State Minster Rosy Senanayake today challenged former president Mahinda Rajapaksa to disclose the names of ministers and deputy ministers he claimed to have safeguarded and to reveal the wrongdoings he claimed to have committed and should do so before submitting nominations on July 13.
“Mr. Rajapaksa on three occasions had claimed that he safeguarded ministers and deputy ministers who committed frauds and illegal activities during his tenure as president and admitted that he had compelled the law enforcement agencies to release the wrongdoers. He must reveal these wrongdoings before submitting nominations,”she told a news conference.
Ms. Senanayake said Mr. Rajapaksa and his colleagues were trying to return to power not to develop or protect the country but to rob its wealth and resources.
“Are his sycophants aiming to bring Mr. Rajapaksa back to power to prevent them from being interrogated by the FCID”, she asked.
Ms. Senanayake said the UNP would not leave room for Mr. Rajapaksa to be the Prime Minister of this country and added that the people should keep an eye on those who were nominated by the UPFA. (Ajith Siriwardana)

TRUE, ACTION SHOULD BE TAKEN AGAINST HIM FOR STOPPING BRUTALITY OF TERRORISM

This woman is another piece of shit...a pauper

The law enforcement authorities must take action against Mahinda Rajapakse. Safeguarding someone who has committed fraud and compelling authorities to release wrongdoers amounts to aiding and abetting criminals, and is a punishable offence.

YES ROSY, NUMBER ONE IN THE LIST WILL BE MR HIMSELF ............

Venura 4. his greed for power via DM Android App
venura Friday, 10 July 2015 03:26 PM
Very correct. He aspires to grab power due to three reasons. 1. To close all charges against him, his family, and his cohorts. 2. To plunder more wealth. 3. To groom one of his princes to be the next leader there by creating a dynasty (end of democracy).

Rosie people will give the correct verdict to Ali Baba and his thieves. Do not waste your time challenging MR. He will never take up a challenge. So concentrate on winning the GE and try to wipe out the rogues from the political scene.
J R Rajasinghe Friday, 10 July 2015 03:35 PM
sorry Rosy you are too late. MR and his lot is much better than your lot. People saw the UNP true colour for the past seven months.
BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 10 July 2015 03:39 PM
This is like the Judge asking the rapist whether he enjoyed the rape.
Onlooker Friday, 10 July 2015 03:42 PM
Rosy looking for some positive exposure before polls.
Sikuru Friday, 10 July 2015 03:42 PM
Rosy is a example for a Woman in politics who use brains, I hope she wins the election with flying colors
prasantha Friday, 10 July 2015 03:45 PM
People saw the MR true colour for the past 10 Years
Dalu Banda Friday, 10 July 2015 03:46 PM
Rosa Akki, it is more wise and productive to tell voters about your party proposal planned to carry out in the next 4-5 years for well being of the people, rather than challenging MR for wrongdoings .
Senasuru Monday, 13 July 2015 09:48 AM
Sikuru, do you use Sikuru bar soap ? Just wondering.
Domiya Friday, 10 July 2015 03:49 PM
Yes Rajasinghe, MR and his lot showed exactly what they are capable of didnt they???- That they are willing to stand against anything good for the country that will be proposed by the Governing party (19th and 20th amendment, right to info bill etc.)- Shout in filth in front of school children and disgrace the parliament and our country,- Turn the parliament into a joke when they sat down in parliament playing cards and drinking to bring back the so called shit of a King- Undermine the police and law and order of the country by standing up against investigations.- Lying from all ends to mislead the people.If not for Yahapalanaya all these crooks are still at large because it believes in a system where people are innocent until proven guilty. Be grateful for these 7 months where media was free and you and I can write like we are doing now without threats to our lives. People like you are a cancer to this country men. That is why our country is stagnated and cannot progress.
Maggi Friday, 10 July 2015 03:52 PM
Stupid you are. If you have any charges bring it out. When Rajapakse romps home he will reveal his full self to you.
Dharmakeerthi Friday, 10 July 2015 03:55 PM
Looking for some cheap publicity. When they declare elections results you will know how many people love MR in this country.
Senasuru Monday, 13 July 2015 09:52 AM
SIkuru uncle, flying colours means Mihin Lanka or Srilankanu ?
Sikuru Friday, 10 July 2015 03:56 PM

Kumar Friday, 10 July 2015 04:04 PM
dont waste your energy and precious time Rosy, you are asking Ali ba ba to name his clan of 40 thieves, this will never happen !You must focus on getting UNP across the line....
de silva Friday, 10 July 2015 04:05 PM
You have asked the question from the wrong person.Even if he is to reveal the names,nobody will trust him anymore.
patriot Friday, 10 July 2015 04:08 PM
Rosy is just a mouthpiece. UNP seems to be terrific after MR is coming.
Aruna Friday, 10 July 2015 04:10 PM
Have you raised your voice for any misshapen to a child or a woman in the country for the past six months except holding a banner for that girl in Jaffna died?
Fernandez Friday, 10 July 2015 04:22 PM
This is a woman who was cut and polished by Sirasa to become a politician. Now trying to gain some points by bad mouthing MR. Pathetic!

R.D. Wicks. Friday, 10 July 2015 04:26 PM
The people in the country will decide who is honest and who is dishonest. Our people are wise except a foolish few.
Onlooker Friday, 10 July 2015 04:29 PM
If you have been following Rosy for a couple of years you note that he has no brains.
Sana Friday, 10 July 2015 04:34 PM
Your yahapalanam govt should have done something about the "charges" while in power. Now too late son.
Nona Friday, 10 July 2015 04:35 PM

Their plan is to get thousands of western and eastern investments to create a million jobs, building thousands of houses and upgrade the public transport and even make Electric trains
kukula. Friday, 10 July 2015 04:54 PM
Wake up man and realize the truth. MR can not come to power to protect criminals and crocks. Mr was bold enough to openly threteen those wanting to leave UPFA.
