Ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa turning aggressive cannot be blamed for the incident at the Akuressa rally because those who pushed him to make a comeback have to be blamed for such behavior, State Minister for Child and Women’s Affairs, Rosy Senanayake said today.
She told a news briefing that one should have compassion on Mr. Rajapaksa because his sycophants have made him to be what he is today.
"Bankrupt politicians such as Vasudeva Nananayakkara and Wimal Weerawansa should be blamed for the unpleasant fiasco. These are the once who misled him and pushed the Mr. Rajapaksa to return to politics and thus make him a victim of the unpleasant drama that was enacted at Akuressa. Instead he should been told to live in dignity as the head of state who ended the war,” she said.
Ms. Senanayake said the video footage was not clear as to what really happened at the Akuressa rally though it shows Mr. Rajapaksa in an aggressive mood.
She revealed what the United National Front for Good Governance (UNFGG) intended doing for women if elected to office and said a special unit would be set up to investigate crime against women and set up a National Women’s Commission which will be a one-stop shop to deal with all matters pertaining to women.(Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

The economy of corrupt henchmen, drug lords etc who were manupulating the stock markets and corrupt business companies are now reeling under the impact of good governance. Voter may be refering to this segment because as far as we can see the country is in good shape.

MR is not a little baby, MR should know whom he should be with

To fight a 27 year old war to an end we needed a leader who will hit back if pinched. We had MR GR SF for that.Now we need a leader who is compassionate to take the country into a more civilised future. We have MS. We need a team that understands job creation, wealth distribution, non aligned foreign relations. We have Ranil. To end corruption we have no leader except the people themselves.
Sikuru Friday, 24 July 2015 06:02 PM
As I remember it was not the people around him but it was MR who stole the tsunami funds
Mason Friday, 24 July 2015 06:18 PM
Rosy, what makes you think that MR is a Babe. As far as we know him he is not second to a thug.
Premalal Friday, 24 July 2015 06:34 PM
If someone can ruin a country in 190 days then he must be a genius.

Look good.Some one hold his arm. Another one is trying to remove the stone ring from the finger. Then MR push the man of unbearable pain and then MR is massaging his ring finger..
kumaraya Friday, 24 July 2015 07:40 PM
Agree with Ms. Senanayake. MR should have gone into retirement with the blessings of the nation and with the excellent benefits he is entitled to.
