    Not surprised. How much have you got and will get. Do not vote for these parasites in future elections and keep off their habitats. Give your spare money to the poor.

    He's just foolish

    johan Sunday, 04 November 2018 03:21 PM

    UNP gave its national slot to this parasite on sympathetic grounds.Better this fellow must go and meditate in the temple rather than concentrating on Politics

    So as per your speeches in 2014/2015, Mahinda did not rob? Does it remind you of one of the pansil pada?

    bandu Sunday, 04 November 2018 02:48 PM

    no one has proven in SL justice system that MR was corrupt. So I do not have enough evidence to accept your hypotheses

    junda Sunday, 04 November 2018 10:15 PM

    @bando. Don't you have proof now? The whole world knows about the coup.

    fgh Sunday, 04 November 2018 12:24 PM

    He's just confused. Try not to hate him too much.

    How can you support Rajapaksas after you have proof of them bribing a minister to crossover!? Are you a hypocrite too?

    Lankaboy Sunday, 04 November 2018 12:49 PM

    At the end, MR will be PM.. that is the end of the story.with our shame less politician, what can you expect. Every one has their own price which MR ready to pay for..!!!!

    Karu Sunday, 04 November 2018 12:51 PM

    RP Sunday, 04 November 2018 01:32 PM

    Great Patriot.What exactly are you trying to accomplish by being an MP?

    Jan Sunday, 04 November 2018 02:07 PM

    This is one of the most shameful political games ever played and played by a "president by chance" trying to survive. He has no regard for peoples mandate. People voted MR and company out and now he has come through the back door. Shameless.

    silva Sunday, 04 November 2018 02:27 PM

    people comment on take only one side. what they don't understand is that both parties deceive people and do very little of what they promised. At least give your vote to a decent person who can oppose his own party against corruption

    Daninder Sunday, 04 November 2018 02:52 PM

    how these monks preach bana to people.They are corrupt more than ordinary people

    seqi Sunday, 04 November 2018 03:17 PM

    Bent by bending the rules....untrustworthy fellow.

    Kamal Sonaddara Sunday, 04 November 2018 03:28 PM

    It's about time as a nation we invite an entity that can rise above this tom foolery. All three branches of the state are corrupt to the core and it is high time the Sri Lankan military re-evaluate it's "neutral" stance.

    Lankan Sunday, 04 November 2018 03:33 PM

    Pujyathumane, read the Times of India headlines for the latest updates.Your decision may be wrong

    Hiran Sunday, 04 November 2018 03:41 PM

    What a strange land we live in, the thera ripped apart the MR clan with his fiery speeches during the last Presidential election ,but now wants to support him? Love to hear the logic behind the decision.

    Jaliya Sunday, 04 November 2018 03:54 PM

    I have never commented in any news article where a religious figure is involved, belonging to any religion. This however I must say is something that is worth the spare two cents. religious figures like this monk should never be engaged in politics that is not a part of Buddhism I know of. It certainly is an insult to not only the Buddhism but to all followers as well. If you chose to engage in politics please disrobe. True philosophy of Buddhism shall not select a single person over another nor it applies to an entire organization over the other, they shall all be equal. Therefore, whatever is said by the monk didn't come from a religious figure .. it came from a another rogue in a robe.

    It is high time that we burn all the Ganayas and feed on the meat at a barbecue.

    Moiez Sunday, 04 November 2018 03:54 PM

    Never trust this saffron robed thero.

    Unchikun Sunday, 04 November 2018 06:40 PM

    Dhammika Sunday, 04 November 2018 08:23 PM

    You have insulted a great religion BUDDISM . Please DIS robe yourself . Your DECISION could lead to CHAOS like what MS has done ! .

    GH Monday, 05 November 2018 09:33 AM

    A Patriotic Ven. Thera, we appreciate you Ven. Thera.

    Ghost Monday, 05 November 2018 12:26 PM

    Go join BBS, they need a double depathnaya very badly!!!

    Gemunu Monday, 05 November 2018 10:11 AM

    You are a pathatic monk, disgraceful politician and very low human being.

    Common sense Monday, 05 November 2018 12:49 PM

    Sick. You are supporting someone who is claiming the war victory as if it was his own while jailing and killing anyone who questions him. He has built a mafia state which he does not want to lose control over or his crimes will be exposed.
