National security, Economy at stake: MR

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa alleged yesterday that the backbone of the nation was breaking while the separatist eelamist flag was being hoisted in one part of the country.

He said this in a letter addressed to the crowd that attended the meeting organized by a group within the UPFA yesterday in Matara in order to demand the SLFP leadership to field him as the Prime Ministerial candidate at the forthcoming Parliamentary election.

The former President who had made a guest appearance to the venue for a few minutes at the Matara rampart said in his letter that the patriots in the country were shocked to hear that 59 army camps were withdrawn from the North, people in the government suggesting the release of terrorists and so-called peace makers in Europe such as Solheim were reviving their secessionist agendas.

He said the national security and national economy that had been strengthened during his tenure was waning and the large scale development programmes were at a standstill. ( Krishan Jeewaka Jayaruk)

    How about the borrowings you obtained during your tenure.

    PoPo Saturday, 13 June 2015 09:31 AM

    Yes, National security at stake. Reason "NO WHITE VANs". National economy at stake, yes your economy, no more Chinese commissions. Big bucks Uh! We have not forgotten, it is just over 100 days.

    Manel Saturday, 13 June 2015 09:40 AM

    Definitely the economy of your family at stake but not the economy of poor people.

    the international banks who lend money have strict guidelines. They have professional accountant and financial executives who look into projects before approving loans. Loans mostly approved will be given in portions with the progress of the project.

    Mahinda thinks only he knew how to run this country. We all know very well how did he run the country. On the 8th January we gave him a permanent retirement. But he still refuse to accept it.

    Truth Saturday, 13 June 2015 10:37 AM

    No one comments when the truth is spoken. Yahapalana cowards

    MR is responsible for these mess. If you did not call for early PE, those UNP who are almost bankrupt, today is not talking big and bring the country to wanton destruction.

    Sikuru Saturday, 13 June 2015 11:07 AM

    Mr. Smart Monday, 15 June 2015 09:02 AM

    Thank you sir for the great advice. We will remember this.

    Anthonyy Saturday, 13 June 2015 11:24 AM

    PLEASE MIND YOUR BUSINESS AND LET THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT HANDLE THINGS AS YOU DID NOT LET ANYONE INTERFERE WHEN YOU WERE RULING.

    Arjun Mahendran Saturday, 13 June 2015 11:32 AM

    Why our Sri Lankans forgot the dirtiest war over 30 years and cursing MR for finishing and creating an environment for everyone to live. He is the only President with a backbone who determined to finish the war and develop the country amidst lots of pressure from western countries.We have to accept that there was corruption in his regime but the country was advancing. Now there is corruption but country is going backwards. Now Colombo city is full of uncollected garbage and broken roads. The US$ is 138.00 now. Economy is becoming worse day by day.We should admit that.

    Bala Saturday, 13 June 2015 11:45 AM

    Unlike your unsolicited proposals, proper procedure s now followed. So no corruption.

    Bala Saturday, 13 June 2015 11:48 AM

    Your famous - onna babo goni billa - is good for children and your low intelligent followers. We know that you want to get back by frightening the people.

    Former President Rajapaksha who ruled Srilanka and ruined the Economy cries National Security and Economy at Stake!!!!!!

    Banda Saturday, 13 June 2015 11:51 AM

    If you were so good how did your party general secretary beat you. For the elections you had colossal spending of state funds, used state vehicles and personnel, state electronic and print media. But you simply could not beat MS. You will return to serve the people? You come to serve yourself.

    Josh Saturday, 13 June 2015 11:54 AM

    You clearly habe no idea how the world banking system works do you...

    Gobba Saturday, 13 June 2015 11:56 AM

    You pawned our "National Security" to the Chinese and now you are talking nonsense. We are ALL not Konda Bendhaphu Cheeno. Your Baiyyas can be told these Jathaka stories.

    Sampath Saturday, 13 June 2015 12:00 PM

    Chinese banks are known for ignoring those guidlines and even bribing politicians in nations like nicarouga

    King King Saturday, 13 June 2015 12:15 PM

    Hey talk the truth its now over 150 days!

    C.K.Lankaputhra Saturday, 13 June 2015 12:21 PM

    When U were ruling with your clan, lap dogs and wild dogs, the whole country was at stake.

    Mason Saturday, 13 June 2015 12:25 PM

    He is trying to drive a wedge between the Tamil and Sinhala races, whilst BBS who is also sponsoring him spewing hatred between the Sinhala and Muslims.This if allowed to continue does not bode well for the Country. The authorities should stamp this down with a heavy foot immediately. The President owes this to the people who voted him to power.

    malik1958 Saturday, 13 June 2015 12:26 PM

    MR We are very very that you can not see far any more.The bus is gon now to late.

    Damien Saturday, 13 June 2015 10:32 PM

    The present government borrowed at 6 % per year in total $3 billion.

    AR Monday, 15 June 2015 10:46 AM

    Borrowing? what about the fraud? taking billions of public funds?

    Ram Saturday, 13 June 2015 12:49 PM

    Projects overvalued to have commissions in the pockets, loans taken at high interest, when the government keep paying the loan instalments there is nothing left for development.

    Damien Saturday, 13 June 2015 01:03 PM

    This country needs you back in power

    citizen a Saturday, 13 June 2015 01:15 PM

    Sir.Please enjoy your retirement age.the more you talk people will loose the little bit of respect they had on you.

    Freddy Saturday, 13 June 2015 01:15 PM

    True the country is waning and going downhill, getting advisers, magicians etc will not help. Leaders must lead or get out, peoples mandate to run the country and economy with employment, etc not revenge. Shouting Corruption without evidence is a waste of time and money a political Gimmick. People are fed up. Yes Mahinda is seen as the most capable candidate in this era, the current regime cannot better him in anyway. The elections will confirm.

    Raalahamy Saturday, 13 June 2015 01:16 PM

    Mae Kawda ? Monawada Kiyanne ?

    This shameless MR should retire gracefully just like the other presidents did when their terms were over. Besides, being the first ever DEFEATED president, he should know to guard his language and let the democratically elected President to do his duty. How could this man, who made billions in covert manner, still have the audacity to talk of the financial situation of the country. It is high time he learns that no one can fool all the people all the time.
