Former President and UPFA Kurunegala District MP Mahinda Rajapaksa who was listed to speak during the adjournment debate on the UNHRC resolution in Parliament was a notable absentee yesterday. 

Mr. Rajapaksa was allocated fifteen minutes for his speech, according to Parliament sources.

The news that the former President would not participate in the debate was conveyed by MP Dullas Alahapperuma who said the news was actually conveyed to him by MP Sarath Amunugama.

Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella and Deputy Chief Government Whip Ajith P Perera later insisted that the former President should speak during the debate as he was responsible for the engagement of UNHRC on Sri Lanka.

    May be he gone to look for a friend

    Nadeesha Sunday, 25 October 2015 10:36 AM

    Presumably he was absent because his astrologers advised him to do so.

    Perumal Sunday, 25 October 2015 11:20 AM

    If he had power he would have shown how to hold such debates in parliament!

    Pillaiar Saturday, 24 October 2015 02:59 PM

    Donot worry readers , he is in search of execuses. And he will address in the press confress in narahenpita pansala.

    Sincere Saturday, 24 October 2015 03:44 PM

    No, He is busy with an election campaign!

    MrRetort Saturday, 24 October 2015 03:45 PM

    Evading the responsibility is cowardice act. May be to get political advantage on a later date with a twist when needed.

    C-O-W-A-R-D - he lacks the courage - possibly has "Dutch Courage"

    Cobra Saturday, 24 October 2015 07:06 PM

    But then Parliament was never his preferred venue, no?

    Samantha Saturday, 24 October 2015 07:43 PM

    Hey guys what exactly he did? Was eliminating LTTE a bad thing for Sri Lanka? Looks like everyone thinks like that. God bless your guys.

    It will take few more days for him to get used to demoratic system of Governance via DM Android App

    Premalal Saturday, 24 October 2015 10:40 AM

    Speechless

    Anura Saturday, 24 October 2015 08:59 PM

    He clearly asked government to reject the US sponsored resolution, government instead cosponsored it, now MR has actually nothing to discuss with UNP ears.

    mithra Saturday, 24 October 2015 09:04 PM

    He knows he cannot bluff the present parliament. He is also aware that his knowledge is very limited. He is incapable in answering prompt questions on a complicated subject unless assisted by someone competent.

    acs Saturday, 24 October 2015 09:35 PM

    Watch the news and read the papers, then you will know what exactly happened.

    Sujey Saturday, 24 October 2015 10:53 AM

    This is a leader who caused so much of peril to ntry economically as well as internationally.He should be held responsible not only for this matter but for all other bad judgements made in the past.

    Yaka Baas Saturday, 24 October 2015 09:40 PM

    He must have gone "underground" to look for answers to his latest "underground" hideout!

    Nadeesha Saturday, 24 October 2015 10:08 PM

    His astrologer would have advised him to do so.

    Anura Sunday, 25 October 2015 09:56 PM

    Dear Bala,You are in some way right, but see how can he agreed with things that there are 40000 Tamil civilians were killed during the last few days of the war?

    Bandu Saturday, 24 October 2015 11:02 PM

    You mean he alone did it. Also you are happy he stole your mony and mine.

    lokka Saturday, 24 October 2015 11:42 AM

    when the truth come out MR will disappered

    Bala Saturday, 24 October 2015 11:04 PM

    He did not come becos his henchaiya Weerawansa was in Negombo Courts yesterday and no one to cheer him.

    Wise Donkey Saturday, 24 October 2015 11:10 PM

    No, he is looking for a reliable astrologer to find out what is the best day and time to attend parliament. Negatha is very important!

    TONY Saturday, 24 October 2015 11:43 PM

    WINNING THE WAR (NOT ALONE THOUGH) DOES NOT MEAN THAT HE CAN ROB THE COUNTRY

    TONY Saturday, 24 October 2015 11:44 PM

    MR IS ON SICK LEAVE

    Sapu Saturday, 24 October 2015 12:36 PM

    He is probably swimming in the beach while enjoying stolen public money

    Zebra Sunday, 25 October 2015 03:32 AM

    Not just removing LTTE, but all wealth from poors

    OMG Saturday, 24 October 2015 12:44 PM

    it is normal offender feels guilty to come for an debate, as scared truth may revealed. But one fine day the truth will come to light with or without their concern.

    Lanka Sunday, 25 October 2015 04:51 AM

    Relax people, he is trying to save money!

    Jeff Sunday, 25 October 2015 04:56 AM

    Aiyo Mahinda! Why did you became MP?

    Bala Sunday, 25 October 2015 06:32 AM

    Yes you are right - he is used to everyone saying Yes Sir, he does not believe in discussion and consensual politics. He wanted Parliament to only rubberstamp his views.
