    ALE ALE ALE BABA BABA...may god bless sri lanka entering this famine bird into politics

    Mahinda was the president made srilankan economy in to one of the best economy in asia .of course he is the best economical administrater since independence of srilanka but he is a very hard ruler and a dictator. This UNP government is utter poor in economic management. In my eleven years experience in private sector this is the first new year that we did not get our April bonus. Companies are on that much of economic crisis, government does not have money , not even a cent of foreign investment is not coming to srilanka, more and more tax burden on private sector , more than that 99 % of srilankanas are not having a satisfied food that they have entertained in last years , Starvation in villages with out food. This government is going like previous poor administrations like premadasa and chandrika .people are not searching mahinda because they are loving him because of this UNP governments poor performance in economy, this is a bitter truth as voter who voted for MY3 last time

    There could be a mystical attraction towards him from a certain kind of people. Otherwise how can we expect some good and intelligent people going behind him even when his (and his cohorts) deeds were getting exposed daily

    Hey guys, can anyone tell me what MR has in mind.

    Manel Thursday, 16 April 2015 12:11 PM

    13 is a bad number anyway but some people who got a lot of "vasi" from MARA have to feel grateful to him in spite of his whole family plundering the poor of this country for 10 years.

    Dutchy Thursday, 16 April 2015 12:11 PM

    These guys team up to save the country from the evil. How many MPs from the ruling or opposition party met Mi3? A very little...little faith in the BIG BOSS.

    pathetic to note some people supporting MR even after exposure of billions of public money stolen by them.

    Maya Thursday, 16 April 2015 12:50 PM

    All their ideas based on the expectation that Prime Minister will be given more power.These guys are making MY3 to understand what is Executive Presidency means and how MR used it for him and his family.

    ralahamy Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:12 AM

    Very true. But you should say this after the death of Mahinda, because you say only the good things about a dead person.

    No point talking about same old crooks jumping up and down. We must get good educated new people for both parties and make them stronger. We must get rid of all these nonsense small parties getting one or 2 seat and showting like nothing disturbing for everything.

    anura Thursday, 16 April 2015 01:27 PM

    How come some people accuse Mahinda of mass scale corruption before anything is proved? This is absurd. All these people who talk like this were under the beds for their protection during the LTTE terror period.

    Damien Thursday, 16 April 2015 01:30 PM

    Every UPFA MP should forget all past scores and get together to bring Mahinda back and save this country from this mess

    Wimal, Vasu and Dinesh cannot win through their own Party. So they want supporting stick MR to survive in politics. If MR is wise enough, it is better for him to retire from politics like a gentleman politician.

    Bala Thursday, 16 April 2015 02:03 PM

    No exposure because they hid the loot and the pathway to access the loot like expert crooks.

    Sri lankan Thursday, 16 April 2015 02:04 PM

    MR made a deal with Ranil on the 9th Jan morning that he will not be exposed. Why did he meet Ranil and not My3 - to make a deal as Ranil owes for closing Kotte Road to prevent UNP ousting him..

    My personnel view is that the meeting with former chief is meaningful and good. It may respect for new year customs.But if it uses for cheap politics and cue against the democratic situation in the country, cold not be accepted as a very close southerner.Ratnayake- JP

    MR needs to hold significant power in parliament in order to have a functioning democracy in the country. Everyone else in parliament today is a proxy of the ruling cartel.

    Manik Thursday, 16 April 2015 02:33 PM

    Hello Anura, People of SL already experience the proof. No missing journos, no white vans, no tourists being raped by goons, no unnecessary "boru" shows at poor peoples expense, no brothers of same family running (ruining ) the country, no sons being captains of Army and Navy rugger teams, no car races in the sacred city of Kandy against the wishes of Buddist prelates, no more hanky- panky in Sri Lankan air line, no more poor peoples gold from North will be missing and so on and so on. The list is endless my dear Anura and it is very very elementary.

    ranil Friday, 17 April 2015 09:55 AM

    MR is the only person who could save the country again. Corruption is a relative world and can any of say we have never cheated or stolen anything. Even all the allegations against MR and family are true still the money saved by stopping the war is more than that. Most of the comments here are propaganda and sri lankan people are not fools to bellive these lies again
