    D D knows NO DIGNITY. He should have resigned immediately after the Presidential election. GOODBYE.

    The choice is dignity or life. Hard choice for a man wth a family.

    citizen1 Thursday, 27 January 2011 04:15 PM

    Good to know that people recognize the word! However the actuality is that the qualities you mentioned are long gone from our society almost to the point of extinction.

    dxb Thursday, 27 January 2011 10:28 AM

    Yes , you are right; it is beacuse of Ranil's dignity , he does not know how to cheat ,he is from a respective place and brought up in a very respectable level with Daham .

    We need people like Dr, hooligans ,etc

    Lakmikanth Thursday, 27 January 2011 10:42 AM

    Ranjith de silva Thursday, 27 January 2011 11:05 AM

    Dayananda is anther man who even scared of his own shadow. Better if he leaves the office now and never to come back

    bandula Thursday, 27 January 2011 12:04 PM

    karuna Thursday, 27 January 2011 06:41 AM

    nagulendran Thursday, 27 January 2011 06:46 AM

    When are you going to Retire?

    channa Thursday, 27 January 2011 06:48 AM

    It time to you and RW to Retire.....How many elections has the UNP lost?

    Hishy Friday, 28 January 2011 04:19 AM

    Karu is trying put this poor guy into trouble in his long past retiring age.

    Cobra Thursday, 27 January 2011 12:38 PM

    No Sir, DD is a super humbug and a nincompoop to boot. He will not retire until he has no more ........ .

    Cobra Thursday, 27 January 2011 12:39 PM

    Show that he has dignity, that's what he could do.

    Sue Thursday, 27 January 2011 06:54 AM

    Mr. Dayananda lost his dignity and his self respect at the conclusion of the last Presidential election. The UNP leader RW on the other hand does not seem to have any dignity at all and still hanving on when everyone wants him out.

    Shanil Thursday, 27 January 2011 06:58 AM

    Ironic coming from the UNP don't you think.....

    Tharaka Chanaka Thursday, 27 January 2011 07:00 AM

    Have we ever had a free and fair election for this guy to be proud about in the first place?

    Ryan Thursday, 27 January 2011 07:06 AM

    UNP talking dignity of people, what a joke, they were throwing stones at judges houses and dragging Profs along the road, where was the concern for dignity then? Best this is to prevent UNP coming to power in order to protect dignity of people.

    MISSION IMPOSSIBLE

    Anver Thursday, 27 January 2011 07:05 AM

    He should not retire with trembling voice and shaking hands in his final election speech! Wish him well.

    Gamarala Thursday, 27 January 2011 07:10 AM

    He does not know the meaning of Dignity after President election

    Labby Thursday, 27 January 2011 07:08 AM

    What could Dayananda Dissanayake do when he's threatened at gunpoint ?

    SF Thursday, 27 January 2011 07:11 AM

    DIGNITY! Good to hear the word been used. I thought this word was long removed from our vocabulery along with certain other words such as integrity, loyalty, modesty, honour etc

    wara Thursday, 27 January 2011 07:15 AM

    It's not commissioners fault. Only the incapability of UNP including Ranil. Nothing else.
