    Sarah fonseka is the ideal person who has guts to handle this ministry.Others are conniving with old rogues

    Scooby Doo Thursday, 15 February 2018 02:58 PM

    Its time for Sarath Fonseka to get into the field and punish the culprits. Come on we need a man with backbone to be be the minister of Law and order.

    Thank you, if you had done this two years ago the results of this election would be different.

    Johan Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:27 PM

    Sarath fonseka and Talatha Athukorala are good choice to handle law and order ministry and justice ministry. must remove foreign employment ministry from Talatha then only she can concentrate .

    Unchikun Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:31 PM

    Good. Now we may guess as to who was shielding the thieves and the killers. The call to the IGP. What was that?

    Kumara Dharmarathne Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:37 PM

    Don't do it for the sake of the party,do it for the sake of the country. Please tell your boss to recommend for the office a brave and straight forward person who would act fast and right.

    T A Meedin Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:42 PM

    PM made these people ministers and now Hon.President has to correct them all .Please do it for our country.

    L.K.Alwis Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:20 PM

    PM made these people ministers without considering the interests of the country.Sagala's interest is in the party not in the country.How pathetic.

    Rohan Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:33 PM

    Yes..he doesnt want it because he cant handle it. He is so weak like his President.

    Freddy Yong Friday, 16 February 2018 11:32 AM

    Yes, , weak, not as the President but as his leader Ranil - birds of a feather if you get what I mean.

    Nuwan Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:50 PM

    If the President and PM can foresee things the best person for Law

    Gobba Thursday, 15 February 2018 05:08 PM

    Good riddance Sagala. You did an awful job anyway.

    Ceylon Thursday, 15 February 2018 05:14 PM

    Good news for law abiding people.bad news for criminals and law brakers.why hinting??.just resign.this is one of the men defeated unp.bye bye.

    Rupa Thursday, 15 February 2018 06:16 PM

    Mr minister don’t waste time hinting JUST GO . You might be a nice man but, wrong man to be a minister so once again JUST GOOO

    Ronnie Bugger Friday, 16 February 2018 01:20 PM

    Best piece of news in a stormy weather. This guy probably got to know that his days are numbered as a minister and has shrewdly come out with this ploy. He has been good for nothing and should be packed off.

    nick Friday, 16 February 2018 04:59 PM
