    I will bet my last dollar, MaRa is a born coward unlike what many think in this country.

    Maddu Tuesday, 22 May 2018 05:38 PM

    Enough of your big talks... do someting.. .. Stop pointing your finger at others and prove yourself by doing something in the little time left for you.

    How about a debate between you and Dr PB Jayasundara? We all know that it is PB Jayasundara who handled the economy in the last government while a tailor is handling it now.

    kukula Wednesday, 23 May 2018 08:58 AM

    You mean the man who was kicked out of public office.

    BuffaloaCitizen Wednesday, 23 May 2018 09:26 AM

    It doesn't matter whether the man is a Tailor or a Ponnaya, the main thing is needs to do his job without robbing public money like all the earlier cowardly crooks did.

    Kalu Thursday, 24 May 2018 07:23 AM

    You mean a mice inviting a giant who defeated SF,Velu,UNP repeteadly,and who is assured to come to public office with the will of the majority...

    Leo Tuesday, 22 May 2018 05:44 PM

    Would be the most boring debate ever. Both are not qualified to talk about the economy.

    Eesh Tuesday, 22 May 2018 05:46 PM

    A under garment designer and a lawyer debating about public debt?

    vithura Tuesday, 22 May 2018 09:23 PM

    Sorry, who is 'the lawyer' here?

    Gayan Tuesday, 22 May 2018 05:47 PM

    Finance minister should debate with Shadow FM Bandula. PM or Pres can challenge MR. Hope Mangala can challenge Bandula so people can see a fair debate on the economy.

    Edwin Tuesday, 22 May 2018 05:48 PM

    Wily old fox knows very well that no lions would not take challenges from foxes which not up to him.

    Dee Tuesday, 22 May 2018 05:54 PM

    Don't shame him. He would not have a clue. His adviser is also no more.

    DHA Tuesday, 22 May 2018 06:03 PM

    Aiyo stop wasting time and try to devise a plan to develop this country.....

    concern Tuesday, 22 May 2018 06:13 PM

    Debating won't help to bring down the cost of living !.

    Unchikun Tuesday, 22 May 2018 06:55 PM

    Good! MR will bring “ Dana Rina “ and “ Modawansa” and you will have a field day.

    Lal Tuesday, 22 May 2018 10:10 PM

    lol looks like the underwear designer has one fan

    sinha Tuesday, 22 May 2018 07:06 PM

    Mangala Samaraweera is one of the useless MP/minister in the country. What is wants is the power, has never done anything to the country but act like very nice person. This another nothing but another RAJITHA

    Ceylon Tuesday, 22 May 2018 07:16 PM

    Who cares the debates?.nobody cares.only you care.just bring back the 18 billion stolen money you said.where is that money?.they allready ahared with you?.shut up and do the right thing.

    ANTON Tuesday, 22 May 2018 07:30 PM

    NOW MR ALSO WILL SAY , LIKE HIS BROTHER, " YOU INVITE ME FOR DEBATES COS YOU KNOW I CAN"

    Nelum Fernando Tuesday, 22 May 2018 09:01 PM

    Country's finances should be debated with a financial brain and not with a dress designer who is also capable of mud slinging.

    Gemba Tuesday, 22 May 2018 09:29 PM

    The good,bad and the ugly.

    Ranjit Tuesday, 22 May 2018 09:29 PM

    He you double cross scoundrel who the hell are you to invite our president for a debate? The whole country knows that you are a damn liar and a traitor do just kind your own business and go to hell.

    LP Tuesday, 22 May 2018 10:31 PM

    බැරිනම් පලයන් බන් ගොන් පාට් නැතුව.

    Gummay Baiya Tuesday, 22 May 2018 11:09 PM

    As if people of this country need more empty talks and worthless debates. These stupid idiots should all be lined up and hanged.

    Kamala Wimalasinghe Tuesday, 22 May 2018 11:10 PM

    You have no credibility Samaraweera. Did you find MR's so called 18 billion USD with the help of your Western buddies? If you have an iota of shame, you should not open your smelly mouth to discredit Rajapaksas. You may open it for other purposes you are well known for. That too only in the bed room with your sugar buddies.

    dev Wednesday, 23 May 2018 09:23 AM

    Did you guys ever seen MR seated on a press/Media briefing? he never ever done since he was a president, even for a political tv program ape hamaduruwane
