President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday told the Lankadeepa that searching UPFA MP Kumar Welgama’s garden for illegally keeping bulletproof vehicles was an immature act.

The President said the government was inconvenienced due to such immature acts.

“Whatever people say, I should say that it is an immature act,” he said.

President Sirisena said if police received information about keeping government vehicles illegally, there were ample methods and technical apparatus to search for them without engaging in immature acts.

He said such technical apparatus were available at the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau.

The President said he was not aware if it was done by the CID or the FCID and added that whoever did it, police came to disrepute for doing so.

He said what would happen at the end is people would just laugh at such acts.(Ajantha Kumara Agalakada)

    I think the president is immature to jump on every incident.

    Concerned Citizen Thursday, 20 October 2016 11:33 AM

    It is an immature act.And its high time the President steps in and sets his tone. Yea we want independent investigations. But these are silly. Searching for bullet proof vehicles at his residence.

    Police have powers to check anybody with courts permission.

    President is the Head of Government and if things are on wrong track then he should call up PM, Minister, Head of Police and teach them.

    Why president is interfering with court orders it is contempt of court or is he trying to get points from welgama

    before searching for bullet proof cars...please check how this walgama guy bought 400 acre land...!!

    lmmature president makes immature statements.

    vithura Thursday, 20 October 2016 02:21 PM

    Why is the President commenting on operational matters of an agency, that should be the concern of the responsible minister of his cabinet. By getting involved in such non-strategic matters, not only is he demeaning the office of the President, but also risks being accused of partisanship.

    Valan Thursday, 20 October 2016 02:26 PM

    If there is a court case against Mr Welgama, the judge might ask the police whether they checked his residence and if not, the case might be dismissed. I am not legal expert but a possibility. I think the president is beginning to put his party before the country!

    DillonDP Thursday, 20 October 2016 02:27 PM

    Biggest Baby is Mithri,,, where he claims to no knowledge of anything????

    SF Thursday, 20 October 2016 02:32 PM

    President ordered Police to fire every vehicle in Mathugama area to identify whether they are bulletproof or not.

    position and status of presidency erodes rapidly the way the president is behaving.

    ali Thursday, 20 October 2016 03:01 PM

    The President doesn't interfere, but only comments on shortcomings of authorities as an average citizen -A very good example to show how effective "Good Governance" is.

    Yeti Friday, 21 October 2016 08:19 AM

    Like asking the minister if he had any illegal bullet proof vehicles stashed away in his vast estate?????

    Yeti Friday, 21 October 2016 08:21 AM

    If he did have any such vehicles where would he hide them, in his garage???

    JKH Thursday, 20 October 2016 03:57 PM

    The President is starting to interfere with the supposedly independent commissions... It's not a good sign for the country!

    dhanu Thursday, 20 October 2016 04:27 PM

    here go again! Remarks 2, another lullaby for JO from president.

    ajantha Friday, 21 October 2016 08:33 AM

    People do not trust you anymore. If it is immature as the head of state you stop it. You have become a joker and headless of state. So pathetic

    Dee Thursday, 20 October 2016 04:33 PM

    Yes. Now we see lots of immaturity.

    Ruwi Thursday, 20 October 2016 04:35 PM

    I think this is a deliberate and well planned statement to derail the JO. If JO agrees with what MY3 says on this issue that means JO is happy about the leniency of MY3 and FCID. If JO disagrees that means JO wants crooks on their side to be taken to task and there are many crooks. FCID is doing a GREAT JOB.

    The entire Yahapalanaya is immature.

    Why did the President not use these available equipment as soon as he won the election to find the Lamborghini vehicles that he said the Rajapakse's owned?

    ..instead of first going public?!

    Lankan Thursday, 20 October 2016 04:49 PM

    Why did the President not use these equipment to locate the Lamborghini that Rajapakse's owned when he was elected the President?

    gamaati Thursday, 20 October 2016 04:51 PM

    This is a message to police not to interfere with privileged politicians.

    Rasheed Friday, 21 October 2016 09:03 AM

    Yes, he is trying to become like MR

    Balata Thursday, 20 October 2016 04:55 PM

    Yes. It was a 400 acre estate! So a good place to search
