11 July 2016 09:57 pm - 29     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today said he had to ask the government whether it was now happy after arresting his son Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa,

Mr. Rajapaksa who was arrested by the FCID today over an inquiry of allegedly misappropriating Rs. 70 million worth of funds belonging to 'Krish Company’, was later remanded by Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne till July 18.

After visiting Namal Rajapaksa at the Welikada prison this evening, the former president and Kurunegala District Parliamentarian said, "What I have to ask from the government is ‘Obata Satutuida Dan’ (Are You happy now?)", he said.

Talking to the media he alleged that it was very much clear that this was a political revenge and nothing else.

“Mohamed Muzamil is still in prison and there will be more to be put into prison in the future. It is not a problem for us now. We are considering this as a normal incident,” he said.

Now we see the, justice is now operational. It works on only to a selected group and that is the fault of it, he said. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    Mr. MR sir, cut a deal with the current gov for the retrieval of funds lost during your time for immunity. If you really cared about the country and its people, you can make that sacrifice. Help the country get its money back. Then we can be slightly happier.

    Hello - MR- Not only the government. Most of the people are happy - They are not worried about the cost of living. They wanted to jail the rogues of the previous regime (always the presumption of innocence is there) You know why? YPalanaya- Now they have fulfilled one election promise. One year ago they are untouchables. Some more to come - They are on the way.There will be lots of surprises. bye - Nihal Gunatilake

    We general public exchanged the governments, there is a Sinhalese phrase " Kahi Gaani Deela Hotu Gaani Gaththa" nothing changed but the cost of living. Some rule next in Jail, again some rule next in Jail during the rule no one talks,, when they are out of power, everyone talks,, this system is not good for us, not even for them If you ask me, I am only concerned about cost of living,, even if they make money,, who cares,, now I pay more, isn't it.
