    Don’t reply to politions. keep your respect

    Migrant Wednesday, 02 January 2019 03:07 PM

    No, it is good that people are outspoken against these fools in the government

    Sarath Wednesday, 02 January 2019 04:01 PM

    Bandula is a fool alright, but he's not in government!

    Lokka Wednesday, 02 January 2019 03:06 PM

    We must be thankful to the particular International school which produced such great results. MP Bandula Gunewardena's comment is an insult to the student who achieved such results. Sri Lanka will never progress with politicians with such low mentality.

    kevinady Wednesday, 02 January 2019 03:07 PM

    Thank you Mahela. :)

    Shaq Wednesday, 02 January 2019 03:11 PM

    I agree with Mahela and Izzeth. History tells who these politicians are and what they have done good for their country.

    Bandula banda be carefull Wednesday, 02 January 2019 03:17 PM

    Mahala you r a achiver. Don't waste your energy on jokers like Bandula. He wanted a expert but a tuition master with the empty head.

    Damian Wednesday, 02 January 2019 03:17 PM

    Mahela is right we must stand up at politicians, trying to mislead the masses to gain political mileage. Well done done to the “ little girl “ congratulations.

    Sunil Wednesday, 02 January 2019 03:33 PM

    What Mahela has stated is absolutely correct.

    Dr. Neil Wednesday, 02 January 2019 03:59 PM

    He is a foolish fellow. He got a number of punches from HE Mahinda and also from his political rivals and the general public. Once for saying Rs5000/= would be sufficient for five member family to live a month. Again suggesting to cut and sell two ebony plants in a school premises to get money to construct the roof of the school! That day HE Mahinda gave him a tough warning.

    Anil Wednesday, 02 January 2019 04:00 PM

    These politicians want to agitate general public for whatever the reason. So pathetic !

    SJ Wednesday, 02 January 2019 04:00 PM

    BG comment is acceptable if he did tution for free?

    dulan Wednesday, 02 January 2019 04:10 PM

    Great of Mahela to show concern on such an important subject like education

    varunadhar Wednesday, 02 January 2019 04:26 PM

    Yes, Bandula is a simpleton who once said that a family can live for just Rs. 2,500/- a month. So what wise statements to expect from him?

    Dinna Wednesday, 02 January 2019 04:28 PM

    What if a home schooled child achieves best results???? These Politicians utter such nonsense just to get popular with the masses. They are so ethically bankrupt and have no moral standard. Sad plight of Sri Lankan politics!!!

    Dee Wednesday, 02 January 2019 07:03 PM

    He probably won't understand what you mean. No point. As long as free education is there we will have more JOkers like him in parliament! Very few respected MP's nowadays. All JOkers.

    Manel Thursday, 03 January 2019 05:46 AM

    Sanath lost a fair degree of his popularity by getting involved in dirty politics of SL.

    Shaf Thursday, 03 January 2019 06:06 AM

    Uneducated thugs ruling such a beautiful country, very sad. It is great pleasure issuing the statement on educations great personality like Mahela.

    Anthony Thursday, 03 January 2019 10:10 AM

    Well said Mahela. We stand by you,

    VJ Thursday, 03 January 2019 10:29 AM

    Wise men speak because they have something to say, fools because they want to say something. Ignore the tuition master.

    Dhammika Thursday, 03 January 2019 10:33 AM

    BANDU trying to play PANDU .

    Shelly Thursday, 03 January 2019 05:51 PM

    Well said Mehela, that’s it voice your opinion, it’s not Politics
