UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe on Thursday asked his MPs to refrain from commenting on the ongoing sessions of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) or referring to them in any way at the present time. He said it was a subject that it was up to the government to handle.

During a meeting with his MPs, Mr. Wickremesinghe briefed his party members on how Sri Lanka had become a subject of discussion at the UNHRC from time to time since 1987. He described how the governments of the time had overcome these challenges through intelligent approaches.

The UNP had also decided to ask for a parliamentary debate during the first week of May on what had transpired during the 19th sessions of the UNHRC and the steps that would be taken by the government at the 20th sessions scheduled to be held later this year. (Kelum Bandara)

    Is this what we get from an opposition leader? Shame on you to be called a Sri Lankan. Don't be a poodle of US. You were all out to be US slave... We dont want that now. Stand for yourself and your people. If you can't pass on that leadership for someone who can... that is what your party needs.

    When the royalist says country first before party--he really means the Sinhalese first before everyone else in Sri Lanka. after all the country belongs to the sinhalese...as our good general sarath had said earlier.

    Ranil, country must come first....party second.

    Royalist Friday, 09 March 2012 03:06 AM

    Silencing MPs is silencing the people !!!

    The Thomian Grand Father of Ranil Wickramasinghe DR Wijewardene believed in vibrant debate within a truly democratic culture of politics.

    He wouldnt have tried to impose conditions on elected Members of Parliament that they should refrain from expressing views on an issue that the whole wide world is currently debating.

    Ranil's Thomian Grandfather also wouldnt have criticized the private TV Channel for showing the Sirikotha Episode, even if it had ethical problems, since Media professionalism demands that journalists engage in self regulation and not regulation by politicians!!!

    Mr. Wickramasinghe used to be a better democrat than this once upon a time. As a Thomian I am getting confused as to what the hell has happened to this man from Royal College who had the privilege to know his Thomian Grand father DR WIJEWARDENE, a Champion of Democracy .

    ESTO PERPETUA!!!!

    Hell with the Government and the Opposition, if you were a true Sri Lankan you will be out on the streets in Geneva protesting against the double standards of the West. How could you? When you are a lackey of the West!
