Journalists who are bent on bringing the Rajapaksa regime back to power do not realize that they are willingly putting a noose around their own necks, said Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday at UNP Headquarters in Sirikotha.

Speaking further he said that a number of journalists who are propagating the Rajapaksa mantra would go missing if and when that regime is brought to power.

He made these remarks at a function to greet Minister Navin Dissanayake as the new National Organizer of the UNP.

Mr. Wickremesinghe elaborated further saying “One thing is certain that those journalists who appear on behalf of the regime would disappear in the event they come to power. That is the system they employ to control the media.

Therefore, I need not remind you once again that you are only putting a noose around your own necks by supporting them,” he said.

He also ventured to speculate that what he said would not be reported in any of the local dailies while the electronic media would also not give it prominence. "It is not an issue. Our members should keep what I said in mind," the PM said.

They are bent on establishing a regime once again. Let's call it “Rajapaksa Regime 2”. Do you want democracy to prevail or do you wish to welcome "Rajapaksa Regime 2"?. You have to decide which you prefer. (Anjula Mahika Weerarathne)

    PM don't blame Journalists. It is your inefficiency in probing corrupt deals of Rajapakses that will bring them back to power. Learn at least from Mahathir in this late hour how to capitalize situations

    Do not blame others. You pulled back MR probes to hit My3 and even allowed Weerawansa to get off Passport fraud.

    But Mr. RW, if you stay another 5 years TNA will have north Tamil Eelam.

    What about the mafia gangs, killings and media restrictions now?

    Sam Friday, 25 May 2018 09:18 AM

    Why don't you protect people by proving one of the thousands of accusations against the rajapaksha's and put them away?

    Ranil is running scared!! The same journalists who published all the false stories about MR and his regime believing MS/MR have now realised their mistakes and turned their guns against this crooked yahapalanaya regime.

    Recall your memory back. We had a time when people were burnt to ashes all over the country, including Batalanda.
