DIG confident of garnering 300,000 votes

11 August 2014 07:35 pm - 29     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Western Province Senior DIG Anura Senanayake on Monday told Court that going by the trust and confidence people had placed in him, he could easily be able to secure over 300,000 preferential votes from the Colombo district if he contested an election. 
He said the people would also endorse him to serve the Police Department even for 100 years if he lived to reach that age. He said he decided to refrain from conducting investigations into the BASL president’s complaint since the BASL president raised some doubts regarding his involvement in the matter. He said no one should doubt regarding his investigations since he had rendered yeoman service to the country.
 “I was deeply shocked after hearing that Mr. Jayasuriya was not keen over my on going investigations. I am telling the truth. I didn’t take advice from anyone to handle this case. At the same time no one has given me any instructions to handle the matter in accordance with their wishes.  I wrote to the IGP stating that I want to refrain from conducting investigations into the incident for personal reasons. Then the mater was handed over to Senior DIG Gamini Nawaratne”, he said.  (Lakmal Sooriyagoda and T. Farook Thajudeen)

    Shows the extent to which the police service is politicised under this corrupt government. The cops are always thinking of becoming politicians or ambassadors. And thats why they have become slaves of the ruling politicians.

    He should not talk politics while in service. Sarath Fonseka was found fault for talking politics while in service.

    Muta pissu , balan inna , kosata 300,000 hambuwe.

    Anura Senanayakes boast that he can garner 300,000 votes from Colombo district if he contests an election and his assumption that people will endorse his services for hundred years shows the mans inflated ego. This man should have been retired long ago and not be given so many extensions. Shows the power he has been given and used by politicians for their nefarious services

    Kossa Tuesday, 12 August 2014 07:49 AM

    Yes 300000 votes using his connections in the corridors of power and the not so famous pathaley to get votes by hook or crook. Knowing people know who are we are. via DM iPad app

    May be he is right, since he knows how to rig polls and A to Z of how the present polticians win elections.

    If he had said that he will contest from UNP, most of these comments will not be there. He will be a good guy.

    sri Tuesday, 12 August 2014 07:55 AM

    Are his comments befitting to that of a person holding the post of DIG

    what2do Tuesday, 12 August 2014 05:31 AM

    This man is day dreaming.

    Peace Lover Tuesday, 12 August 2014 05:42 AM

    Does this mean he is eyeing to become a politician. 300,000 votes, he must be dreaming. Actually speaking nobody likes him because of this Pada Show and Ego, even his juniors.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 12 August 2014 09:25 AM

    In the country known as Sri Lanka and under our heroic President from Medamullana, yes.
