Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday vowed not to allow Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and TNA MP M.A. Sumanthiran to implement decisions taken by them surreptitiously that would harm the interests of the country.
He said this at the opening of the new 'Wahalkada’ at the Nakulugamuwa, Meddadeniya Sri Shailarama Purana Temple in Beliatta yesterday .
Chairman of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Prof. G.L. Peiris, MPs T.B.Ekanayaka, Chairman of the Southern Provincial Council Somawansa Kodagoda, Southern Provincial Councillors D.V.Upul and M.K.Kasun participated in the ceremony.
The Opposition Leader, speaking to journalists who were present at event, said,
“People who have not seen a Constitution say the country is about to be divided. They say that it is neither a Constitution or a draft. Some others say that it is a draft. The truth is only known only by Ranil and Sumanthiran as it is they who are attempting to implement the decisions taken by them on the sly. We will not allow this to happen,” MP Rajapaksa said.( Aneesha Manage)

Country does not require a new constitution, if changes are required have an amendment. You should not allow Ranil to run away with hidden agenda.

Well Mr. MR what did you do while you were the president? You had a mighty opportunity and power to do this. What stopped you from nailing it? There is no point to "shout" on the issue, because you failed to do what you could have done when you had the POWER!!

Oh like the 18th Amendment that you bought in thru the back door giving u unlimited power and access to be President for life?
Dee Monday, 21 January 2019 09:39 AM
Coming from an expert in backdoor and on the sly matters!
Amara Monday, 21 January 2019 09:49 AM
Shame on you. Playing the race and LTTE card again, are we? Can't say I am surprised. At the same time, RW and his stranglehold on the UNP also to blame. UNP must select a leader that appeals to all ethnic and religious groups. If they do that, there is no room for SLPP ad SLFP.

Any draft Constitution must be tabled before Parliament debated and passed with 2/3rd majority. To-date no one has seen this alleged draft. MR have you seen the draft. If you haven't seen how can people see it or talk about it. These are rumors that are circulating and MR issue statements on them. How silly
Sillo Monday, 21 January 2019 10:22 AM

Rahul Monday, 21 January 2019 01:29 PM
He plays politics with Tamils and Muslim and forget how the country has been going backwards since independence. He is not genuine in all the things he does and he works for his family to fill the pockets and stay in power forever
Gsmaya Monday, 21 January 2019 01:33 PM
Oh Mr Rajapassa Please SHUT UP!
Gamarala Monday, 21 January 2019 01:43 PM
MR Modaya trying to grab power again to screw normal hardworking Sri Lankans for his and his mods family's benefit. I suppose the decisions taken by his family members without consulting parliament when he was in office was ok ?

We were a one nation up until 1956, the divisions brought by the extremist parties that BANDA included in his PATCHA BALAWEGAYA coalition, why don't you all (UNP, JVP SLPP, SLFP etc get together and find a permanent solution for countries sake. For you it is like the Beggars Wound to mislead the public ignorant public,
Buddhist Tuesday, 22 January 2019 07:20 AM
Now the Leader of the Opposition, that too the illegal LOO has nothing else to do in the Parliament that attacking Sumanthiran. What a low level attack is this!
Selvyn Tuesday, 22 January 2019 03:07 PM
When is he going to be a good Buddhist. What a shame! At his age most people live blessed with wisdom.But unfortunately his greed for power will only lead him to Hell. Atleast he must avoid speeches disturbing the peaceful coexistence of races
