‘Salon de Mahinda’

30 July 2012 11:38 pm - 26     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday said that the door to the government was similar to that of a salon door.

Commenting on the possibility of a crossover by UNP MP Dayasiri Jayasekara who had met him a few days ago, the President quipped, ‘The door to our government is similar to that of a salon door. If you come from opposite direction you can enter without a problem and if one wants to get out that too is equally possible,”

The President made this remark addressing the print and electronic media editors at Temple Trees.

    That's the most profound seven star democracy he practices, unlike JRJ who took signed letters before hand from every MP when they were elected to the government. Anyone can come and go as they wishes, if they dislike his way of governence and talk whatever the way they want without any restrictions.

    One humble request Hon President, send all your cronic Ministers out through your Saloon Door and bring talented young & active guys like Dayasiri Jayasekera through the same door.

    Jayantha Jayamanne Tuesday, 31 July 2012 05:34 AM

    You could give any examples, but never dream even Dayasiri will come in through your Saloon door, President.

    Nimal Tuesday, 31 July 2012 05:33 AM

    This salon is run with public money and all customers and their kith n kin are paid by tax payers money.

    Minister Tuesday, 31 July 2012 05:29 AM

    Offer a Cabinet portfolio as the bait, Dayasiri will open the salon door to enter at the next second!

    Dee Tuesday, 31 July 2012 05:46 AM

    yes, one comes in for a hair cut and goes out bald headed.

    CHB Tuesday, 31 July 2012 05:35 PM

    Mr President...Get rid of ministers like Mervin Silva. If you are unable to do that he is the owner of the saloon and you are head of the barbers.

    KangarooMan Tuesday, 31 July 2012 06:29 PM

    It seems that that is the best way to pass the message to the masses....

    Anon69 Tuesday, 31 July 2012 07:20 PM

    You are one big Freeking idiot like MR. has no Brains. Auction Your Brain, MRs and Ranils, see who fetch the most. My guess is it will be MR's. Brand spanking new, never used.

    Naman Tuesday, 31 July 2012 07:52 PM

    Naman Tuesday, 31 July 2012 08:01 PM

    Bawa Wednesday, 01 August 2012 08:01 AM

    Nifrazmaestro Wednesday, 01 August 2012 09:07 AM

    whatever said and done. MR seems to b a real hero. if he continuous for another 4,5 years, there'll be no UNP in SL.

    citizen junior Wednesday, 01 August 2012 01:27 AM

    You call yourself a Lankan ?. its an excellent speech, when others tried to pocket in Letters of Resignation for fear of loosing them to opposition, he keeps the doors open allowing free movment- thats democracy.
