Mahinda to meet Modi

13 March 2015 02:17 pm - 19     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is due to meet visiting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow.

Mr. Rajapaksa confirmed the meet up last evening when he attended the opening ceremony of a photo-exhibition in Colombo.

“I am due to meet the Indian Prime Minister tomorrow. I will speak of our discussion following the meeting tomorrow,” he said.

He seemed to evade questions that were posed by the journalists, when one reporter asked whether he could respond to the rumours circulating of his possible entry to politics. The only answer he gave to that query was, “I am and have always have been an SLFP-er...”

Meanwhile, when inquired by the journalists of his opinions of the proposed national government concept  due to be established, he said he did not have any comments and reverted the question to SLFP General Secretary and former Minister Anura Priyadharshana Yapa who also attended the event.

    Sir ! You had better ask Modi himself as to why he had conspired to oust you from your kindom when you meet rather than telling various news items as and when you think at your sheer desperation

    Itis best for Modi to be impartial and meet both sides. As who knows the future events. It was a good move by PM Modi

    Hon. Mody should not meet ex-president who made SriLanka poor and earned in Billions.

    Horri Jimonis Saturday, 14 March 2015 09:35 AM

    Hon. PM Mody, if you want to meet MR, he may need two bottles of whiskey.

    Why Modi should meet a rotten egg. He will spoil him to loot.

    What is his business with Modi?If any foreign leader goes to India, will Modi entertain him meeting Sonia Ghandi or Manmoham Singh?

    OMG Saturday, 14 March 2015 10:11 AM

    Modi can learn a lot from Mahinda how racist politics cannot be used anymore to cover up corruption. People cannot be fooled anymore using sentiments as Modi found out in New Delhi local elections.

    Desmond Jeromme Friday, 13 March 2015 10:11 PM

    Haloo Sir, now you are a good for nothing vessel, keep away from Politics. Moreover, you have nothing with Modi.
