Quick results if I am appointed minister of Law and Order: SF

18 February 2018 05:05 pm - 99     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Minister of Regional Development Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka today said he could show quick results in apprehending wrong-doers if he is appointed as the minister of Law and order.

"I will show results in six months if I am given the portfolio of Law and Order" he told journalists.

Further, he said it is not advisable to appoint former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the leader of Opposition.

"Country will go back to the era of depressing media rights if those who were rejected by the people are given an opportunity" he said.

Meanwhile, Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake also said he too will work towards arresting wrong-doers quickly if he is at least appointed as the Deputy Minister of Law and Order. (Yohan Perera)

    No thanks. We do not want haters to be given important portfolios. Your importance has expired on 19th may, 2009. As a politician, you are a zero. Sorry.

    Pimple Simon Sunday, 18 February 2018 07:50 PM

    Did we ask him!!!?

    concern Sunday, 18 February 2018 07:55 PM

    ExactlyYou did not step down after you were defeated at presidential election and your sil was involved in weapons smuggling.

    johan Sunday, 18 February 2018 08:21 PM

    SF will do gentleman politics unlike Rajapakses always take revenge. Because he contested Presidential election they put him in jail

    Dhammika Sunday, 18 February 2018 08:27 PM

    MARA after 2 terms again entered politics and has NOW caused panic . SF get the looters and rougues and their supportes including this man MAX who support them and give them the maximum punishment .

    chandana Monday, 19 February 2018 10:32 AM

    Honour to you sir, we desperately need you to stand against this huge corruption and misleading of people done by both by pohottuwa and their friends ...we believe you sir...

    Mahajana Monday, 19 February 2018 11:35 AM

    Machan Max, SF does not hate you and me but those who did injustice to him. SF did justice to you and me by help defeating terrorists.

    Mahajanaya Monday, 19 February 2018 12:26 PM

    SF hates those who did the injustice to him. He does not hate you and me.Mahinda , Ranil and all of them, their importance has long been expired and they hate all of us.I think SF and Ranjan could do a good job and you and I don’t have to worry because we are not thieves.

    Asoka Monday, 19 February 2018 06:38 PM

    Are you related to Mel Gibson...?

    Ranja Tuesday, 20 February 2018 01:13 PM

    Silly man go home now. When MR comes back you will be back wearing the jumper. Get out while youre ahead

    Bandara Sunday, 18 February 2018 05:21 PM

    I believe this is the right person to do this job. Only wrong doers go against appointing him and Ranjan. Give 6 months and see how they do. One thing sure is flight ticket sales go up like a rocket in 24 hrs.

    Strategist Monday, 19 February 2018 10:41 AM

    Check how SF's son accumulated so many assets in the US.

    persona4paz Sunday, 18 February 2018 05:26 PM

    We need someone to fulfill the promise made to the public. It is proved beyond doubt the MS is only a big mouth.

    gayathri Sunday, 18 February 2018 05:27 PM

    I think SF and Ranja should be appointed minister and deputy.

    citizen Monday, 19 February 2018 11:51 AM

    Give them a chance. Cant do worse than the now paralysis

    Tuan Monday, 19 February 2018 03:13 PM

    These are vindictive characters who should not be given important portfolios.

    Susil Sunday, 18 February 2018 05:27 PM

    Hah hah. In between hard times we need few jokes as well to keep life going. This is a good one. Thank you Mr SF

    Only for president, not law minister

    rondy Monday, 19 February 2018 11:06 AM

    Did you forget MR was rejected in 2015 too?

    Hussain Sunday, 18 February 2018 05:37 PM

    Here we go !

    Sudath Sunday, 18 February 2018 05:38 PM

    That's for sure. You have proven yourself in the battlefield and I'm sure you will deliver here as well. Hope the government will make a correct appointment at least now.

    Sambo Sunday, 18 February 2018 05:39 PM

    There is no smoke without a fire. So it seems no everyone says this and that after loosing the vote. People should have been put in the correct places at the very beginning.

    Lord Wolfstein Sunday, 18 February 2018 05:52 PM

    Great idea

    Duminda Sunday, 18 February 2018 05:53 PM

    Hopefully President as well as PM use the head this moment!!!

    piyal Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:03 PM

    Sorry Sir, You've refused by Sri Lankan citizens.

    Justica USA Monday, 19 February 2018 07:46 AM

    Mahinda was REFUSED en masse in 2015, hes still a cheap politico to be the1st EVER. Person to fall from grace to a cheap guy,,from A president to an MP in the opposition, With this MR BR GR NR YR SR all might be shitting in their pants. GR will flee back to US UNLESS RW. and MR cut a deal n stop SF from meing made the minister

    Dils Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:05 PM

    Good decision

    Ceylon Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:14 PM

    Sirisena,dont be a national traitor anymore.give him this job.he can do it properly.you proved u cant rule the country.this last minute save u frm peoples curse.give the marshal this ministry.thank you.

    kp Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:14 PM

    Exactly why Ranil will never appoint you. Man is a deal king!

    Ceylon Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:17 PM

    Sirisena,you proved you are afraid to punish theives and afraid to bring back their stolen trillions.allow marshal sf to do it.otherwise u will registered as a national traitor.

    Strategist Monday, 19 February 2018 10:45 AM

    How could he punish others when he has issues with his own family members. Corruption has no boundaries.

    Mac Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:20 PM

    My vote is for you sir, we want results not excuses.

    Nimal Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:21 PM

    Give both of them a chance. 6 months as requested.

    Kamal Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:29 PM

    Sorry FM,They do not want to punish the robbers. All in the same clan.

    edward Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:30 PM

    Yes, he is the most merited person for the post and he has the credentials.

    Saman Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:36 PM

    SF is bit anxious now. It's game over SF if MRs team back in the business again. Statement is understandable.

    lee Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:36 PM

    for that very reason you will not be appointed..

    Unchikun Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:42 PM

    Sir, you are new to this ball game. You will not get the Law and Order minister’s job as no one corrupt politicians will be arrested. This a ball game where they are all on one side. You are alone.

    Lion Sunday, 18 February 2018 06:51 PM

    Very good combination this is the wish of the right thinking man on the street.Government definitely recover the lost credibility if they take this move.

    Yes. All other politicians don't have the backbone to challenge the Ali Baba and clan. UNP please give SF the ministry of Law and Order.

    He's the right person to take this post.. Field Marshal, plz wipe out the entire black sheeps immediately

    we know SF will do it and show .Country knows that. But the salaga was an useless minister. Because of him only all these happened

    Do we really want SF as the law and order minister - a man who's vindictiveness and hatred has not diminished over the years - a man who really let SL down by the white flag story .....

    True Patriot Sunday, 18 February 2018 08:13 PM

    MR is the salt and pepper of this mans tasteless talks.The Mahinda Rajapaksa that this man hates has become the cornerstone of Sri Lankas politics because MR is an asset to my country.

    Lalith Monday, 19 February 2018 12:07 AM

    yes correctly said, he is an asset, bcoz all robbed money with him.

    Dhammika Monday, 19 February 2018 07:19 AM

    MR has been an asset to his family to make BILLIONS . not to the country .

    daham Sunday, 18 February 2018 08:16 PM

    That means minister will give orders to judges and magistrates to give judgements what the government wants. If that happens at the next general election unp won't win at least a dozen of electorates. People are not idiots like SF or Ranjan.

    Izzy Sunday, 18 February 2018 08:17 PM

    SF is going to so the job properly. If he is given the job all sri Lankans will get the gd news by april 10th. His position must be confirmed immediately and given a free hand. Ranjan is a gd pick for deputy. President must be decisive.

    Liberal One Sunday, 18 February 2018 08:58 PM

    quick results and then 25% votes for UNP in 2020.

    Nish Sunday, 18 February 2018 08:59 PM

    Will you investigate about your nephew's company too?

    Libtard Sunday, 18 February 2018 09:01 PM

    As usual UNP is disconnected with reality. They think that people voted against them because they didnt oppress the opposition when in reality people voted against them because people didn't feel anything moving forward in the country. Oppressing the opposition after an election defeat is the last thing this government should do

    Ashkaf Sunday, 18 February 2018 09:03 PM

    Right person Right time. if the government wants to re-gain its power back, give the ministry to him. he is only hope you all have. infact we all have. this is the only way to stop MR coming to power by 2020. MS

    Freddie Sunday, 18 February 2018 09:05 PM

    I like this. The quickest way to further erode the UNP is to give this man some leadership role in the party

    Martin Milton Monday, 19 February 2018 12:03 AM

    Is this for real? Is this true?? Let the people of Sri Lanka beware if this person is given this portfolio as there is bound to be a mass of unholy acts reminiscent of a total calamity. It would be an extremely stupid action to appoint this hard edged ruthless person rejected by the people of Sri Lanka at the Polls, to this highly responsible position. MM

    Freddy Yong Monday, 19 February 2018 12:23 PM

    SF is a doer unlike the present one who resembles a lame duck.

    sas Monday, 19 February 2018 12:12 AM

    SF is the most suitable man for the job.

    surath Monday, 19 February 2018 07:18 AM

    Ranil wickremasighe must appoint Sarath Fonseka as the law and oredr and Police ministreIf he does not appoint Sarath Fonseka as the POlice Ministre we then know that a request has beenmade by Mahendra Rajapkasa to Ranil as not appoint Sarh as the Police Ministerwe know Ranil wickremasinghe has done so much damage to the parliament and the UNP,if he does not appointthere would be huge demonstrations against him along Galle Road,this bastard would ditroy the UNP

    Yeti Monday, 19 February 2018 07:18 AM

    If Gota, a mere soldier can be made Defense Secretary why cannot SF, the 'General' who won the war be made Law and Order Minister? Of course he'd do a better job and he has a matter to settle with the biggest thief of the previous regime!!!

    Haramanis Monday, 19 February 2018 11:35 AM

    Sir Yeti - please get your facts right before you write!!

    Appuhamy Monday, 19 February 2018 07:55 AM

    Rejected by the people? How many votes you've got and how did you come to the parliament?

    Appoint him and it will be another nail in the coffin for UNP.

    fareed Monday, 19 February 2018 12:02 PM

    He is a very capable and a decorated general who won the war for the people of Srilanka but Rajapakshes have distorted the truth. Of course the Rajapakshes were there but they did not fight the war, they just gave him political support. He should be appointed law and order minister in order to keep the country stable. For the last three years country has been disrupted by protests and demonstrations.

    Gamarala Monday, 19 February 2018 12:06 PM

    Arresat Arjuna Mahendra and Udayanga. Hope will not be like a bull in a china shop.

    Red Elephant Monday, 19 February 2018 12:08 PM

    It is clear that the vote base here is masterminded by the Rajapaksha haters. Cannot believe the number of supporters on behalf of SF.

    Lankan Monday, 19 February 2018 06:29 PM

    I like Sarath Fonseka become law and order minister.

    Jayasingha Tuesday, 20 February 2018 10:10 AM

    Yes give him the post and let him immediately start on the bond scam case to finish.

    renu Tuesday, 20 February 2018 11:40 AM

    Give SF the job , He will be very effective and will always begin with a end in mind. This is a quality and a habit of Highly effective man. (2nd Habbit of 7 Habbit"s Book, which was presented to the President a few months back. Hope he has read it)

    Lal Tuesday, 20 February 2018 01:07 PM

    The most suitable person to handle, but Sri Lankans are different from others, very sad to say that they prefer not to have law and order in Sri Lank.

    I feel a backlash is possible if vindicative is the motive.. people did not vote for punishment of the corrupt. If punishment was at the helm this election results would be with the JVP at that point. So watchout.!

    Dhammika Friday, 23 February 2018 06:22 PM

    GIve SF the job and ensure all corruption cases are heard and verdicts delivered with in 6 months , BR , GR and that american DALLAS with all R¨s will be on the run till they arrive in USA . This will show the people how patriotic these R¨s are . MR will be shitting in his pants for sure .
