Senior Cabinet Minister Rajitha Senaratne and UNP MP Dayasiri Jayasekera speak to the Daily Mirror on the incidents concerning Baharatha Lakshman Premachandra.
Gota didn’t know about Duminda’s underworld links: rajitha
Q: But was the President unaware of the tension that prevailed in the area before the election?
He didn’t know, as a president of a country he is busy with all the problems. He is actually not bothered about the local incidents, now he is more involved with the international situation—because there are a lot of allegations brought against the government, with the activities of the western countries, the UN and so many other problems.
Q: Dr. Rajitha Senaratne stated that the Secretary of the Ministry of Defence was unaware of the extent of MP Duminda Silva’s activities. Do you think that this is true?
No, that is wrong. Because before this incident took place I stated that it was very violent in the Kolonnawa electorate, since I was aware of all the incidents. Individuals fired at the cutouts of the President. It is obvious that a thug would have done something like this, because he doesn’t care—all they want to do is cause damage. This is why I said there would be violence, but they didn’t take it very seriously.
The most of the questions could not be answered because of the involvement of the government and must be kept the post of a cabinet and must have be led a luxury and wealthy life. The mill of the God, grinds slow but sure!

Will you compromise your job and family and bread and butter for truth in these times of excess of greed in the world. Give me a break.
From Wall Street to Bay street to Colombo greed exceed to human dignity. From White House to UN to Colombo rules are applied for own benefit not the for the ordinary Silva on the street.
Lets be the movie goers.. Let at least enjoy the movie...
