Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe today warned that a revolution similar to Tunisia would be inevitable in Sri Lanka if the price of one kilo of rice increases up to Rs 125 as expected.

Addressing a rally in Gampaha Mr. Wickremesinghe said the price of rice is slated to increase during the time of National New Year as the governments lack a proper vision for the country. (YP)

    Try to build up your Party, before worrying about Tunisia

    Susanthi Abeysekara Monday, 31 January 2011 11:15 AM

    Hi Ranil, Good to hear from you. Where have you been?

    GG Activist Monday, 31 January 2011 08:25 AM

    Thats true. However, he is the prime contry buter for his unpopularity. Curse of SL, he cannot be helped.

    palitha Rajapaksa Monday, 31 January 2011 03:08 AM

    there is no proper leadership for revolution if there is good leader revolution would have taken place last year.

    consciousview Sunday, 30 January 2011 01:58 PM

    Very soon there will be unrest among the UNP supporter if you don't step down!!!

    Citizen Sunday, 30 January 2011 02:03 PM

    perumal Sunday, 30 January 2011 02:20 PM

    Mahinda has a vision and a country for his vision.

    dutugamunu Sunday, 30 January 2011 02:22 PM

    Konde bendapu china Sunday, 30 January 2011 02:24 PM

    The man who can lead sri lanka for development !
    The best in ASIA after Mahathma Ghandi !
    most can't understand his capabilities and discipline
    GENIUS

    perumal Sunday, 30 January 2011 02:53 PM

    Just see what a gentleman he is. He tries to assist MR by giving prior warning and impliedly asking him to be ready.

    DHA Sunday, 30 January 2011 02:53 PM

    Will u be the leader of this revolution too.....? {A frog always gives away its hiding place cos of his mouth and Sir u r no exception}....

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Sunday, 30 January 2011 02:57 PM

    quite true ! and there will be one within the party as well, by the rank and file, if he continues as leader till around the same time

    Roshan Monday, 31 January 2011 04:30 AM

    As far as you are the leader of opposition there won't be any revolution, MR knows about this.

    Anushka Sunday, 30 January 2011 03:39 PM

    Do you plan to lead the revolution sir? Then we already know how it will end.

    Steve Sunday, 30 January 2011 03:40 PM

    This could only happen if his party and JVP are behind plotting it.

    daham Sunday, 30 January 2011 04:00 PM

    Sir, do you have a proper vision for your party at least?

    Rushdi Sunday, 30 January 2011 03:57 PM

    Ranil is still DAY DREAMING

    pandula Sunday, 30 January 2011 04:06 PM

    It may be within UNP too.

    Gongalegodabanda! Sunday, 30 January 2011 04:10 PM

    First Tunisia, Now Egypt, Next ?

    perera Monday, 31 January 2011 04:42 AM

    DSR-Neckar Sunday, 30 January 2011 04:48 PM

    Another day dream!!!

    sunilkaha Sunday, 30 January 2011 04:45 PM

    Why are you telling that early? As usual you are helping Mahinda to prepare for that.

    Bonda Sunday, 30 January 2011 04:58 PM

    Who is going to spearhead the revolution not you.....

    lovely Sunday, 30 January 2011 04:59 PM

    loku aiya Sunday, 30 January 2011 05:37 PM

    True... but we are senseless, spineless, mindless people! We won't care, we'll be hoping for 'Subha Anagathayak' in dreams....

    mrmr Monday, 31 January 2011 05:27 AM

    UNP

    shace-UK Sunday, 30 January 2011 05:55 PM

    Athil Monday, 31 January 2011 05:35 AM

    Sri lanakans do not have the gut.

    gka Monday, 31 January 2011 05:45 AM

    WONDER WHAT RANIL'S ALTERNATIVE IS FOR A BETTER PRICE? THE REVOLUTION MIGHT TAKE PLACE WITHIN THE UNP ONE OF THESE DAYS.

    Calm Monday, 31 January 2011 05:48 AM

    Sri Lankans are too feeble to revolt, and also they do not have a strong leader who could lead them.

    Rahmathullah Sunday, 30 January 2011 07:03 PM

    Tunisia and Egypt have some Opposition members with backbone. But, I don't see it in our country. So the chances are very remote.

    finoen Sunday, 30 January 2011 07:20 PM

    Cant he step down? Cant vote for the UNP as long as this idiot is in charge.

    raj Sunday, 30 January 2011 07:30 PM

    sri lanka is the country that claim it ca create peace by justifying crimes.

    PJay Sunday, 30 January 2011 07:35 PM

    Always comes up with the worst comment damaging the UNP. What a loose cannon!

    Devaka Monday, 31 January 2011 09:41 AM

    The only revolution that would happen is within the UNP

    Karuna Ammaan Sunday, 30 January 2011 08:31 PM

    There are many in the country who understands RW but the educated does not have a say in the fools paradise

    citizen1 Sunday, 30 January 2011 08:55 PM

    double vision!

    citizen1 Sunday, 30 January 2011 08:57 PM

    Although smart, he doesn't know when to shut up!

    Ran Sunday, 30 January 2011 09:21 PM

    UNP

    samith Sunday, 30 January 2011 10:20 PM

    It is not a time to talking such a stupid things. Please step-down from your leadership. It is good for the party then for the country.

    canuck Sunday, 30 January 2011 10:35 PM

    Revolutions are not lead by capitalists like you Ranil, they are lead by the people...

    Kalani Raja Sunday, 30 January 2011 10:55 PM

    First of all do you have a proper vision for your party?

    KD Sunday, 30 January 2011 11:00 PM

    Rohan Monday, 31 January 2011 12:12 AM

    You like it and must be dreaming you can become the next President. Flat Hopes!
    Why don't you step down from your party and let a better leader be the UNP leader.

    varathan Monday, 31 January 2011 12:16 AM

    Percy Mandawala Monday, 31 January 2011 12:25 AM

    If that happpens, the man who sacrificed most to the nation will be the leader.Certainly not you. You have no spine to lead such a revolution

    SL Boy Monday, 31 January 2011 12:26 AM

    Having election is the problem in SL.

    Cobra Monday, 31 January 2011 01:34 AM
