Work at a phone factory

21 November 2010 02:30 pm - 62     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe today asked the youths in Badulla whether they are willing to work at a mobile phone manufacturing plant under a government led by his party in the future.

Wickremesinghe added that the Nokia phone manufacturer had opened one of its major manufacturing plants in Tamil Nadu, but Sri Lanka had failed to attract such investments. (PA)

    Prof. Ravi Kulatunga Sunday, 21 November 2010 02:55 PM

    They can work at that factory after they have retired, since you won't be forming any government in the forseeable future.

    Faqi Sunday, 21 November 2010 03:01 PM

    Still does he has dream about government ? (lol)

    Anushka Sunday, 21 November 2010 03:05 PM

    He has put his foot in his mouth again. Why is it that every time Ranil makes a public speech, he always says something that can be used by the government to ridicule him?

    lawyer Sunday, 21 November 2010 03:10 PM

    this the latest "pandit talk" of RW. how about a last one for the road. ( before the end of 12th December)

    KD Sunday, 21 November 2010 03:15 PM

    would he be willing?

    m rifai nazim Sunday, 21 November 2010 03:20 PM

    Before forming a Government under your own, try and survive at the UNP convention. All the Sri Lankans are not fools to believe on illusions.

    charlie Sunday, 21 November 2010 03:21 PM

    During his time, he could not provide any jobs to youth.

    Sanjaya Sunday, 21 November 2010 03:26 PM

    This is serious disastor for a great party. He may be an interlligent persons but not suitable for politics. Please resign for the sake of god.

    Aliya Sunday, 21 November 2010 03:41 PM

    I think RW should learn a few tricks from MR on how to address the rural folks...

    tuan Sunday, 21 November 2010 03:46 PM

    RW nowadays does not speak sense at all. Probably impacted with chances of his coming power is very remote!

    menaka Sunday, 21 November 2010 04:54 PM

    no thanks Mr. Ranil. I'd rather be part of the knowledge economy rather than fall in to your trap of cheap labour :P

    Nilam Sunday, 21 November 2010 04:55 PM

    Ranil is trying to forget port @ Polonnaruwa stupity ... ha haaa

    sam Sunday, 21 November 2010 04:59 PM

    Sir, please shut your cannot win as long as you talk

    Rajitha Sunday, 21 November 2010 05:16 PM

    set the factory either in pamankada or madawachchiya. then it'll be easier to ship the finished products via Polonnaruwa harbor.

    herath Sunday, 21 November 2010 05:24 PM

    You can do it even now if you can. H.. E. President will extend you his full hand if you really want to do it. go for it and earn a name gentleman.

    Afker Hussain Sunday, 21 November 2010 08:24 PM

    Before you decide to establish a Phone factory please learn to run your own factory with the talent at your disposal( Sajith Premadasa) and stepping down to make way for fresh talent.
