Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne’s son challenging former president Mahinda Rajapaksa to contest the general elections from Beliatta is similar to a piglet challenging a lion, UPFA MP Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena said.
He told a news conference that the former president was not bothered about the challenges thrown at him.
“Mr. Rajapaksa is a hero who saved the country. People still respect him. Various people keep challenging him and these challenges are similar one thrown by piglets at a lion. Even King Kosol had a dream of a lion being stalked by jackals. We have piglets instead,” Mr. Abeywardena said.
He said Mr. Rajapaksa doesn’t need special security arrangements, portfolios or any other privileges offered and said the people would hand over the country to him in the near future.
At a meeting held at the Sugathadasa Stadium on Sunday, Health Minister’s son Chathura Senaratne had challenged former the former president to contest the general election from the Beliatta electorate.
He vowed to end the former president’s political career from the very place it began. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

So did he and his acolytes think that they were lions until the 8th of January 2015. Suddenly It dawned on them they were jackals and were chased out!

The biggest mistake MR did was to protect Rajitha and other goons for their corruption.

It is petty that no inquiry against former minister of fisheries at FCID, it is because of Yamapalanaya.

Has any one ever believed that a bony lean innocent man could challenge and won a hefty mustached creature feeding on human blood and flesh inflated with a body amour.
