Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, in an interview with the Daily Mirror, said that he would await the Supreme Court ruling to decide on the next course of action to be taken.

Mr. Rajapaksa said the government had been able to contain underworld criminal activities after he assumed office.

“During the previous rule, we saw underworld killings. On a daily basis, four to five persons got killed. The situation has changed now. Actually, things have changed for the better in the country in some aspects,” he said.

He also said, “There is no instability in the country as I can see. There is a certain dispute involving Parliament. That is all. It has not affected the country as a whole. People get on with their normal work. Public servants report to work. I travel all across the country. That is what I see. Likewise, we have meetings and demonstrations throughout the country,” (Kelum Bandara)

    Mandayan Friday, 30 November 2018 12:01 PM

    Two of systems: Ordering the criminals to stop and then ordering the Police to act. We know How MR could have done that.

    Are you talking under influence?

    LokkuGamini Friday, 30 November 2018 10:59 AM

    That says a lot on who was behind these activities. whole Sl knows that you guys can do any dirty work to come back to power.. yes yes you are travelling on helicopter from the day 1 to parliament..and the around country. Don't worry..we eat parrippu and bare the cost for your trip

    Chryshan K Friday, 30 November 2018 11:12 AM

    We can imagine the ruling since you already supported Judges and even gave positions to their wives and not its their turn to return those favours. Keep your mouth open since majority is already shown in parliament and even if there is an election you are out. All citizens know that you love only power to portect your loot and come out of murder cases and that you dont love people at all.

    Chari Friday, 30 November 2018 11:17 AM

    Absolutely correct. Courts are Supreme. Need to be patient and await the ruling. Need to mature as a Nation. and Control emotions. Follow Spiritual Values of Love and Forgiveness rather than Hate and Destruction.

    Sofia Friday, 30 November 2018 11:54 AM

    Good in theory if working with angels - not crap like JOkers and ruffians who do not know how to behave even in Supreme Legislature.

    Samson Friday, 30 November 2018 11:52 AM

    There is no govt at present.

    cheers Friday, 30 November 2018 12:40 PM

    Mahinda is the PM and he will screw UNP, JVP, TNA, CONGRESS to dogs

    City Friday, 30 November 2018 12:53 PM

    Underworld Charlie Friday, 30 November 2018 12:51 PM

    Jude Friday, 30 November 2018 01:06 PM

    Is this man have a head above his shoulders!???

    Hubert Friday, 30 November 2018 01:33 PM

    NO NEED pl get out immediately

    Haramanis Friday, 30 November 2018 02:20 PM

    Sir, we support you all the way. The yamapalana govt. was beholden to Western agenda's as we all can very clearly see by their blatant interference in the internal affairs of SL. God Bless You...

    rnald ferdinand Friday, 30 November 2018 02:53 PM

    Game Haramanis - stop licking slippers, please.

    saman Friday, 30 November 2018 04:25 PM

    Your leader dance to Chinese tunes and Americans running our country just a member of parlaiment acting like a PM what a pthetic man MR is

    Thomas Friday, 30 November 2018 02:37 PM

    YOU NEED NOT WAIT FOR SUPREME court order, since you have no majority in parliament

    Ronnie Bugger Friday, 30 November 2018 02:56 PM

    Who are you to decide, my man. Get it into your stupid head that you are there just to fill a temporary void only.

    ADAM Friday, 30 November 2018 03:39 PM

    Yes MR can contain the underworld if he is ruling because the underworld guys are his guys. People also have seen live your thug MP's too when they attacked the speaker and the police force. People know where you belong

    Be Fair Friday, 30 November 2018 03:45 PM

    "People Get on with their normal work", you are absolutely right, because we are sick and tired of the circus and the mockery thats happening

    Nadi Karunaratne Friday, 30 November 2018 05:15 PM

    We had enough of nepotism, white elephants, white Van's, website blocking and corruption, last time thanks. Go home and retire. You are no hero to us.

    Moiez Friday, 30 November 2018 05:41 PM

    People do not have faith in you now as before its better you resign and retire instead of becoming power hungry. Wait and see in few days time the peoples power to drag you and other thugs who are sorounded by your stays dogs.

    Decency Friday, 30 November 2018 05:42 PM

    This is not the way to gain power from a Past President of this country. You must sent an example for the future generation.

    BACKWARD Friday, 30 November 2018 10:05 PM

    " SC ruling to move forward " or backward
