    Yes, still some more countries to visit.

    This time what did they eat ? Definitely not Hoppers. May be Paratha, Thosai, or Pol Roti with Plain Tea.

    Sodha Sunday, 07 October 2018 08:32 AM

    Both are power hungry goons.

    YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW Sunday, 07 October 2018 05:12 PM

    What ever "hunger" they may be having - they may PROPOSE *between themselves) but (finally) PROVIDENCE (i.e. karma or God) DISPOSES.

    OMG has SL politics descended to this level that these are getting together again after all the insults they hurled at each other. Can anyone with minimum memory trust them again.

    Mandy Sunday, 07 October 2018 07:26 PM

    Bury the hatchet and lets loot the country together. We will forgive each other they said.

    Patric Sunday, 07 October 2018 09:31 PM

    How di you rate RW then? After more than 29 defeats he still dreams of becoming No.1. Why don’t you guys include him into group. Fair dinkum eh?

    Azmath Sunday, 07 October 2018 08:44 AM

    Be wise my fellow citizens... Don't let them fool us again....

    Greed for power is strongest bond.

    well said,,,power hungry people meet powerhungry people,,

    S.P.Ramkumar Sunday, 07 October 2018 08:52 AM

    They might have discussed about their own family benifits, MR might have asked avoid arrest and not to making case against his family member, MS might have asked his family security if MR comes to power. Not sure about country or SLFP or Dollar incresed. Might, might ,

    Unchikun Sunday, 07 October 2018 09:16 AM

    Take a few seconds and contemplate as to who is responsible for this. Why do the UNP have to go fishing for a Presidential Candidate ? It is because the UNP leader can not win an election. So without further delay, the UNP needs a new charismatic leader. This is the root cause for the debacle.

    Dhammika Sunday, 07 October 2018 11:04 AM

    Every body understands it , except RW .

    looks Sunday, 07 October 2018 01:15 PM

    Totally agree. Sajith or Naveen is leaders in waiting

    Lion Sunday, 07 October 2018 05:34 PM

    Unchikun and Dammika both of you are correct

    Sira Sunday, 07 October 2018 08:05 PM

    The problem is the people available in the UNP to replace Ranil are the sons of former rotten leaders. We do not want dynasties to rule us like in India.

    Lord Wolfstein Sunday, 07 October 2018 09:50 AM

    It hurts the office and reputation of the president when he meets with criminals.

    looks Sunday, 07 October 2018 01:16 PM

    Has he still hold any sort of reputation? He lost those qualities ever since long time ago

    Lord Pakyam Sunday, 07 October 2018 03:24 PM

    If criminality exists, why not arrest? Could it be just a Buzz word of the yahapaluwas to cover their instability and inefficiency for their imminent defeat of whatever the election they prefer to hold.

    Banda Sunday, 07 October 2018 08:08 PM

    Lord moron, you a tiger loving entity have no qualification to call others criminals.

    Sweet in the heart but sour in the mouth.

    WARNING Sunday, 07 October 2018 12:24 PM

    MS be careful

    Saman Sunday, 07 October 2018 02:27 PM

    Be careful? He is negotiating a power sharing deal with his ex-boss for the next election.

    Mandayan Sunday, 07 October 2018 08:22 PM

    Power sharing? Do you know that if the President dies, PM would becomes President as per the constitution which other section of it says, MR can’t contest twice. Don’t be thick and think like Rajapaksa.

    Dayawathie Sunday, 07 October 2018 12:55 PM

    Kapanna bari atha imbinawa.

    Arthur Sunday, 07 October 2018 01:00 PM

    To put the country 6 feet under.

    Nuwan Sunday, 07 October 2018 01:04 PM

    MS is a lost cause.

    Srilankan Sunday, 07 October 2018 01:55 PM

    I wish Bandu or Tenison Coorey becomes the president of Sri Lanka. the rate at this country going they will be most appropriate for that position than the existing lot. No offence Tenison and Bandu Aiyya!!!!!

    Sincere Sunday, 07 October 2018 02:12 PM

    Fulfilling the election pledges of 2015 January 8th!!

    lakshitha Sunday, 07 October 2018 02:45 PM

    Media people must be loving this,,they will give maximum publicity to show that a caretaker Govt with their favourite MR is possible ,,,but any fool knows the present UNP whether we like it or not has the support of 122 MPs and therefore the Govt cannot be toppled,,no point wasting time and money ,,over something that cannot happen,,its just power hungryness of MS and MR reflected.,, where is MS promise in 2015 when he took oaths not to seek reelection again,,nothing good will happen to whoever goes back on his word.

    Mandayan Sunday, 07 October 2018 02:51 PM

    Same old toddy for the last few years. SBD invited all SLFPers for a family function.

    Dhammika Sunday, 07 October 2018 07:48 PM

    SBD - You mean SEENI BOLA D........

    SENA Sunday, 07 October 2018 03:34 PM

    No need to hide in the farm when the election come in

    Hubert Sunday, 07 October 2018 04:35 PM

    Palhora saha Kuhakaya together will be good

    Sanju Sunday, 07 October 2018 04:49 PM

    Hahaha. Poor Sirisena. He will be chewed and spat out. The Rajapakses are never going to forgive or forget what disaster he brought on them.

    lakshitha Sunday, 07 October 2018 04:51 PM

    Tell MS to come against Ranil at a Presidential election,,,he will get to know who Ranil and the UNP is,,, even if Ranil contested last election against MR he would have won,,,as people were fed up with MR..

    Premalal Sunday, 07 October 2018 04:56 PM

    The "Swamp" meets to protect themselves. Only solution for the country is to drain the swamp and get a new set of politicians. What do we have to lose?

    Thariq Sunday, 07 October 2018 05:35 PM

    All are Crooks, they loot our country as a team and we the innocent public becomes the victims..We need a team to come up against this corrupted political system in Sri lanka if not we will be always marching backward.

    vithura Sunday, 07 October 2018 06:12 PM

    Now we know why the pace of investigations on all corruptions and abuse of power has got nowhere. Last time round, his poker faced look won him the presidency with much help from the UNP, next time people will be wiser, let us hope!

    Jaya Sunday, 07 October 2018 06:26 PM

    OMG.. You UNPiers are very nervous and excited now !

    Sambo Sunday, 07 October 2018 07:24 PM

    All these comments will be only good if this meeting could be proved. If not its just rumors. Remember Sri Lankans are gossip mongers.

    Haramanis Sunday, 07 October 2018 08:00 PM

    People!. Lets face it, the UNP has messed everything up in style. Lets get rid of the bums and steer a new course.

    Ben Sunday, 07 October 2018 08:15 PM

    Now we need Sajith on the saddle,Ranil give up, give up Give up.Before we push you out by a massive HarthalGive Sajith the Premier Post every thibg will be solved

    Dperera Sunday, 07 October 2018 08:25 PM

    Its a possibility Priminister Mahinda Rajapaksha by end of the year??

    Dee Sunday, 07 October 2018 09:03 PM

    Did MR mention anything about 'six feet under' ? . HE. Sir. Don't forget the past!

    deceiver Monday, 08 October 2018 06:47 AM

    AND - last night on TV the fellow (MR) says there was no such meeting

    Ravi Monday, 08 October 2018 08:32 AM

    From his name it self you can read his character. This man has no credibility or integrity.

    Sorry, Mr.President, apparently you are on the verge of signing your own death warrant.

    Derwin Monday, 08 October 2018 08:58 AM

    President is having talks to give quick judgement from the so called courts recently imposed

    Ronnie Bugger Monday, 08 October 2018 09:00 AM

    Sorry, Mr. President, but you apparently is on the verge of signing your own death warrant.
