Daham Sirisena, the son of President Maithripala Sirisena, referring to his inclusion in the Sri Lanka delegation to UN, on Monday questioned, how could his attendance have a negative effect on the country?

Posting a facebook note, he stated, “How could my attendance be a negative effect to the country? How could my attendance be the downfall of the country? I urge you all not to compare me and my family with the past regimes as we are far different from them.”

    Majority of the nation voted for a change, but little did they know was that they were fooled using the their own hatred against them for the benefit of the Greens. I feel sorry about the people, especially the ones who are fighting and arguing over the parties like they were paid.

    Absolutely

    You look like a clueless clown when you sit next to veterans.

    TISSA Tuesday, 29 September 2015 10:31 AM

    MY VIEW IS THAT SOME ONE TRUSTWORTHY SHOULD BE AROUND H.E.

    Wele Vidane Tuesday, 29 September 2015 05:17 AM

    Yes it seems like far far different from previous family.

    BudinOz Tuesday, 29 September 2015 05:29 AM

    Silence is golden, especially when we are in deep trouble.

    Pds Tuesday, 29 September 2015 05:51 AM

    Most sri lankans voted for a change in our political culture. Your visit to the UN should be with a purpose. Do not ask us how could your attendance have a negative impact. Please let us know why you visited ?. We as the public feel betrayed as your family seem to take the same old path !

    thusara Wednesday, 30 September 2015 06:17 AM

    Preciously and the first family should be extremely careful not to replicate the past. Take a leaf from CBK when in office her kids were not seen or heard leave alone attending UNGA

    Concerned Citizen Tuesday, 29 September 2015 12:19 PM

    So we have to pay for all this ?

    Rose Tuesday, 29 September 2015 06:07 AM

    Do you hold any office within the government? If so what qualifies you to get that post? Answer these questions and the public will decide. ...

    jonnie Tuesday, 29 September 2015 06:16 AM

    Hi Daham,We were not born yesterday..do not give this crap! practice what you preach,,i know you are a saint i know what you are doing in London.more details later...j

    Compared to the previous regime this is a minor thing even to discuss; but this could be how things start to grow out of proportion.

    Premalal Tuesday, 29 September 2015 06:32 AM

    This is exactly what your father promised that he would not do when he made the first appeal to the country. You seem to have a dubious definition for nepotism. Whatever you say, the only reason you got on that delegation was because your father was the President and he called all the shots. By the way how many other delegates brought their kith and kin. You see UN is serious business which affect the country and you have no business there. It is such a pity that this country cannot find one honest person to be the President.

    L.B.Senaratne Tuesday, 29 September 2015 07:13 AM

    My dear Putha,Your had a good experience, sitting with your father at UN. It is an experience.Don;t get excited and reply to any criticism. People should not b frogs in the well. I had the opportunity to sit in Geneva and in Switzerland, when I was young Do not jump the gun and get excited for criticism Be like your father, unruffled. Peope around you would say reply - Do not do this for trifle matters - Good luck

    kumar Thursday, 01 October 2015 12:27 AM

    I admired the Presidents simple straight forward qualities, but I am now dismayed. Seat in an official delegation should have been earned.The Presidents wife is the first Lady it is not transferable.

    Darm Tuesday, 29 September 2015 07:34 AM

    Preaching and practicing are different things.

    dilip Tuesday, 29 September 2015 02:10 PM

    previous regime also begins with small small things...?

    Kumar Tuesday, 29 September 2015 02:37 PM

    This is the difference between Ranil and Mithripala. First he brought all defeated candidates through back door now his son in UN.

    Wilmot Tuesday, 29 September 2015 02:38 PM

    Oh boy! seriously you need to grow up.
