Ministers are lying- CBK

8 October 2010 06:18 am - 70     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga told Daily Mirror a short while ago contrary to what Ministers Wimal  Weerawansa and Keheliya Rambukwella have said she never asked for pardon for her husband Vijaya Kumaratunga from late President J. R. Jayewardene  but only sought legal redress.

“It is a blatant lie on the part of the ministers that I asked for pardon,” she said. (YP)

    sandman Friday, 08 October 2010 10:00 AM

    You have absolutely NO right to say what u said, since you were the biggest offender during your time.

    Roshan Friday, 08 October 2010 10:00 AM

    Biggest lie and the mistake you did was that you did not abolish the executive president, which was promised by you before the election.

    SNF4 Friday, 08 October 2010 10:12 AM

    Top Sri Lankan Friday, 08 October 2010 06:22 AM

    Hemantha Friday, 08 October 2010 06:33 AM

    They get ministerial posts to lie and they lie to protect ministerial posts. We should teach them Buddhism, we should send them to visit our cancer hospital.

    Dilan Friday, 08 October 2010 06:35 AM

    CBK should run for president again.

    Bluff Bluff Friday, 08 October 2010 06:38 AM

    Wasantha Friday, 08 October 2010 06:38 AM

    Both are only capable to make blatant lies. That is the main job they are assigned to do.

    this can be the only truth because it involved her husband

    Kumar Wijayasekara Friday, 08 October 2010 06:56 AM

    Our self serving ministers will anything to get in to the good books of MR. No shame. No policy, No respect. Nothing.

    trick Friday, 08 October 2010 06:57 AM

    I am not sure that she has ever yap a word of truth in her life.

    Katussa Friday, 08 October 2010 01:51 PM

    But nobody takes them seriously anyway!!!

    lexington Friday, 08 October 2010 07:04 AM

    This is a lie. I remember reading somewhere that JRJ in an interview spoke of this very incident. JRJ had told the reporter, "Politics is a strange thing. When Chandrika came to see me to plead for a pardon for her husband, I never even for a second thought that I was taking to a future executive presidents of Sri Lanka. That is how strange things can be in politics".
    I can't recall where I saw this but if somebody can remember better please give us details.

    amahl Friday, 08 October 2010 07:07 AM

    those days you believed what she said ........bread 3.50 and all

    Chaura Rajina Friday, 08 October 2010 02:16 PM

    ministers are liers but,Rich words from the Queen Of Deceit herself

    chami Friday, 08 October 2010 07:10 AM

    Lying is not a new territory for you madam, you are on of the notorious lier's in the Sri lankan political history.

    eric Friday, 08 October 2010 07:16 AM

    Who gives all this mighty power to the elected president
    and to be above the law to pardon anybody that he feels to do any hat he wants and each time before and election promising to abolish the executive presidency now there is only one thing for the people to do to totally boycott the next election until a new constitution is drafted and aproved with a parliamentary system of governance a prime minister answerable to parliament.

    Prabu Friday, 08 October 2010 07:18 AM

    And when CBK told the truth?

    Saman Saturday, 09 October 2010 06:03 AM

    Now, we have Ministers trying to satisfy the ruling family. They tell anything to achieve it!.

    GMS Saturday, 09 October 2010 06:07 AM

    thats never gonna happen all inteligent ppl become a bunch of fools when there's an election. swallow the same old ropes .

    Daya Friday, 08 October 2010 05:11 PM

    Absolutely. I predict that many years down the line, it will be realised that CBK was a relatively decent President, although it was MR who was able to finish off Prabhakaran.

    J Dan Friday, 08 October 2010 07:40 AM

    what about your days ,it was the same. Now you are talking

    nala3 Friday, 08 October 2010 05:33 PM

    Can any one do politics in Sri Lanka without telling lie? That is their "fundamental right".

    Jix Friday, 08 October 2010 07:41 AM

    Going by all the comments here, this is reminiscent of the story ‘boy who cried wolf’…

    Nalin Pradeep Friday, 08 October 2010 07:42 AM

    Ministers will do................for........................ Their qaulities have completely destroyed. Now there is no any difference between Ministers and Under World members. But even that memebers have some straight forward quality. Ministers have nothing.

    Christopher Friday, 08 October 2010 07:53 AM

    I think we have a good track recod about lying..we know who lied to us so well in the past..
