    SriLankan Saturday, 14 August 2010 04:35 AM

    This is good. For ppl who talk abt SF - He is a traitor and should be kept in prison for life !!!

    Shovini Saturday, 14 August 2010 04:58 AM

    She might die after MR's visit. Poor lady.

    Nalin Saturday, 14 August 2010 05:03 AM

    First MR visited ailing Ranil and thereafter his ailing mother.

    Tharaka Chanaka Saturday, 14 August 2010 05:23 AM

    Zulfi Friday, 13 August 2010 05:59 PM

    willows Friday, 13 August 2010 09:28 AM

    good PR

    Dr. wiki Friday, 13 August 2010 09:29 AM

    Blessed are those who visit invalids and imprisoned. Visit SF.

    Shevon Friday, 13 August 2010 09:29 AM

    Good gesture. Things are looking better now.

    DHA Friday, 13 August 2010 09:31 AM

    Day by day the love affair seems to be growing stronger.......!!!

    Madu Friday, 13 August 2010 09:37 AM

    MR is the most tactful politician Sri lanka ever produced. He is so smart I can draw any parellel with any other leader. Not surprising people love him.

    Tanya D Friday, 13 August 2010 09:40 AM

    Presidents know to play his shots as well as show his humane nature. Thats why he gets it right all the time. Lots to learn from him especially to aspiring leaders. No other
    President or Prime Minister in Sri Lanka knew "smart Politics" . This man is streets ahead.

    Labby Saturday, 14 August 2010 05:58 AM

    On the contrary, this could be signaling the begining of the end of the SLFP.

    Migara Perera Saturday, 14 August 2010 05:59 AM

    Mr has real human qualities or he is expecting something from Ranil and UNP?
    These guys are big actors in frount of public.

    adam Friday, 13 August 2010 09:56 AM

    Madu and Tanya, you must be living in stone age to admire these tactics. These are very cheap political gimmicks.

    lankaman Friday, 13 August 2010 09:56 AM

    Now I wouldn't be surprised if Ranil crosses over to the govt and ends up being a minister!!!

    Dinesh Friday, 13 August 2010 10:02 AM

    But the country does not get anything right and going nowhere.

    Faqi Friday, 13 August 2010 08:45 PM

    What's going-on between Ranil & MR?

    A.J. Friday, 13 August 2010 10:09 AM

    please please take Ranil to the SLFP , please MR President , we beg you

    Edwardo Baltazar Friday, 13 August 2010 10:12 AM

    MR is a good gentleman........who sets example for others....

    Citizen Saturday, 14 August 2010 07:23 AM

    Is it an invitation for tea after she returns home?

    sanjee Saturday, 14 August 2010 07:35 AM

    So, When Ranil Join SLFP?

    adam Friday, 13 August 2010 10:23 AM

    lankaman....this is Sri Lanka man...anything can happen

    N.C.Wijeratne Friday, 13 August 2010 01:14 PM

    Ofcourse getting very close to election petition hearing-Ah!

    M ASHRAFF NAZIM Saturday, 14 August 2010 07:53 AM

    MR is an actor itselt this is not something new.

    Anakonda Saturday, 14 August 2010 11:51 AM

    You have been acting so well, way to go MR.

    arshad Friday, 13 August 2010 10:31 AM

    Another Eye wash to show the world , What about SF a war Hero

    shane uk Friday, 13 August 2010 01:58 PM

    Ranil as a favour pls join slfp.

    suwimal Friday, 13 August 2010 10:35 AM

    Here, MR Elections are long since over. You're still playing election games.

    True SriLankan Friday, 13 August 2010 10:37 AM

    These are just Public Relations mechanisms.

    Look at the way he treats Sarath Fonseka. Since Ranil is by no means a threat, he visits his mother. But his right hand man at the war, who helped the country to eradicate terrorism, is today sentenced.

    Mota silva Friday, 13 August 2010 02:52 PM

    Politics is podi podi tricks...

    srilankan Friday, 13 August 2010 10:57 AM


    Geronimo Saturday, 14 August 2010 03:06 AM

    Out in the open, yes I agree. But there should be a limit to MR's underhand tactics. MR clearly snatches the title of 'Crafty Fox' from JR!!!

    Geronimo Saturday, 14 August 2010 03:08 AM

    ..And RW is being led by the nose and isn't there a limit to his naivety too????

    wasanthi Saturday, 14 August 2010 03:18 AM

    Ranil will crossover with 5 others.

    sandman Saturday, 14 August 2010 03:27 AM

    Ranil is increasingly looking like a MR and company agent out to ruin and destroy the UNP for good.
