Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga said today that although the war has come to an end, the country cannot be developed with casino owners, shrewd people and murderers around.

The former president made this statement at the Puttalam Municipal council. She said that the war was concluded with the weapons she had bought and added that the government service is now corrupt.  “Only casino owners, shrewd people and murderers are appointed for big positions,” she said.

    Roshan Friday, 06 August 2010 05:30 AM

    Madam, where is your close friend Mrs. Tamara, who ruined the eductaional system in our country.

    Only common thing between CB & MR - Love for Mervyn Silva!!!!

    Faqi Thursday, 05 August 2010 08:35 PM

    arafath Friday, 06 August 2010 05:45 AM

    she has nothing to do now !!!

    xlntgson Friday, 06 August 2010 10:27 AM

    Do you mean shrewd in the sense of cunningness? You'd better not. You were also too smart and shrewd, kept people in waiting.

    Sunil Gamage Friday, 06 August 2010 06:36 AM

    Who is this woman?

    Padikaramaduwa, G Friday, 06 August 2010 01:44 AM

    Your reign is the darkest period of the post independent Sri Lanka!

    suwimal Friday, 06 August 2010 06:50 AM

    My late father who was a steadfast UNPer, used to say more than 40 years back, that when people come to realise the deapth of destruction the Bandaranaikes have wrought on this country, it would be too late. I disagreed with him then but now I realise the truth of what he said. But I am not sure whether other people do.

    baba Friday, 06 August 2010 01:58 AM

    all those are result of your inability. capable people are coming to the front. remember weapons only cannot win the war. win a war needs people and attitudes which you are lacking.

    udaya Friday, 06 August 2010 02:25 AM

    You were a total failure. You betrayed the trust people had in you and took the country backward. If the weapons were bought by you, what were you doing with them? Playing Hora Police? Best you can do is to appreciate what was done. If you cannot do that, at least please remain quiet.

    faizalsamsu Friday, 06 August 2010 02:44 AM

    now it's too late... only another Tsunami can destroy these thuggery criminals...

    Lamaya Friday, 06 August 2010 03:13 AM

    You were one of the worst presidents our country ever had and you actually have the gutts to come and say things like this? Our country is a better place than it was when you were in power!

    spark Friday, 06 August 2010 03:15 AM

    Starting from your father, the SLFP has always been a destruction to society and country. The present regime is continuing in that path.

    nasrullah-beruwala Friday, 06 August 2010 03:29 AM

    madam! you didn't say anything about the 3rd mistake u have done!!!!!

    Mudiyanse Friday, 06 August 2010 03:33 AM

    mind your own miss-people will select them again.

    Bluff Bluff Friday, 06 August 2010 03:44 AM

    We noticed how you started to stammer when you were talking about the press freedom during your regime.

    Concerned Friday, 06 August 2010 03:48 AM

    Can you at least now tell us who Baddegana Sanjeewa was and what was your connection with him please?

    C.Medalanakara Friday, 06 August 2010 04:05 AM

    One time Hero is now a "0". This is the reality which all have to identify according to the teachings of Load Buddha.

    dickmon Friday, 06 August 2010 08:06 AM

    u call these "talks" !!! and there are people who eat these also !!!

    Sam Friday, 06 August 2010 04:15 AM

    People will curse you for the things you have done. Sri lanka went into the deepest tragedy during your period and you don't have rights to claim anything good you have done for the country.

    tharma Thursday, 05 August 2010 04:39 PM

    Who brought Mahindha to power?

    Dilan Thursday, 05 August 2010 05:01 PM

    She is a fine one to complain, after having appointed these people to the high posts they enjoy today!

    Gayan Thursday, 05 August 2010 05:06 PM

    Bandit Queen opens her mouth, bringing back dark memories during her reign.

    mata nikang hithuna Friday, 06 August 2010 04:44 AM

    Dear Madam I really wanted to comment, but the people above done it for me. Thank you guys.

    bnadara Friday, 06 August 2010 04:47 AM

    hello, you have done NOTHING to the country in your past regime , but to your generations. Have your ever got a chance to even think positive like this??

    Phil Friday, 06 August 2010 05:01 AM

    Bandaranayke family contributed much to the down fall of our island nation. It is surprising to see some of the remaining members of the family have the audacity to point finger at others. She may be correct in saying casino owners, shrewd people and murderers are appointed for big positions. But the cult actually originated in her time. Her mother, father too were accused of such unlawful acts.

    It is a case of pot calling kettle black.

    AJ - COLOMBO Friday, 06 August 2010 05:22 AM

    Does she mean BEER is ok but Casino is bad?

    john Saturday, 07 August 2010 08:03 AM

    Pot calling the Kettle " Black "
