Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa said today the true Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) was with him and that he was the one who protected its policies.
He made these comments when he visited the Madurawala Pradeshiya Sabha in Horana this morning while on his way to a wedding.
Mr. Rajapaksa told the media that he had been invited to the rally to be held in Kandy today to canvass support for his prime ministerial candidacy at the next General Elections but had not confirmed his participation.
Several former ministers including Kumara Welgama came to meet him having heard of his presence at the Madurawala PS. (Buddika Kumarasiri)

This is only a drama. true story is MR will help Ranil to become prime minister by doing this campaign. New regime will not do any harm to MR or his relatives for that he will give his support to bring UNP government.Any way we are fools.Hemantha

Your eyes speak the truth. Wimal and the clan trying to put you in further disrepute. You must keep your respect you earned till 2010 at least and keep away from politics. Your own mistakes and the conduct of Basil and some of your favorite political henchmen brought your repectful political life to this stage. please understand this.

Majority of Sri lankans want you back as others have failed miserably
C.Rathnasiri Friday, 06 March 2015 02:16 PM
Grass root level SLPERs are with MR.Those who are dreaming for PM candidature will be dump soon
Sundram Friday, 06 March 2015 02:23 PM
Yes, The true Srilankans (Tamils and Sinhalese) are always with SLFP not with UNP or allied with UNP.
kamal Friday, 06 March 2015 02:37 PM
You were a real headache for us, so please mind your business and stay in Madamulana. Those days you crated an environment of Live and Let die others. Now we all are living without fear of white van.
abay Friday, 06 March 2015 02:39 PM
Even SLFP or UNP won the next election MY 3 going to appoint RW as Prime Minister because he has executive powers. Just like when he appointed RW last presidential election.That is why SLFP does not want to name Prime Minister.
Ranasinghe Friday, 06 March 2015 02:44 PM
We are with you MR
katie Friday, 06 March 2015 02:48 PM

noor Friday, 06 March 2015 03:36 PM
Sure he is cooking something. He is using some techniques to fool people and he is good in it. He looks so innocent these days but not in reality. People should be alert.
vithura Friday, 06 March 2015 03:39 PM
A picture of how naked a man looks when the power he abused with arrogance is stripped off him.....his face says it all.
iemerald Friday, 06 March 2015 04:24 PM
NO NO RAJAPAKSE. IT IS THE DREGS OF THE OLD REGIME ARE WITH YOU ALONG WITH THE LEMMINGS THAT FOLLOW THEM.AND OF COURSE NOT FORGETTING THE RAPISTS MURDERERS DRUG BARONS AND FRAUDSTERS.
surasena Friday, 06 March 2015 04:34 PM
Well,you are not among the so called "True SLFP" while there were busy in Nogegoda and may be in Kandy. You need to make the future of Namal via the proper SLFP, just drop your double standards. Time to say "good bye" for your scoundrel political carrier.
citizen Friday, 06 March 2015 04:58 PM
What right former president to visit PS and have press conference. Is it yahapalanaya. Some donkeys in Srilankans still think that MR has power.
Sudi Sundaram Friday, 06 March 2015 05:07 PM
Sundram what the hell are you talking ?

Oh! Signs of desperation?
chamode Friday, 06 March 2015 12:04 PM
No MR, true SLFP are with MS not someone who diluted SLFP with frogs for own political gain.
lankasantha Friday, 06 March 2015 12:07 PM
Yes, Yes. I saw people are being taken in Colombo in buses to go to Kandy meeting, today morning. Ane, don;t spend your hard earned money for nothing.
edward theophilus Friday, 06 March 2015 12:14 PM
There is no doubt that Mr Rajapakse will lead Sri lanka again. He has already learnt a lesson and entire country is now with him.
Goviya Friday, 06 March 2015 07:05 PM
True SLFP is with me.....? Does it mean that only rogues, drug dealers, ethanol dealers, rapists, money launderers, thieves and stooges are in the SLFP.....?
nimeshp69 Thursday, 12 March 2015 11:17 AM
grateful people who love country are with MR. I voted for MR (not for party ) and will vote for him in future too.

Very True - The true SLFP-ers with MR are the filthy rogues, plunderers and shit-cart mouthed degenerates.
SLFP voter Friday, 06 March 2015 12:36 PM
we all are with MR, he saved the country
anura Friday, 06 March 2015 12:47 PM
Mahinda Rajapaksa should be in the parliament. He definitely deserves another chance to finish the unfinished bussiness. He definitely must have learnt the bitter lesson for having corrupt people around him to tarnish his name.
Dammika Friday, 06 March 2015 12:55 PM
60% of sinhalese with MR, our great leader,,,, we are with him,,,
Hussain Saturday, 07 March 2015 06:52 AM
If you come to power.country will be Somalia in the Asia. God bless you. Do not come to power again.
Perumal Friday, 06 March 2015 07:55 PM
Of course the true SLFP consists of Wimal, Vasudeva, Johnston, Dayasiri, Gammanpila who are with MR
