Video: Vasu a dried pumpkin - Ranil

22 May 2015 09:24 am - 77     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today hit back at UPFA MP Vasudeva Nanayakkara saying he is a ‘dried pumpkin’ who had lost the prime of his life.

A heated argument ensued between the MP and the Prime Minister in the parliament yesterday with Mr. Nanayakkara reportedly using obscenities against the Prime Minister.

“He is a dried pumpkin. This is how defeated people behave,” the Prime Minister said when referring to Mr. Nanayakkara’s use of language and his theatrics in parliament.

He made these comments when he met United National Party (UNP) activists at Sirikotha in Kotte. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    This called frustration of a looser. (Vasu) is devalued coin.

    farsighted Sunday, 24 May 2015 03:12 PM

    It is Ranil who is the eunuch, Vasudeva is as virile as he used to be, It is the circumstances under which Vasu used those words that should be looked at, Ranil deserves worse than that,

    This man is a very ignorant man and is acting like an idiot, unlike what a statesman should.

    Cheers Friday, 22 May 2015 03:32 PM

    You are rotten

    Rubert Vanderkoon Friday, 22 May 2015 03:32 PM

    He is a dried pumpkin but you are a moronic species who should never hold any high office. I have not seen another PM speaking childishly like a pre-civilisation Disapamok calling fellow MPs to "vaadivenava", "me yakku", "Gihin ahanava" again and again.

    Wrong way as usual - invextigate 2012 to 2014 first as they were crimes committed first.

    The God Father Friday, 22 May 2015 03:41 PM

    Agree, there are few of them in the same calibre and they can not be even used in the soup.

    Redna Friday, 22 May 2015 03:45 PM

    It is time that useless human specimen Vasudeva retires from Politics. He is of no use to anyone!

    Haaaa....had a good laugh after a long time.....haaaa

    Statesman? What?What?

    Push Friday, 22 May 2015 03:53 PM

    He used filth in the supreme parliament. This was on FB as a motion picture. Throwing a gush of abuse at the country’s Prime Minister in the supreme parliament only shows Vasu has lost all what he had beyond doubt. I wonder if he deserves to be a representative of the people.

    And must be looking at title of ugliest bastard in parliament?

    mohan B. Friday, 22 May 2015 09:17 PM

    Idiot he is great if he could topple the former regime - vasu is a dried pumpkin for sure

    chandra Friday, 22 May 2015 03:59 PM

    That means you too behave like Vasu before Jan 8 2015?

    Dalu Banda Friday, 22 May 2015 04:01 PM

    Well said. His " Massina" is also a cracked personality who could not control his own crowd but making noises. " Dried Pumpkin" is the correct label. Hon. PM could give a label to " Massina" also and I suggest name him as " Great Liar".

    riz Friday, 22 May 2015 09:22 PM

    Wasu is a gud joker and just barking only. Finally he will be zero .

    Supiri Saturday, 23 May 2015 07:47 PM

    Ranil and Co is a bottle of red wine made from grapes , it only gets better

    lokaya Friday, 22 May 2015 09:22 PM

    I think Vasu is a dried snake gourd !

    CitizenPerera Friday, 22 May 2015 04:07 PM

    RW gets his vegetables mixed up all the time. Vasu is not a dried pumpkin but a BITTER-GOAT!

    Lawry Saturday, 23 May 2015 08:44 PM

    In Tamil language a decent way of referring to lavatory cleaner is "Vasu Kutti" . I wonder what his background is.

    sss Friday, 22 May 2015 04:14 PM

    this is the best deal for people = politicians watching each other. If there were mismanagement in CB it should be investigated

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 22 May 2015 09:54 PM

    PM you are correct, in other words - Vasu is a dead vegetable.

    Sunil Saturday, 23 May 2015 09:12 PM

    Vasudeva,an utterly useless impotent politician who has done nothing for the Sri Lankan people except draw a wage for doing simply nothing..Can anyone tell us one single useful thing vasu has done for either the country or any electorate he represented..After all these years he has not even managed to learn the art of decent parliamentary debating.

    OMG Saturday, 23 May 2015 10:24 AM

    Vasu has long passed his useful age. According the original Communist law that Vasi is supposed to be following, useless people should be lined up and shot, so that younger generations can do their part for the betterment of the country.

    Bubble Banda Friday, 22 May 2015 09:56 PM

    Our PM does not criticize anyone easily, but he had given a good name for the rowdy Vasu.

    wa Saturday, 23 May 2015 10:37 AM

    Vasu was gud earlier. once he joined with Wimal Ayya c how cheap hes become. thats what elder people say v should keep our friendship with gud people. via DM Android App

    Horri Jimonis Friday, 22 May 2015 09:57 PM

    In fact, Vasudeva is not coming from a good family back-ground like RW. That is why he used street words....

    Manel Friday, 22 May 2015 04:23 PM

    Not only Vasu but all the codgers who try to remain in parliament by hanging on to the back of MARA are all dried pumpkins.

    C.K.Lankaputhra Friday, 22 May 2015 04:32 PM

    I think a rotten pumpkin. Because it stincs badly.

    Desmond Jeromme Friday, 22 May 2015 10:00 PM

    Rotten egg should have been the right word for scavenger Vasu.

    CITIZEN Friday, 22 May 2015 04:35 PM

    He is also a "eunuch"! This is very evident from the company he keeps!!

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 22 May 2015 10:01 PM

    RW comes from a Royal family and Vasu came from the shanty.... that is why his language is different.

    J Palitha Friday, 22 May 2015 10:03 PM

    We know about Vasudeva .... he was always in the Horse bookies for betting... so its obvious that his language is???

    Domiya Friday, 22 May 2015 10:05 PM

    Who are you to speak upali??? You voted for a thief and he lost. Deal with it without complaining now...

    gamaati Sunday, 24 May 2015 12:02 AM

    vasu is making more votes to lose for the upfa. so their end is imminent.

    pls understand this Friday, 22 May 2015 04:41 PM

    we all now that u are well educated and a decent politician so normally when we speak the truth thrives get pain. that.s whay vasu is barking like this using abuse of words. if he can talk in the parliament like this. how he can behave like this in outside peoples mind can answer for this. All these thieves are being created by the previous regime he is making more pressure internally with his jokers to come into politics again

    Vijith Pieterz Friday, 22 May 2015 10:05 PM

    Beard man knows little bit of English, but his family back-ground is zero. So what else we could expect from this rowdy.

    Domiya Friday, 22 May 2015 10:07 PM

    If you call him an idiot, then in comparison, the rest of the SLFP MPs today are lunatics and uncouth, useless hooligans.

    raj Friday, 22 May 2015 10:13 PM

    Vasu had good reputation before he associated with some politicians who are being accused of human right violations and war crimes.

    raj Friday, 22 May 2015 10:14 PM

    PM is absolutely right!

    dilip Sunday, 24 May 2015 01:40 AM

    Some people may be dried pumpkins,and the others may be dried WAMBOTTU . This is why we need education qualifications, and a age limit for politicians .I think elderly people should leave politics and let the younger generation continue.

    AneHuke Saturday, 23 May 2015 11:55 AM

    I do not think there is a voter base of exceeding 1000 in here (DM) who are pro to the PM. By the way, how many voting people do we have in this country ? Surely, Vasu has way less.

    President Maitree must throw away all old pumpkins in both SLFP and UNP. Young and most inteligent people brought Maithree to power. It is his duty to find a good inteligent far sighted leader to his parliament. All the old pumpkings in SLFP and UNP must be out from politics.

    Ranjith Saturday, 23 May 2015 12:20 PM

    You are a dehydrated cucumber. Useless bugger

    Vimal Carlos Sunday, 24 May 2015 06:27 AM

    Nice answer to the journalist sir. You should your great up bring and the decipline of you alma mater. Vasu is empty on both counts. Knocked out!

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 22 May 2015 05:50 PM

    For a coin to be devalued, it should be of some value at some earlier time. In the case of Vasu, he was never of any single use to this country, absolute eunuch.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 22 May 2015 05:51 PM

    He is useful to MaRa and his band of thieves.

    sobers Saturday, 23 May 2015 01:07 PM

    Vasu is a lost character. For survival in politics he will stoop down to any level.

    It is sad to see an elder statesman like Mr. Vasudeva Nanayakkara falling in to such low levels. May it is the company he is with nowadays.

    Dear Prime minister, since you have so many witnesses heard this unacceptable languages, file a defamation case. The best part is these are the morons who want to lead the country.

    MR. Upali he was accepted by 6.2m people while electing the PResident. Vasu is not to be in the parliment if parliment would dissolved as per 100 day plan. These SLFPer are pusging the MS to keep the parliment for some time so that they can be in power for some time. Parliment shall be dissolved immediately
