The ‘Lakmawa Diyaniyo’, an ally of National Freedom Front (NFF), today vowed to eliminate Fonterra and its products from Sri Lanka similar to its defeat of terrorism.

“We defeated the LTTE-terra from the country. We will defeat Fonterra too,” NFF spokesman Mohamed Muzammil said.

The ‘Lakmawa Diyaniyo’ with around 200 people staged a protest near Fonterra Brands Lanka PVT Limited in Biyagama demanding the withdrawal of Fonterra products from the country.

“Fonterra is putting at risk our lives and those of our children. We will not tolerate its products,” the protesters said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    You did not defeat terrorism. It was the was SL Armed Forces that did a good job. People like you are cowards who would hide behind your wife's saree potta.
    Buffoon, you should be exiled from Sri Lanka because you stink and contaminate all ways of good life.

    Sammy Saturday, 24 August 2013 02:25 PM

    How silly to compare defeat of terrorism to closure of Fonterra in Sri Lanka. As if they forced themselves upon Sri Lanka!

    PK Thursday, 22 August 2013 11:56 AM

    If this is from an ally of another party.. It will be a peoples demonstration... Sad.

    sobers Thursday, 22 August 2013 11:58 AM

    Being a Minister he should follow the latest findings and get himself updated. These fellows must thank the gods for being in such positions, when so many qualified and deserving are nowhere.

    PK Thursday, 22 August 2013 11:59 AM

    They will be.. results will come in years. Why we wait till we get complications. Prevention is better then cure.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Thursday, 22 August 2013 04:27 PM

    Who cares for Wimal. He is an actor who performs "Boru Sobana".

    Dee Thursday, 22 August 2013 12:20 PM

    Richard Thursday, 22 August 2013 12:25 PM

    Suq Madique Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:53 AM

    Politicians like weerawansa are a bigger threat to this country but our fools don't realize this.

    ANTON Thursday, 22 August 2013 01:21 PM

    SHHHH....NOW HE IS INTERESTED ABOUT 1+

    adahan Sunday, 25 August 2013 02:51 AM

    wimal has to do this type of show for the undeserving prominent ministry, which he has got as a gift. It has a dual purpose of showing faithfulness and pleasing his master,

    Ranjith Silvar Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:22 AM

    I think this is timely action. We need the freedom from Foreign Suppliers. Just pay attention to alternates and save the future.

    Sim Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:26 AM

    Why can't we refrain from buying that product. If no sales, they will go off.
