    You do realise the murali mentioned up there is Karuna Amman and not the murali the bowler, right?

    Power hungry man and he was want only power! Please realise at least now that how much power hungry is MR

    moda Friday, 12 June 2015 09:38 PM

    Murali said that he killed 600 unarmed police men.MR says 60,000 unarmed civilian.Other cannibals ????

    The God Father Saturday, 13 June 2015 08:28 AM

    Fantastic Anthony, but do you think the fish brain can get it in to his thick head? The history will show MR is the most dumbest president of all.

    We have a prime minister in parliament who has lostmore time than most people only by appointment.If Predident Obama thanked Mr.moodi for bringingDemocracy to Nepal and Sri Lanka it shows whois behind. Americas biggest banker is Chinaand when we have close relations with ChinaIt bothers USA and India yet Mr.moodi goes toChina and signed contracts worth 24 Billion $$.Under MR we were growing at 7.8% which was highest in South Asia. debt to GDP of 80% better thanAll G7 nation and budget deficit of 4.4% which wasAt a 45 year low( All these stats reported byBloomberg and Economist) so I think no otherPredident has even come close to accomplishingMR. Sri Lanka today is undoubtedly dividedamong on the lines of race and religion and thewest definitely exploited it. The west always wants to divide SL but are against dividing UK or Canada.SL belongs to all people as one nation and it would benice if we as s nation learn to share our country among all.

    Prime Minister Ranil wickramasinghe compared MR to Russian Prime Minister since Putin was president before he became prime minister. Likewise, MR is trying to become prime minister.

    Rascal Kalpesh Saturday, 13 June 2015 02:24 AM

    There is no LTTE. MR only uses LTTE name to garnish the rural people support. MR and his merry men still want to ruin the country's economy. How much we borrowed during MR reigme.

    sanjay Saturday, 13 June 2015 02:43 AM

    MR Is a legend and he will remain the hero of modern day sri Lankan history. He will be back.its wise for all those Colombo elite to digest the fact without commenting in a sarcastic manner in this website as we all know daily mirror is read mainly by Colombo elite and not the urban mass.

    Sikuru Sunday, 14 June 2015 05:52 PM

    @ Cheers, Oh pls! Everyone that goes against MR is a LTTE cadre? The war was won by SF and soldiers not by MR in his AC room

    Yes its true Mr.Rajapaksa should rescue Sri Lanka by returning all the assets that he and his family took from this country

    Gobba Saturday, 13 June 2015 12:05 PM

    Whats stopping him from climbing on to Stages being set up for his return ? He knows the consequences and the dangers of the future with his Scrounging the country along with his family members. This is the truth why he is not climbing stages set up FOR HIS BEHALF.

    Sarath Friday, 12 June 2015 07:39 PM

    Every minute this Government in power means Sri Lankan economy is sliding down in Global arena. New Airport, Harbour and uncompleted Highways will be rusted off in few months time so it will be end of these projects. It is the right time for Rajapksa to rescue the country again from this massive corruption.

    Cheers Saturday, 13 June 2015 04:24 AM

    Destroyed the country you must be LTTE cadre or a supporter living on tax payers benefits

    Cheers Saturday, 13 June 2015 04:26 AM

    No matter what the way country is sliding and giving to global tamil forums people will soon endorse you back sending the current regime home

    Anthony Friday, 12 June 2015 07:45 PM

    Mr. Rajapaksa. why are you stooping your self down, you ruled the country as a Minister, Prime minister and President, you did everything possible, so now lie low with dignity and do not show the Nation and the world that you are yet greedy and power hungry, You wife must be so depressed in what is happening, you are caught in a trap where the people who are supporting you has no future and no citizen will respect them. Think about this and have a peaceful retirement life.

    Jaya Sikuruyi Saturday, 13 June 2015 04:36 AM

    Typical Colombians, your dismissive nature is an indication of your cowardice very much like those elite in Bangkok who tries to keep the populist Thaksin out. Remember ordinary people from the south like us will bring Mahinda back to power soon. Yes, ordinary people....

    H.D.Gunaratne Saturday, 13 June 2015 01:13 PM

    Whether we like it or not. MR is still a party to be reckoned .MS must also understand the reality and allow him to lead the party. Otherwise it will be the end of the SLPA.

    If things are so good in sri lanka now,why are these people so worried about Mahinda contesting in the next election?maybe because he could win!

    Voter Friday, 12 June 2015 07:50 PM

    He is good leader, if he understood bad part of authoritative ruler and allow independency of judiciary and all other institutes

    yahapaluwa Saturday, 13 June 2015 05:33 AM

    Lending banks have professional accountants, financial executives who look into any project before the approve loans. If there is no foreseen economic development then they won’t approve loans as there will be a risk in getting the loan repayment. These people know that there going to be future developments in south region due to the airport and harbour and there going to be increase in tourism due to direct flights to internationally popular south regions.

    Perumal Friday, 12 June 2015 07:51 PM

    We favour Murali because he was a (good) bowler;he is said to have bowled off 600 policemen in an unequal match.

    Udana Friday, 12 June 2015 07:55 PM

    Sunil Saturday, 13 June 2015 05:46 AM

    Dear MR. M3 ,Ranil,CBK will not allow you to become the next PM definitely they will run the country with clear majority .

    yahapaluwa Saturday, 13 June 2015 05:46 AM

    Yes nothing on earth satisfies him, he end the world strongest terrorism, he make Colombo the fastest developing city, he turns hole Sri Lanka into a huge development site, shops and supermarkets open in ever km, make tourism boom, created huge job opportunities, still not satisfied want to come back to do more…crazy isn’t it.

    Sikuru Friday, 12 June 2015 08:04 PM

    Ahem.... The new airport has been rusting since it was built only birds land on it

    Don Saturday, 13 June 2015 05:56 AM

    The all comments are basically from UNP supporters. Its utter jealousy . MR is a achiever ,

    MR is only interested in himself, his family, his henchmen and power. The Country is way down on the list - perhaps only to be plundered !

    Boonda Friday, 12 June 2015 08:22 PM

    MY3 is becoming smart and taking lessons from MR way of ruling. Already 4 on his site. Soon GLP the professor would jump with an an Presidential Adviser on foreign policy. MR will be left out with Namal at last.

    According to the Teaching of Buddha all these troubles and problems from a little quarrels to great wars rises out of this selfish desire or greed. But, the thing is that we must understand the unsatisfied greed will always be ended with suffering (dukkha). The sufferings occur not just here in this life, but also hereafter.

    shamantha Welgama Sunday, 14 June 2015 09:18 AM

    We gave a mandate to MR for 10Years,now its over. Gentlemen please look for the future, world is changing at a faster phase, we need new leaders who can run the country with peace, prosperity and harmony.

    Manel Saturday, 13 June 2015 07:24 AM

    It is now very clear that UNP, JHU, JVP, Sarath F and minority parties do not want MR as prime ministerial candidate. Only a PART of the SLFP and fellows like VW, Vasi, TW, which is a minority support him.
