UPFA MP Udaya Gammanpila said today the country was in a mess because too many groups including the US and India, apart from the President and the Prime Minister, are attempting to govern the country.

Responding to a question by a journalist outside the Colombo National Hospital he said at least five groups are holding the reins of the country.

“President Maithripala Sirisena thinks it’s he who runs the country and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe thinks it’s him. Former president Chandrika Kumaratunga thinks it's her. Similarly, India thinks they are the true leaders of Sri Lanka as it helped the government to come into power while the US also thinks they are the leaders here,” Mr. Gammanpila said.

He said this after visiting the student who was injured in the Jaffna University clash on Saturday. Commenting on the clash he said the government’s approach to establish reconciliation had proved futile and therefore the leaders should reconsider their approach and techniques.

    Gama is a good example for a man without wisdom.

    Freedom to voice one's views and suggestions is not by any means trying to "Govern the Country". But a true sign of "Democracy". However, it may be something new to you coming from the era of "Dictatorship".

    First you explain how you amazed so much of wealth? Your request of 100 rs stunt was to hoodwink the innocent public. President is driving the country well, you don't create any divisions among communities.

    It is not the numbers but the capability and attitude.What is he capable of and his attitude to develop the country other than to have a free ride and rob the country

    What a good analysis.Judging by the number of foreign dignitaries (so called) visiting Sri Lanka by the day and making pronouncements as to how things should be done here, looks more like a colony of the Imperial era !
