While claiming that not even a peon in his ministry acts like former Wildlife Deputy Minister Palitha Thewarapperuma, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka said that the former deputy minister might have been shot dead by a wildlife officer, if the Prime Minister did not take the wise decision to remove him from the ministry.
While criticising the recent tactics of MP Thewarapperuma, Field Marshal Fonseka told the media that a minister should work within a particular code of conduct but Thewarapperuma has acted in a way that disgraced the post he held, adding that a ministry was not a mental hospital.
“MP Thewarapperuma used vehicles belonging to the Ministry for his personal use and one MSD vehicle was used for his field work with a siren added to it.
The modification was spotted after he returned the vehicle to the Ministry,” he said. Therefore, Field Marshal Fonseka said it was an absolute must to avoid giving nominations to these types of people. "He is fit to be a labourer in a ministry, rather than a minister, as he always tries to do things by taking off his shirt," he said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

These stupid are brawling each other while CMC failed to repair a broken waste water line in Kompannaveediya over a month period . These two are stingier than that particular waste water smell!

Who jumped on the tail of Palitha to jump up and down, this madly?

Ha ha I like the way field marshal saying things. No sugar coating needed. But in most instance he says the truth.

Party men speaking out of turn is a sign of poor Leadership R W seems but a puppet with no control over his ranks. All what he wants is to remain leader at ANY COST to whoever but himself.

Why do we need Peon...……Do you have Peons in the Army - I admire Tevaperuva Down to Earth Man. but No respect to any Politicians. Now the PM has started a different Music. Managing Country Economy is not easy from Naya Bara. Only God Will have to come down and Take Action and Take control.

I am no supporter of your former deputy. However it is nice to lead by example. You are from a military background and you are used to a "Batman" in the army. No way my friend, as a minister you have to take the spade and dig the soil. Not move around in luxury cars.

"He is fit to be a labourer in a ministry rather than a minister as he always tries to do things by taking off his shirt," Gonseka said. He at least seems to do something whether with or without the shirt .. what have you done during your entire tenure as the WL minister ? Working deputy is always a job threat to a lazy boss .. it is simple as that and you seems to prove it.

As I understand, this is somewhat unnecessary argument and two different views on the subject next matter.SF is right when we think about modern day administration point of view.Pakistan T. Is correct in his approach when it come to politics. But both must understand that in the polo f2f iCal circle they must talk to resolve issues. Not confront in ugly way of arguments in front of the media. What we can say is both of them are immatured and inexperience politicians.

Over to Hon PM..Country do not need Generals,Marshals and neither Thugs as Ministers. Whereas they should be intellectuals with knowledge of developing country. Current politicians knowledge on economy is so poor they can not understand and explain the reasons for depreciation of Rupee. All politicians should be sound on economy, development, sustainable energy, conservation of nature....etc with sound educational back ground
