    I am ashamed to call myself a Sri Lankan.

    As a person I don't like Arundika..BUT I don't think this is a fabricated story either

    Can't even trust your own mother if she also belongs to this regime.

    Dead or missing Ekneligoda is more valuable to some people.

    One man told an identical lie in an international forum and when confronted blamed "God" for it. Wonder what this liar would come up with for an excuse - blame the Devil. This particular MP has no shame at all and lost all his credibility after he played a major role in the impeachment of ex Chief Justice, Shirani B. It is rather unfortunate that this country is now (mis)ruled by a known set of liars and cheaters.

    IF HE IS STILL ALIVE WE SHOULD GET HIM DOWN AND PUT HIM BEHIND BARS ALONG WITH TRAITOR SUNANDA AS THEM TARNISHED COUNTRY'S REPUTATION

    Perumal Sunday, 09 June 2013 04:15 AM

    No, men, this must be a lie fabricated elsewhere and then put in Arundika's mouth. He was only the mouth piece.

    fawzi Saturday, 08 June 2013 02:03 PM

    Big liar ruling the country and small liars are helping him. God bless Lanka.

    meranchi Saturday, 08 June 2013 02:14 PM

    Politicians are the Biggest Liars in the World. Parliament should be re-named as Liars Club.

    Hurt Saturday, 08 June 2013 02:47 PM

    Irrespective of one's religion, one thing is for sure; the hell will be over filled when the current politicians reach the end of their lives.

    Minister Saturday, 08 June 2013 03:09 PM

    Usually, as a policy, we do not take anything a politician says about our knee. (danissen ihalata ganne nehe) So this is also a fabricated story by a politician. Same policy applies.

    kithudugama Sunday, 09 June 2013 05:34 AM

    in that case there must be a dek Neligoda not ekneligoda. Who knows there may be even Ten Neligoda s ha ha ha

    ban Saturday, 08 June 2013 09:23 AM

    who lie, both ?

    Porky Pig Saturday, 08 June 2013 09:27 AM

    Oops, that proves my late mother's advise. Never lie and you need more lies to coverup the first lie and finally you get caught. This is exactly what is happening to this guy, Arundika.

    Porky Pig Saturday, 08 June 2013 09:42 AM

    Why should two lie, another Pinhead. Sri Lanka seems to have an abundance of Pinheads.

    Grace Saturday, 08 June 2013 09:43 AM

    There is a saying -To cover up one lie, thousands lies will have to be told.

    old citizen Saturday, 08 June 2013 04:38 PM

    Another diversion

    luxshman Mendis Saturday, 08 June 2013 06:45 PM

    Neutral man has proved that he is not only not neutral but an idiot all those journalists who ran away from the country did so because they were hunted down. If Praneeth is alive the government would have hunted him down even in France or anywhere else in the world. When people like you support the murderers, they can go without any fear.////Luxshman

    We like to know when these politicians tell truth.
