Minister Mervyn Silva’s son Malaka, in a letter to former President Chandrika Kumaratunga on her recent remarks about the Mervyn Silva family, said she should refrain from making contemptuous remarks so as to preserve the status of a noble family rather than finding specks in others eyes.
In the letter released to the media, Malaka recalls his father’s dedication to the Bandaranaike family had been valued by the whole country. S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike and the Sirimavo Bandaranaike are most prominent among them. My father became known to this famous family through President Mahinda Rajapaksa in 1971.
Since then he was more concerned about the problems faced by the Bandaranaikes, than the problems of his own family. He never deserted the Bandaranaike family when they were in trouble.
“I suppose Madam Chandrika has not forgotten how my father bravely came to protect the Bandaranaike memorial from the thugs at a time they were out of the limelight,” he said.“I also regret her sarcastic remarks which bring her disgrace. One’s behavior will help them to remain in the minds of people even after the death.”
The letter is a response to remarks made by the former President Chandrika Bandaranaike about Malaka at a public meeting held in memory of the late Vijaya Kumarathunga in Kandy. She is said to have referred to him as being stupid.
But she is the one who bought this man to limelight

Malaka… You are great.. The Ex. president Chandrika does not deserve to be respected because what's she saying and doing now is against Sri Lanka. She is having an unstable mind.can you remember once what she said to BBC? “My son said that he is ashamed to say he is Sri Lankan”. it is true Chandrika and her son had forgotten what LTTE had done. it seems as she lost an eye from a bomb blast her mind is also blind now.
Grace Saturday, 09 March 2013 10:18 AM
Madam Chandrika was genuinely interested to do good for the country. Unfortunately because of certain politicians with venom in their hearts she failed.

Ranjit Saturday, 09 March 2013 04:48 AM
If the person involved is a culprit he should be condemned. We all know about Malaka and his father. The former president is right.
Mala Honthuwa Saturday, 09 March 2013 08:03 AM
It was Chandrika who brought these people to politics in SL in the first place.
Nodrog Saturday, 09 March 2013 04:51 AM
His only qualification is being the notorious son of a equally notorious thug.This wimp would not even have been born when his father was pimping for the B family. CBK was right anyway.
Suleiman Saturday, 09 March 2013 08:07 AM
Malaka can write. But not diagrammatically or sensibly.
When I was in grade 2, I could write better than this.
garawi Saturday, 09 March 2013 04:54 AM
"One’s behavior will help them to remain in the minds of people even after the death.” That one he got correct! And will apply to Mervyn and his son too and will be remembered!

Added to the many crimes that the Bandaranaike family has been responsible for beginning with Sinhala Only for which we are yet suffering, they have sponsored this family too.

Mervyn was a servant for these families one.time.He still kiss as- of MR. This uneducated got a Hon. degree from a stupid university in Sri Lanka.malaka might get a degree some day.

Why don't you send a copy of this letter to your farther. It is more apply to him rather than Chandrika.

Malaka who? IS he a state figure? IF he was NOT Silva's son, NONE in the country would know of this imbecile...
LOL... he has the nerve to write to a Past President..
It's like trying to lay a Leech on a mat, it will always want to go to the mud... and NOT live on a mattress...... A famous Sinhala and tamil saying.....

Why publicity is given this person, through the media is questionable. There are better things to worry about than these political misfits (including Bandaranayakes).

Are you all going to do the same in the future? Time has come to plan to get rid of the political liabilities in Sri Lanka in the next general and Presidential election.

Maybe so, but you and I voted to elect them to office. When you point your finger there are 3 more pointing back at you sir

Sammy Saturday, 09 March 2013 05:33 AM
Neither Malaka nor his father has any moral grounds to write letters like this.
mikee Saturday, 09 March 2013 05:36 AM
Malaka has rightly said as follows "ONE'S BEHAVIOR WILL HELP THEM TO REMAIN IN THE MINDS OF PEOPLE EVEN AFTER THE DEATH". You and your beloved father has done a lot of good things that the people of this country will remember for ever.
tony Saturday, 09 March 2013 05:39 AM
First of all deny the facts Madam said. you r defending your father who had done so much destruction to the people

The comment what Chandrika made is perfectly correct
dIREsTRAITS Saturday, 09 March 2013 02:38 AM
Chandrika however good or bad she maybe, is a twice elected president of Sri Lanka. This guy is a son ONLY known for his activities. Chandrika may say anything she want's. What the hell has this guy done for the country to question or lecture a former president? He should first find a 9-5 job and start paying taxes, then and only then maybe he can participate in the franchise. Until then he should go back to school and get on with his hodiya!

There were a lot of mistakes Chandrika made and we are reaping the wrath of the bad decisions she made. Nevertheless she was somebody who had far more credibility and stature than the current President and his clan of goons. Sri Lanka is seen as a joke amongst nations. God help us! via DM iPad app

Manisha Saturday, 09 March 2013 06:04 AM
Youngers should stay out of grown up affairs, and allow his usually father to fight his battles.
Young Malaka must be mistaking a former President for one of the young victims of his bullying. apples does not fall far from the tree, and teaching his son how to be a gentleman might be a stretch, but Mervin should put in some effort.
Dinesh Saturday, 09 March 2013 06:04 AM
This is why Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake says she is still the CJ. In her views she got impeached by thugs, murderers and thieves. I hope in the next election, voters will use they brains instead of their kidneys......
sara Saturday, 09 March 2013 02:54 AM
It only shows how jobless these people were when they had to look after Bandaranayikes at that time. We all know how some people hang around big families doing all odd jobs for them simply because they have no other thing to do.
Good lesson for all who associate and seek help from low bred people.

Politicians must be free of thuggery so they are not pray to thugs themselves. Its a symbiotic relationship. Why cant the powerful depend on the law of the nation, which we all have to depend on. The reason I suppose is that the politicians DO NOT TRUST the legal institutions and the arm of the law as they have diluted the strength of the Legal system for their own gain. All citizens of Lanka are waiting for the drug dealers and the corrupt politicians to fall.So that we all an be free again.
