Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday stressed that everyone including the Rajapaksas will be dealt with in the same way if they are found guilty of any wrong-doing.

The Prime Minister said this while speaking at an UNP election rally in Ampara last evening.“The policy of the UNP is to not take sides but to take action against wrong-doers without considering whether they are Rajapaksas or anyone else if they are found guilty of a crime,” he said.

“We will catch all who have robbed public finances. This government was elected for that particular purpose. The wrong-doers will be dealt with legally. We have filed legal action against several members of the Rajapaksa family. We will also carry out investigations against UNPers who are accused of wrong-doing without favour,” the Prime Minister added.

He assured that no one who has committed fraud will be spared just to make the party look good. “Everyone should be considered equal under the law,” he said.

Minister of Primary Industries Daya Gamage said a programme to grant title deeds to lands for the landless in Ampara will be implemented soon. He pointed out that the government had been successful in providing electricity to every village in the Ampara District and assured that the housing problems faced by the people in the district will also be resolved soon.

    You mean like the way you treat RK. No actions?

    Jay Friday, 02 February 2018 08:54 AM

    All talk and no action!

    Thanos Friday, 02 February 2018 09:03 AM

    Yes, the guilty should be punished whoever they are including MR and GR, but sad you will never be punished for the crimes committed by you especially during 87-89. The Butcher of Batalanda!

    Sunil Friday, 02 February 2018 09:04 AM

    First treat your rogues.

    Banda Friday, 02 February 2018 09:09 AM

    Ravi K already explained that whatever the PM or Pres says during election period shouldn't be taken seriously. So is this.

    Friday, 02 February 2018 09:10 AM

    Really really ?

    sobers Friday, 02 February 2018 09:14 AM

    Political "Gundu" during election time. These stories are called"Election time favourites".

    Jaliya Friday, 02 February 2018 09:18 AM

    How long will it take before you can prosecute these crooks ? If you cannot produce the evidence hire a private team who can do it put the false pride in the toilet. Due to lack of discipline poor interconnection and communication the investigations to find evidence is not possible.

    SAM Friday, 02 February 2018 10:04 AM

    Its now 3 years. It simply shows you are incapable of what you promised and at now being caught and waiting for 3rd umpire.

    Tax Payer Friday, 02 February 2018 12:04 PM

    Pre-election jabbering?

    Sincere Friday, 02 February 2018 12:13 PM

    With respect, may I request, at least now can you please stop these lying?

    Sincere Friday, 02 February 2018 12:14 PM

    With your shrewdness, you have added the proper conditional clause to your statement. "If found guilty". Who will prove them guilty?

    Leo Friday, 02 February 2018 12:53 PM

    The usual election time hokus pokus.

    Senewi Friday, 02 February 2018 01:24 PM

    That theory is applicable to PM also.

    nadraj Friday, 02 February 2018 01:37 PM

    . Please remember what Ravi K said. He said "do not take these things said during election times seriously"

    Upul Friday, 02 February 2018 05:34 PM

    What took you so long, even after 3 years of rule there is no indication that you are even trying to look into those frauds. If you guys drag things like this, he will come back to power and put you guys behind bars for your corruptions and frauds.

    Chutta Friday, 02 February 2018 06:19 PM

    You have said million times that Rajapaksa is a hora. Now why 'if'??????????????????

    Ozman Friday, 02 February 2018 07:20 PM

    How about you. When a new government is elected you will also not be treated differently

    dd Friday, 02 February 2018 08:11 PM

    WE STILL REMEMBER YOUR 'HORA POLICE' GAME IN PARLIAMENT RECENTLY.

    Martin Milton Saturday, 03 February 2018 07:30 AM

    Never mind the Rajapaksas, YOU also need to face the proper penalties for the gross wrongdoings with regard to this 'Bondgate' scam. The Batalanda Commission reports need to be brought out and it would pale in the face of your recent misdeeds. Best answer to all NOW. MM

    Yeti Saturday, 03 February 2018 07:46 AM

    The only problem is the big IF!!!!!!

    upi Saturday, 03 February 2018 11:15 AM

    Why not put your words into action, it will solve the issue.Hang them all on the green.
