    Hussein Monday, 11 February 2013 07:50 PM

    007, who is your real oppsition? Sajith? SF? JVP ? They are all outdated in the minds of Srilankan people! Wait and see !
    I agree Ranil is also outdated.

    Nandana Tuesday, 12 February 2013 07:19 AM

    Hi to all the Readers,

    As proud Sri lankan let me applaude all of you for atleast trying to do something right,

    I dont care whether you succeed or not atleast i know you guys tried.

    The only way to succeed your mission is by enlightning people and telling the truth,

    Q 1. If you form a GVT will you take people who are working in the current GVT

    Q 3. Will you tell the people the truth in what you are going to do and how you are going to achieve your goals,

    Q 4. This is to Mr.Ranil Wickramasinghe i will fight for the country any given time if you can promise us that you will tell the truth in your ellection manifesto and you will enlighten the people on the truth of our countries situation and how you plan to walk us through this.

    Regards
    Nandana

    That is he is telling he will be in opposition for life and will not allow anyone to be the opposition leader. In other words he declares he has no intention to be a ruling leader ever.

    007 Monday, 11 February 2013 08:38 PM

    He has no support from the Singhalese.

    Your are wrong. You are not part of the opposition. You are part of the regime. You will see the real opposition at the next election.

    Oh, there's an opposition movement in Sri Lanka ? :O !!! That's nice to hear !

    saman Monday, 11 February 2013 12:00 AM

    this is led by MR's minister opposition leader. therefore it is fishy when RW says there can't be other oppositions. message is clear RW wants a puppet opposition. RW is scared JVP will pose a threat to MR. bogus opposition of MR led by RW will not last long! via DM Android App

    This is another joke same as our government, we need a proper opposition, need more intellectuals. never heard of some the parties mentioned here.

    premalal Monday, 11 February 2013 11:10 PM

    Ranil made a balanced statement on anti Muslim campaign of some Sinhala extremists.People like Ahmad cannot look at any thing impartially as they look at everything through their religion.

    Mason Tuesday, 12 February 2013 08:28 AM

    RW, will you give us a Road Map and Time Table as to what your activities are going to be for the next two years.

    Devaka Tuesday, 12 February 2013 08:34 AM

    Ranil must be very disappointed with Mahinda for not giving him a ministry in the cabinet reshuffle

    Toothless opposition - run by a dictator, sign by equal day dreamers ...Miracle of Asia

    malkanthi Tuesday, 12 February 2013 01:59 AM

    In politics, an organized minority is a political majority. But RW has not proven as a reliable leader. Dictators always look good until the last minutes.

    Jamal Tuesday, 12 February 2013 05:58 AM

    Strange Bed Fellows. In politics, there is no friendship but personal interests. Mr. Sally, Have you forgotten your words that Ranil lost 23 elections ?

    MR & RW's ploy to further weaken the UNP.

    Guys, we are not talkig about religion here, this about our country and its future.
    this is a real serious stituation , this about what we are going to give for our kids in future a democratic country or otherwise

    ranilrajapssaspukkol Monday, 11 February 2013 04:38 PM

    True opposition should from general sarath fonseka and shiranne bandaranayake. Ranil will act like opposition but he will favor the rajapassa thieves.

    ari Tuesday, 12 February 2013 03:02 AM

    You suggested the referendum instead of an election.what Vorodaya you talk about.You are such a useless person and 90% of the UNP strong members have crossed over and never in history of UNP members crossed over to SLFP led government.It was opposite till you become the leader..YOu don't know how to protest so for get about your VIRODAYA please.You will never win election and you do nto want to win too...

    Clifford Tuesday, 12 February 2013 06:14 AM

    I am not quite sure that this method will work? You need to have a strong and a bold leader to topple this government

    Contragulation Ranil & other leaders of the Vipakshaye Virodhaya...Time is right now to end this Rajapaksha Ruling. we are with you.

    Andrew Pitugala Tuesday, 12 February 2013 03:17 AM

    Ranil is a willing accomplice of the Rajapakse regime, and is greatly benefited as the leader of the opposition and has not achieved anything for the people who voted for the UNP.

    Devaka Wednesday, 13 February 2013 05:59 AM

    Dear Observer Observer, until Ranil, is chased away nothing will happen to the Rajapakse regime.

    Monarawila Monday, 11 February 2013 06:00 PM

    Yes, that is the way to go. Bringing UNP in to power means bringing another set of theives.
