Is Govt. using Sunny Leone to promote casinos?: Wimal

The good-governance proponents, who condemned casinos in the country, should confirm whether they are planning to promote the casino industry by bringing the well-known erotic actress Sunny Leone to the country, National Freedom Front Leader and Opposition MP Wimal Weerawansa said today.

Ms. Leone is said to be planning to visit Sri Lanka in December and during her visit, she is expected to present a musical concert at the premises of a casino in Colombo.

Ms. Leone is reportedly being sponsored by a businessman who has a chain of casinos in Sri Lanka.

Mr. Weerawansa said Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thera should raise his voice against actress Leone’s visit to the country because he was one of those who spoke against the casinos during the previous government.

“We can’t imagine what will happen to the country at this rate. We saw an organization calling itself the Centre for Sex Worker’s Rights (CSWR) requesting the President to legalise sex workers and provide them legal recognition. There were reports asking for legal rights for gays as well and in the meantime we hear that the well-known erotic actress Sunny Leone is visiting our country to promote casinos. Where are the religious groups and other politicians who protested against casino projects? This concert will definitely help to expand the casino industry. We should not let it happen,” Mr. Weerawansa said. (Piyumi Fonseka)

    Looks like Wimal is a popular topic !

    Ceylonese Thursday, 05 November 2015 04:49 AM

    How come Wimal seems to know the sunny side of Bollywood actress Sunny Leone? If she likes to expose herself it is none of his business.

    Sapu Wednesday, 04 November 2015 03:51 PM

    Well now Wimal is talking against Casinos? Who were the ones trying to make big bucks through casinos with taxe breaks?

    Citizen Wednesday, 04 November 2015 03:57 PM

    Nat Wednesday, 04 November 2015 03:58 PM

    This is called democratic country. All are well come. Where were you when previous gov imported Chinese prostitutes?

    gamarala Wednesday, 04 November 2015 04:13 PM

    look at wimal in the picture, how he is staring at leone. hik hik. It is ok for ministers to make private trips to meet leone.

    Sam Wednesday, 04 November 2015 04:15 PM

    We love sunny Leone! There is nothing wrong in giving rights to sex workers. It will atleast reduce the rate of sex abuses. By the way sometime back the rapists had more rights than others.

    mubarak sadhar Wednesday, 04 November 2015 04:20 PM

    I think the answer is in his statement, its a businessman and owner, and the event is private. Govt has no involvement. Classic case, you ask a question and better yet give the answer too.. bravo Wimal...

    M E P Perera Wednesday, 04 November 2015 04:29 PM

    If this person is being brought to the country by a casino owner and not the yahapalana government, why ask the government, ask the casino owner. By the way how does Lemon Puff Wimal know so much about this person.

    NAF Wednesday, 04 November 2015 04:30 PM

    NICE COUPLE LOCAL CASINO PLUS FOREIGN CASINO

    OMG Wednesday, 04 November 2015 04:45 PM

    These politicians only know to make noise for such matters. Whereas the ministers has so much to do for the country development and public welfare. They are aliens for them.

    nishan Thursday, 05 November 2015 01:46 PM

    Casino owner was secretary to a ministry in his government.

    Andrew Pitugala Wednesday, 04 November 2015 04:54 PM

    He is reformed after the Passport saga. This really is a good cause.

    BuffaloaCitizen Wednesday, 04 November 2015 05:01 PM

    When MaRa was planning to legislate and legalize casinos, this man even shut his mouth and his others (Vasu, Dinesh, Gamanpila) too. Now suddenly, all mouths are opened and when ever they talk it smells to hell like shit.

    Ceylonese Wednesday, 04 November 2015 05:04 PM

    Sunny Leone is a popular Bollywood actress of Canadian origin. If she wants to come to the country to promote her film or for a concert it is a private matter and no one can stop her.

    BuffaloaCitizen Wednesday, 04 November 2015 05:04 PM

    Normally when you spit up and it falls on your face, this happens with the mouth. Wimal is doing the same thing with his posterior.

    malaka silva Wednesday, 04 November 2015 05:10 PM

    send SF lokku to that businessman who is dealing this, he knows how to deal the matter and have a clean Colombo

    I am Sri Lanka Thursday, 05 November 2015 09:42 AM

    Ok Guys, well lets keep everything aside. Now where Sunny Leone is Performing.... :)

    TONY Wednesday, 04 November 2015 05:51 PM

    PROSTITUTION, GAMBLING AND OTHER ACTIVITIES WHETHER LEGALISED OR NOT WILL GO ON AND NO ONE CAN STOP THAT IN THIS AGE. BEFORE WIMAL CAN OPEN HIS OBJECTIONS HE SHOULD FIRST CLEAN UP HIMSELF BY DECLARING HIS ASSETS AND SAY HOW HE ACQUIRED SO MUCH OF WEALTH. BETTER FOR YOU TO BE A GOOD PERSON BEFORE CRITICISING OTHERS

    Andrew Pitugala Thursday, 05 November 2015 09:55 AM

    Because he uses the smartest of smart phones.

    Sincere Wednesday, 04 November 2015 06:25 PM

    One thing is certain. Wimal will never ever stage a fast-unto-death on this issue!

    Katie Thursday, 05 November 2015 10:01 AM

    looks like Wimal is entering the dementia stage! he has forgotten how he supported the casino bill during the past

    paths Thursday, 05 November 2015 04:56 PM

    CASINOS r there to stay.We need them for an evening of entertainment after a hard days work to relax

    Cobra Wednesday, 04 November 2015 06:56 PM

    TONY Wednesday, 04 November 2015 10:30 PM

    ANY TOPIC WILL TICKLE THIS CRITIC

    smith Thursday, 05 November 2015 11:39 AM

    where were you when packer came. you also enjoyed the pleasure of casino at that time

    GS Thursday, 05 November 2015 12:49 AM

    You are so smart.The whole argument here, is that the people who were visibly against casinos when Mahinda wanted to bring the Packer guy for a casino; are now promoting the trade furthermore.(which is no surprise, as it was the UNP who brought introduced casinos in the first place)I am not against casinos. But Sapu my friend, try and understand the argument by Wimal, and the irony of UNP actions..

    Paths Thursday, 05 November 2015 12:55 AM

    CASINOS r part of our entertainment.We need to RELAX after a days work. SUNNY LEONE is an EROTIC actress. So what?

    Anton Thursday, 05 November 2015 02:09 AM

    Wimal, you and Shashi can spearhead asking the Government to allow Sri Lankans to possess two passports and two Identity Cards so that no problems would arise if one is lost!
