Nugegoda Rally was a success: Susil

19 February 2015 08:17 am - 69     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The newly appointed Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) National Organiser Susil Premajayantha said Wednesday’s Nugegoda rally was a success and it reflected the power of the ‘betel leaf’. 

He expressed these views at a news conference held at the SLFP head office soon after assuming duties as national organiser. The new SLFP Treasurer S.B. Navinna also assumed duties at the SLFP head office.

When a journalist asked whether the Nugegoda rally, organised by four political parties of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) was successful, Mr. Premajayantha said, “Why not.”

 He said the SLFP had some issues about participating at the rally because there were no discussions held with the organisers of the rally.

“We would have arrived at a decision if they had consulted us before organising the rally. But what we received was an open invitation afterwards,” he said adding that there was no need to take action against SLFP members who took part in the rally. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Well done Mr Mahnida Rajapakse. We need you back to take SL to the first world status. Please correct your negative aspects and lead this great Nation to countries similar to Singapore and UAE. Your Model and thinking on mega developments are perfect. Please come back as PM.

    Mr.Smart Thursday, 19 February 2015 02:36 PM

    Number of heads does not matter. You are crying for a dead matter.remember what goes around also comes around.

    AMMI Thursday, 19 February 2015 02:39 PM

    Its not that difficult to organize to bring the crowd for this rally, as they already have enough experience from the presidential election by paying them with money, booze and what not. Of course all the culprits have more looted wealth of the innocent mars, so they can very well afford.

    H. Jagathdeva Friday, 20 February 2015 03:39 PM

    Mr Premjayantha, it is not only the power of the betel leaf. It also shows what a genuine leader Mahinda is. All of you are trying to disown him in subtle ways. However, as a very elderly political observer, I am convinced that Mahinda has been the best leader we have had since independence. I am not a member of any political party. If you are patriotic enough you and your party should decide where your loyalties should abide. Is it Sri Lanka Chandrika Party or Sri Lanka Mahinda Party?

    Dev Thursday, 19 February 2015 02:43 PM

    why? do you want to give runil the backdoor prime minster a free run?

    La Vijaya Thursday, 19 February 2015 05:40 PM

    Sorry buddy I cannot stop laughing. You are a fine joker. Thank you

    Dev Thursday, 19 February 2015 02:45 PM

    Ask that from the people who came there even without a major political party throwing their weight behind this. Imaging a rally for My3 or Ranil after they retire.

    Dammika Thursday, 19 February 2015 10:18 PM

    Are you stupid or what? How else people from outstations supposed to come? Just the same way people are hiring buses to go see MR, they come in hired buses. Simple as that!

    True Sri Lankan Thursday, 19 February 2015 05:48 PM

    Sunil ..MR changed the SL foreign Service to Family service, MIRA Air Port such a waste Mihin lanka such a wate white van abuductions No Media Freedom ..

Bribed the other part positions and spilt many political parties mega jumbo cabinet - its a world record ETC... YOU CAN WRITE PAGES ABOUT HIS COURRUPTIONS, HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE AND DICTATORSHIPSLSL NEED A LEADERS LIKE MS AND RW

    Jeers Friday, 20 February 2015 03:50 PM

    Maithree and ranil must be pissing in their pants now along with mangala too

    Euclid Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:01 PM

    I was at Nugegada last evening. Over 90% brought from outside in hired private buses.The buses where parked in bylanes away from public view.

    It was a success in creating a bigger block and inconveniencing people. Something that we were happy to see put away after the 8th of January

    Do he like to bring his sons also

    Eds Thursday, 19 February 2015 06:11 PM

    Well you were the ones who voted for My3, not us. Besides ranil is a known traitor!

    Dev Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:13 PM

    Should outstation people come by walking? People organized and came by buses for the country for nothing. Time for you to get on-board too.

    Ukkun Putha Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:13 PM

    President Maithripala did not ask for the leadership of the SLFP but the acceptance of the leadership of SLFP is ethically wrong as the SLFP (supporters) voted against his policies.

    Anusha Atapattu Thursday, 19 February 2015 06:17 PM

    After seeing the crowd Susil is singing a new song now. Before the meeting they said the meeting had been organized by a fraction of SLFP which has nothing to do with them and they are not going to support. Why change words now?

    dcn Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:14 PM

    It is natural even some of the neutral people also attend such meetings through curiosity. No big deal. They get carried away and fool themselves.

    Rush Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:14 PM

    Who is trying to become the executive prime minister through a constitutional coup?

    Kelaniya Some Friday, 20 February 2015 12:42 PM

    Poor Ranil, just 100 days PM

    La Wijaya Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:19 PM

    I thought Mr Susil Premajayantha is a honest intelligent politician, whatever party he belongs. Now it seems a opportunist. If I were him I would have kept my mouth shut. As somebody said, unaware to himself, he is giving a free ride to Ranil

    Tilak Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:22 PM

    I live in Nugegoda at Stanley Tilakaratna Mawatha. Our road as well as all the adjoining roads have used to park the buses and vans in the afternoon of 18th. That is how they brought the people to the meeting.

    Niyama Sinhalaya Friday, 20 February 2015 04:55 PM

    Mr.Susil your still look good but unfortunatly you were with the corrupted MR anyhow He is no more do not support any rallys which oppose to your present chairman MS for party not for MR and spoil your political life tc

    WIN SL Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:35 PM

    Mr.Susil your asking for trouble. MR will not to come because he loves the country. Disaster with revenge.............pls dont

    Afee Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:44 PM

    Like how Sarath Fonseka was arrested during the past election, similar way MR will be arrested too.

    Nish Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:47 PM

    Yeah people should have packed food and water on 10th of February and come walking. Nobody organized these people, that is the point here.

    Corrupt Free Lankan Thursday, 19 February 2015 07:08 PM

    Looks like only MR is capable of running this country and nobody else. Most of the viewers support MR for what. Is he honest and not a dictator.

    sudu Saturday, 21 February 2015 06:32 PM

    Are you not ashamed to even talk of Mr he is a man who has robbed our country,and so utterly corrupt! I think all of you Want him back so that you crooks could continue to rob.

    Bala Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:47 PM

    Yes mega projects for mega rich - let the poor suffer. Good attitude for a revolution to start.

    Jay2 Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:48 PM

    batting for assad sali are we?

    Sira Thursday, 19 February 2015 07:18 PM

    MR changed the laws to contest election for ever and be President for ever. So how can he stay at home after loosing the elections, he has to find a way to come back, Poor people are exploited saying he wanted. The truth is 52% did not want him, so leave with dignity

    kamal Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:49 PM

    Lot to be come out from the on going investigations, after these results MR and goons may need to find jungles to hide than contesting for the upcoming election.

    obama Thursday, 19 February 2015 07:23 PM

    ha ha ha he is day dreaming.maybe he can win but his party must win with majority to get the post of PM.anyway SLFP OR UPFA what ever split to peaces..we need gentlmans to our assembly . not the thugs or courrupt politicians.when a election come you will see. no one was here will win .they can live in prison rest of their life.

    This guy is avoiding real issues to save his skin.

    mohamed Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:56 PM

    Susil dont play double game we Ari Lankan know about your and your former ministers we will teach you a good lesson in the next election wait and see

    alfie Thursday, 19 February 2015 03:59 PM

    Are you referring to Ranil who hung around with 21 losses or MR with 1 loss (and really won where it mattered )

    chux Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:03 PM

    People should not get caught to these artificial politicians any more

    Mevan Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:09 PM

    In the very complex formula of SLFP who will be next PM if SLFP wins, MARA or Nimal Siri.

    Nisha Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:09 PM

    Dear Mr.Sunil PereaAppreciate your wordings very much

    Roshan Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:22 PM

    why questioning here.. people should come to a rally by bus , train or personal vehicle. it does not matter. Mahinda has done good job. but we cannot agree with Namal

    Premalal Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:24 PM

    At least he was not accused of plundering the country by his own party.

    Sam Thursday, 19 February 2015 08:00 PM

    MR is great leader Sri Lanka ever had. People will die for him. All these negative publicity is well planned western conspiracy lead by Ranil the traitor. The people commenting against MR should check their family tree see some one up there in the tree ( previous generation, mother , father) born outside Sri Lanka.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 20 February 2015 10:33 AM

    This four (04) footer is an opportunist. He can dance for any music. I can even tame him right now.

    kukula Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:28 PM

    Very true, if Mr Susil P had gone down Mirihana/Jubli post all out station buses were parked by the road side. Who is fooling whom?

    kukula Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:31 PM

    Hi Sunil leopards will not change its spots, and besides my gut feeling is Gota and basil will behind bars and probably MR too.

    Premalal Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:31 PM

    Plundered money at work.

    kukula Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:33 PM

    Boss they use disposable pampers.

    Desmond Jeromme Friday, 20 February 2015 10:38 AM

    Susil is also subjected for investigation by CID. He has Mansions abroard on his family members name. (True information)

    Inayathullah Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:35 PM

    This is a very dangerous situation. Being a national organizer Susil Premajayantha was with present president Mitree yesterday. Today he is supporting and and backing the Mahinda backed meeting. I make a humble request to the present President Mitreepala to seriously think of the stance of Susil Premajayantha as he would repeat to the same job previously Attanayake did for Ranil.

    Bubble Banda Friday, 20 February 2015 10:39 AM

    Better die now or commit suicide for the sake of Mahinda. How many millions you got from him?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 20 February 2015 10:40 AM

    Are you one of the person washing clothes to Mahinda at Carlton?

    senakak Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:43 PM

    anyone can accuse someone else but producing hard evidences would be the task. in the absence of such evidence it is always better to zip the back- passage.

    Sarath Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:44 PM

    What a timid fellow is this guy , Susil Prem Jayanth ? How can he say that the meeting is successful? He even does not know that he is the national organizer of SLFP. He should have immediately expelled from the party based on this foolish statement. He is still under obligation to Mahinda and all other crooks behind this culprit. It is good to have a National organizer like Prem Jayanth for SLFP since the party will be definitely divided before the next election and this 57 lacks of votes will be vanished soon since the voters if they are still thinking of SLFP, they will realize what the real SLFP now.

    senakak Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:47 PM

    who gives a F how did they come? the important issue was they were there in there thousands still will be back when needed next tine and thereafter.

    Black jack Thursday, 19 February 2015 04:49 PM

    Poor srilankans still trust these rogues and corrupted politicians

    Premalal Thursday, 19 February 2015 02:14 PM

    So you want to bring MR the man accused by your current chairman MS of being the most corrupt and the most abusive president of this country.

    Dammika Thursday, 19 February 2015 05:05 PM

    all people came bcz of Mahinda only, Mahinda will be next PM we will die for that,,, get out

    Rajan Thursday, 19 February 2015 02:15 PM

    How many buses were hired (by paying money unlike previously where it would have been absorbed by the Government) to bring people from the Outstation.

    Dammika Thursday, 19 February 2015 05:08 PM

    all people have come for Mahinda only, our hero, no one can stop it, he will be elected as next PM,,, cheers........ UPNer and our brother do not too think much...

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 19 February 2015 02:22 PM

    "Aasai, Bayai neda?"

    Rotten Tomatoes Thursday, 19 February 2015 05:17 PM

    This man Susil is still power hungry. He and the UPFA members are starving for power. They all had a wonderful time during the last ten years..Each of them had their own kingdom.thats enough. .

    kan Thursday, 19 February 2015 02:30 PM

    So much ego. Still power hungry.
