Video: Wimal accuses media over Sirikotha clash

25 December 2014 04:33 pm - 18     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Minister Wimal Weerawansa today accused the media of being biased in their reports on the clash that erupted before the Sirikotha Wednesday morning when a protest was staged by a group named ‘The Federation of National Organizations’ that is said to be affiliated to his party – the National Freedom Front (NFF).


“Is this so-called free-media blind? It was not a clash! It was clearly an attack that was launched on the innocent protestors by UNP MP Mujibur Rahuman and his thugs,” he charged.


He also commented on the crude comments that were made on former President Chandrika Kumaratunga by Higher Education Minister SB Dissanayake.


“Anyone has the freedom to make comments. In fact I don’t believe that people would see anything wrong with such comments made by Minister Dissanayake – both the UNP-ers and SLFP-ers agree with him on his statements on her,” he said.

    Their stance is in their manifesto - they have no time to comment on silly jokers like Wimal

    According to his own formula 2/2 =0 , Weerawansa is nothing but zero, hollow , empty and stupid.

    Very good heart warming speech. People want to know the UNP stance on 13 Amendment and withdrawal of the army from the North. Why are Ranil and Sirisena avoiding these issues?

    What more can you except from a person like wimal weerawansa. How can any sane person endorse the shameless statement made by none other than the minister of higher education of this country. It is no surprise that the education sector in sri lanka has plunged into such low levels.

    Wimal, please find a place to hide.

    Good video by DM. it clearly shows in the background weerasangili wimalasena (wimal W.) thugs armed with clubs and police protection.

    Is this the same Weerawansa who was criticizing the government so ruthlessly just a couple of months ago??. This is a fraudulent document, everybody knows that including idiotic Wimalawansa. So what is the basis for this big protest right in front of Srikotha. From the behavior of the protesters, it is quite evident that they have come prepared for an armed disruption. A bunch of paid thugs and cheap low level women.They got what they deserved.Vichy

    Ram Friday, 26 December 2014 02:43 AM

    A person making a similar comment on a government VIP may not be safe at all. Weerawansa will say what SB said is acceptable because he is modawansa
