Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe speaking a short while ago at the Protest held by UNP Parliamentarians in Hulftsdorp said that what the country needs is Democracy Plus. “Today everything is politicised, the police, the judiciary and everything else has been politicised by the current regime. The people don’t have the freedom enshrined in the constitution and this is nothing but a total dictatorship, as parliamentarians we must, and we will continue to fight this,” he said
Speaking at the protest Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa said that the current regime has failed in all aspects. “The government has messed everything up, they have put the General who led the war in prison illegally and we will fight till he is released,” he said. (Farook Thajudeen)
Ranil you are a non entity in this scenario, Simply because you prove to be one every time you open your mouth.

Mr. Ranil please conduct your self in a Democratic manner for other to follow.

Start with democracy in the UNP which is a total dictatorship now.
Prof: Naleem Ahamed Wednesday, 08 February 2012 05:08 AM
As long as Mr, Ranil is as a leader in the UNP party, we can not expect a good democracy. If we need a leadership change in opositon and should appoint a strong man unlike Ranil. Then definitely we can expect new democray. What we have is now DEMO-CRAZY

how can he talk about democracy of the country when there is no democracy in the UNP.
Ranath Wednesday, 08 February 2012 05:44 AM
First we need democracy in the UNP. Remembers what you have in you house is what you find in your country......!!! Ranil Take a lesson out of the Maldivian President...!!!
Lalindra Wednesday, 08 February 2012 05:51 AM
Ranil should practice what he preaches. He should first practice democracy within his own party before shouting hoarse about the democracy in the country at public meetings.
Trualf Wednesday, 08 February 2012 06:13 AM
You are soo unlucky Ranil Please go home. . Sajith will handlle everything more better then you....

We should learn from Maldives. President Nasim is great gentleman, no more fighting, no more problem, never have thought sit in chair as a leader. very decently he resigned. This how educated people behave without making problem to public and also to party. SO WE SHOULD LEARN OUR PRINCIPALS WHERE WE ARE
zeereez Wednesday, 08 February 2012 06:52 AM
Do it right religiously the way Maldives did it, sure the outcome will be the same.
People can do wonders, but it has to be done with focus and commitment tirelessness, thats how Maldives achieved the change
