    If the present president and his team get this foolish and uneducated fellow into their fold once again, some of us will consider them too as equal to the Rajapakses!!

    Mahinda Rajapakshe had transferred the power very smoothly. He is a great statesman. He made the country proud. World all over feels that Sri Lanka is a civilised nation

    OMG Monday, 12 January 2015 04:03 PM

    Will be interesting know what happens to Mervyn now.

    S.Vimalanathan Friday, 09 January 2015 09:22 PM

    Like to have members of Parliament with dignity and of course accountability as well

    PuvanaChandra Saturday, 10 January 2015 11:47 PM

    Transfer of power was not all that smooth to praise the out going president.Evidence to indicate that there were plans to cling on to power until the last minute.we need a clean slate,ethical and honest governance.It would be better if the old guard retire and contemplate on all their misdeeds of the past 10 years,put their hands up ,accept responsibility for the state our country is in morally and let the youngsters learn from the mistakes committed before taking up politics.
