Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga extended support to General Sarath Fonseka at Horagolla a short while ago. The General traveled to Horagolla this morning to meet Mrs. Kumaratunga. Meanwhile a bus carrying a group of journalists who were on their way to cover the event was detained by police.

    A wise decision. Now or never is our motto. So we will have the change on 26th January.

    Invalid note(CBK) + Counterfieit note(SF)

    Excellent... what ever you UNPers say this will only reduce the number of votes Sarath F. gets..!! People hate her so much!!

    Piliticians can entertain jokers but general public can not & can not be fooled.

    Sharmini, didn't you adulate her during her tenure? You voted for her twice, right? She became your heroine when she dismissed RW's Government, right? So, why this hypocrisy?

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 04:59 AM

    She is talking of corruption in the goverment what about her doings? People had to face increases in Gas prices during her regime. This can be the biggest blunder for SF

    She was against MR even in 2005 November election. There is nothing new.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:34 AM

    I think SF want to break PCK 's record of most courrapted president in sri lanka. Better her advice to be helped to achive his targets.

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 12:40 PM

    # mam i like your leadership

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:16 PM

    I feel very sorry for the people around them. After the election CBK and Mangi will fly to UK. SF will go to USA. What about others, they will have to be in Sri Lanka to face all the discriminations.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:39 AM

    thankyou chandrika for pleging your support for corrupt SF this will help MR to increase is votes. please do another favaour on 27 th take your boot licking mangala with you when you are leaveing sri lanka

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:39 AM

    Jana, wake up my friend, the whole country is voting for SF

    Monday, 25 January 2010 09:51 AM

    why to CBK couldn't appoint as a army commander if he is so good ??

    Monday, 25 January 2010 09:53 AM

    Why CBK couldn't appoint as army commander. if he is so good for her ??

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:48 AM

    ok.. SF would have been in the lead, but his "kalawadda" was the turning point. and now CBK, THIS is the confirmation of MRs WIN

    Monday, 25 January 2010 09:54 AM

    yes fantastic , but u can see fantastic act after he got elected ;)

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:38 PM

    I think this will not win votes for SF but will loose thousands of votes.I cant understand why SF had to go behind the worst and most unpopular president in hour history.People doesnt want to hear her name and truely she was instrumental in destroying this country.

    She is just a joke for the Sri Lankans.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:50 AM

    General, forge her, but dont forget the Water's Edge deal. Dont let her play any role in governance.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:53 AM

    Another wrong decision as always was the case with her. She is incorrigible.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:47 PM

    The People of Sri Lanka are not fools to take a huge risk with an unknown candidate for a position with unlimited powers.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:04 AM

    Okkoma kunu bengaala bokkata lu ne :P

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:09 AM

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:00 AM

    ungreatful woman of the year!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 02:15 PM

    What is fantastic?This ungratefulness.The Rajapakse's have supported the Bandaranaike's for generations and this how CBK is reciprocating.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 05:49 AM

    Ha Ha Ha ... Birds of a feather Flock together. she is the Queen of corruption!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 05:50 AM

    Chora Rajina (bandit queen) joins commission king (SF) to eradicate corruption.
    Another 100000 votes more to MR when Chandrika support SF.
    People of this country hate Chandrika so much (both UNP, JVP and SLFP) whoever she supports decline his votes.
    Last nail on SF coffin.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 02:29 PM

    well done madam .. but was it little too late ..lets see on 27 th

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:16 AM

    chaura rajiniya joins with king of hatred.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:50 AM

    You could have won without her - she is just extra baggage - please don't forget her corrupt deals when you win but investigate them too - please please please. Just clean up all the muck of the past fifteen years. Good Luck.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:02 AM

    This what Sri Lanka wants’ everyone to get to gather to make our country prospers by supporting SF all in the country WIN’s .
    She is a true patriot and she has always been one,…..

    Sunday, 24 January 2010 07:43 AM

    Next it would be MR!!!!! Haha :) Well done SF!!!!

    Sunday, 24 January 2010 07:44 AM

    This is fantastic

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:30 AM

    Only the deaf & blind will vote for SF,

    Sunday, 24 January 2010 07:46 AM

    Under the Chinthanaya, all those visiting Horagolla, are "Hora Gollos" as there is no Bandaranaike in SLFP now and it is now Rajapakses' personal sole property. So either those visitors are stoned by the hooligans or stopped by the Police. Chandrika's support to Mangala's wing is no secret from inception but to what extent it will help SF is a question mark.

    Sunday, 24 January 2010 07:48 AM

    SF's majority will extended by another 2 laks

    Sunday, 24 January 2010 07:48 AM

    at last she made one correct decision in her life

    Sunday, 24 January 2010 07:50 AM


    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:37 AM

    Ha haaa.....Now the team is complete (the team who are going to betray our country ).

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:21 AM

    I think MR has bought all the remaining palaces in the UK

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:40 AM

    Thank you for joining SF. Chandrika is hated by the sri Lankan citizens that whoever embrazes her will lose the election without doubt. Remember how she ran the country? Partying late in to the night then getting late by 4-5 hours for important meeting, so much so the baby elephant who was waiting to greet her at the Dalanda Maligawa fell asleep remember?? Then the warter's edge, Insurance,etc etc. She was the one who didnt want SF as her comander during her tenure and it was MR who gave SF all that he is boasting about and now the two most ungrateful human beings are together, Thank you for losing votes for SF!!!!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:27 AM

    Dont insult the hearing impaired and the visually impaired. They are much brainier than you and they have not lost their brains. You should watch what you are saying and mind your words. They may be deaf and blind but they are much better intelligent people.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:42 AM

    Now, Victor Ivan can write his second book, "Chaura Regina & Military Comis Raja"

    Monday, 25 January 2010 04:27 PM



    Sunday, 24 January 2010 08:27 AM

    I don't think this is a good move for Fonseka since Fonseka is running an ANTI CORRUPTION campaign. People may doubt it.

    Sunday, 24 January 2010 08:27 AM

    Sunday, 24 January 2010 08:30 AM

    A very good decision CBK. You have chosen the people's choice.
