LTSA Secretary Mahinda Jayasinghe yesterday lodged a complaint on the construction of 1,000 ‘Mahindodaya’ Laboratories and named Mr.Gunawardane as one of the respondents.

Mr. Gunawardane told journalists that he had not even used the official vehicles given to him during his tenure as education minister and that his children were not included in official visits. (Thilini de Silva)

    Mahinda = Hitler the Dictator

    Four footer Bandula should be arrested first.

    Bubble Banda Saturday, 07 February 2015 10:19 AM

    All four (4) footers in the UPFA are cunning archers who played out Public Money in vain.

    Horri Jimonis Saturday, 07 February 2015 10:23 AM

    With Bandula, MR should also to be called for the investigation at BC.

    Desmond Jeromme Saturday, 07 February 2015 10:24 AM

    Bandula earned in Billions from this project.

    Bala Friday, 06 February 2015 01:45 PM

    He is nothing now and days Ministers gave orders is gone but yet trying to give orders to the BC. Why expedite only his case = let the BC decide on priorities as per dates complaints received

    This is the theory to follow, do not try to bully people this time, we all are keeping our eyes open than ever before.

    Bond Friday, 06 February 2015 01:51 PM

    Do not be in a hurry. The people with give the verdict at the next elections

    Sam Friday, 06 February 2015 01:53 PM

    If you not guilty give them required time period for a proper investigation. They will do a proper professional job. We know how did you appoint a council member who rob public money to The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka when you were Trade Minister

    Tilak Friday, 06 February 2015 01:56 PM

    Very good. When one thinks what has been done is correct one need not fear. Truth will prevail !

    Citizen Silva Friday, 06 February 2015 07:03 PM

    It is time for all the media including TV, Press, Radio and Electronic and Face book to reveal all the corruptions to Public. Nobody should be allowed to Black out or cover up all these corruptions.

    balla Saturday, 07 February 2015 03:13 PM

    Can M3 speak in English? He is our President now :))))))

    Aba Jayasekera Friday, 06 February 2015 07:53 PM

    He must be thinking that MR is still in charge and he could get state organizations to act on his instructions. All in good time, Bandula!

    gamaati Saturday, 07 February 2015 05:29 PM

    you need to understand the comment before writing.

    Veda-mama Friday, 06 February 2015 03:12 PM

    Why is that everything has to be named in Sri Lanka, commencing with the word "M..a..h..I..n..",.?

    Vijith Pieterz Saturday, 07 February 2015 12:20 PM

    Ordinary tuition master made Billions?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 07 February 2015 12:21 PM

    Can he talk in English? How could this man holding the very important port folio without English.

    J Palitha Saturday, 07 February 2015 11:43 PM

    Bandula why you stopped. Has he got a heart attack?

    Horri Jimonis Saturday, 07 February 2015 12:26 PM

    From tutions he made only hundreds those days, now he deals with Billions. Ha...Ha...Ha...

    kan Friday, 06 February 2015 03:48 PM

    Just wait and see. There will be news black out on at least 90% of the bribery or corruption cases against former regime. As usual Sri Lankans has short memory and they too will forget about these cases, Already there are such signs.

    Gamaati Saturday, 07 February 2015 12:36 PM

    Let the investigators decide and not the accused.

    Jaya Friday, 06 February 2015 03:50 PM

    ඔයා අමාතංශ ඇතුලෙ කරපුව ටික්කක් කියන්න්ද ?මාතර ළමයා

    Lanka Sunday, 08 February 2015 03:24 AM

    Exactly, we are all Sri Lankans. We know how it works. Anda bera gahala patan ganna vitaray, after a while everything is forgotten, and everything is back to the same old rut! Different party, same old ****!

    Sunil Friday, 06 February 2015 12:31 PM

    Why should the Bribery Commission expedite the investigation just to suit your needs? For a proper investigation to take place, none of these cases should be expedited!

    Prince Friday, 06 February 2015 12:39 PM

    None of these accusations can be proved. They will cover up and some low rank officers will be prosecuted. For all the corruption, get the Inland revenue involved. All assets of these thieves will be in some other persons name. Grill the registered owner and find out how they acquired the money to by or invest in properties or business ventures and check if tax has been paid. If not crucify them in Jail and fine them. get our journalists to write in newspapers with this theory.

    Desmon Jeromme Saturday, 07 February 2015 01:32 PM

    Not only Bandula, MR too was holding the Top, without proper English knowledge. Late he learnt a bit.

    J Palitha Saturday, 07 February 2015 01:34 PM

    Education Minister was a liar, Higher Education Minister was a nasty thug.

    Horri Jimonis Saturday, 07 February 2015 01:36 PM

    Well putha, very soon you will hear bad news about your good friend Bandula.

    Vijith Pieterz Saturday, 07 February 2015 01:37 PM


    J Palitha Saturday, 07 February 2015 01:39 PM

    We know about Bandula when he was wearing a dirty sarong with a banda banian and loafing in the streets. Anyway, he some how hung unto MR and became a Billionaire.

    Vijith Pieterz Saturday, 07 February 2015 01:43 PM

    Not only four footers, even all Politicians raring beared are the worst culprits.

    KnowAll Friday, 06 February 2015 05:45 PM

    We know how you passed regulation to allow children to sit A level without passing Maths at O level to accommodate another politicos child. Good that new Ed Min Akila stopped this nonsense.

    DillonDP Sunday, 08 February 2015 08:22 AM

    Bandu, pls refrain from politics I still remember you logic answer for our living standard ..... May be we should complain to the mental institution to check your brain

    mithra Friday, 06 February 2015 05:48 PM

    Do not try to show you are innocent. People are not fools anymore. Wait for your chance without jumping the gun.

    Bubble Banda Saturday, 07 February 2015 01:44 PM

    2nd comes SB... step by step.

    Desmond Jeromme Saturday, 07 February 2015 10:05 AM

    You must ask Bandula Gunawardene how many Billions he made out of this deal.

    J Palitha Saturday, 07 February 2015 01:46 PM

    English was not needed for UPFA men, only thuggery is the qualification.

    Vijith Pieterz Saturday, 07 February 2015 10:06 AM

    Yes, thugs, looters and murderers used white vans will learn a lesson soon.

    lionel bopage Friday, 06 February 2015 01:06 PM

    They should disclose their assets including those of their close family members prior to 2005 election, prior to 2010 election and prior to 2015 election to assess what they have really gained both financially and materially, in doing politics!

    Horri Jimonis Saturday, 07 February 2015 10:09 AM

    Are you washing clothes to Bandula, did he give something to you from this project?

    Azee Friday, 06 February 2015 05:59 PM

    Is Bandula so sure that he wont get caught via DM Android App

    Horri Jimonis Saturday, 07 February 2015 10:12 AM
