Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa quipped yesterday that in the reshuffle of the Cabinet, the only Ministry that underwent a scientific transformation was the Wildlife Ministry.
He said further that the Wildlife Ministry had undergone a biological transformation with which and sensing the arrival of the new Minister the Deer and Sambhur living in the jungles had started to flee.
Mahinda Rajapaksa made this remark in reply to a question posed by a journalist at a religious function held at the Abayaramaya temple in Narahenpita yesterday.
The subject of Wildlife was given to Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka along with the subjects of Sustainable development and Regional Development at the Yesterday's Cabinet reshuffle. (Nalaka Sanjeewa Dahanayake)

Mr MR be careful, SF is given the correct ministry to catch animals like you.
Ronnie Bugger Wednesday, 02 May 2018 01:54 PM
Unfortunately, the man this man is referring to has been given the wrong job. Had he been given the portfolio for which he is most suitable, all the wild animals in the Jokers' Organization (JO) including this man will have no place to hide.

Lion Wednesday, 02 May 2018 02:44 PM
Boy you would have run for your life if Sf has got hold of the ministry of law and order.

HE WAS A BEST ARMY COMMANDER, NOW HE WILL SAFEGUARD ELEPHANTS, ANIMALS LIVING IN FOREST. THROUGH THIS EXPERIENCE HE WILL BE GIVEN LAW AND ORDER THEN HE WILL HUNT CAPTAINS OF THIEVES, LATER HE WILL WILL BE GIVEN PRISON REFORM THEN THOSE HORAS WILL BE GIVEN GOOD LESSONS.
Dhammika Wednesday, 02 May 2018 05:45 PM

Ralahamy Thursday, 03 May 2018 07:21 AM
Life cycle keeps moving according to Lord Buddha. MR is the declining further through his utterance of frustration and SF is rising with his crypt statements to media.

Sarath, you are a great politician with a strong backbone. All the corrupt politicians are not happy and making all these remarks. Just ignore. We are always with you.
Lal.Fernando. Thursday, 03 May 2018 04:42 AM
Dear EX President Mr. Rajapakse, when you talk please talk as a intelligent individual.Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka, will do a great job allocated to him.He got great qualities, and he is a gentleman. Mr. Rajapakse why don't you mind your own buisness and behave like a gentleman. I do not think you know the meaning of a gentleman.
