were affected. The occupants at the corner of 39,Chatham Street, were not allowed to maintain the building externally and neither did the presidents office volunteer to attend to it. The result, the building collapsed with hardly any compensation given to those occupants who were dependent on their modest income.

    What a joke, see how these leaders blaming each other’s.

    The God Father Tuesday, 27 October 2015 11:03 AM

    Go to a mental hospital and I bet there will be plenty claiming that there are under ground bunkers in their hospitals. I think the former chief going insane.

    There is a bunker, this was dug in Rajapakses era... I very well remember the sight where tons of sand was moved out of Temple Trees, in was temporarily unloaded at a barren land in St Micheals Road, Col-3.
