‘Cabraal missile’ has struck again- Ranil

UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said today the ‘Cabraal missile’ had struck again with the increase in the prices of gas and milk powder though a parallel increase in people’s wages had not taken place.

“Milk prices went up today, gas goes up today. Who knows where this missile will end up? Things are going to get more and more difficult,” Mr. Wickremesinghe said.

He said people including estate workers, farmers, fishermen and labourers needed urgent relief and that their needs should be met by the government.

“We want to remind the regime of the jungle law and that these need to be met,” he said. 

Mr. Wickremesinghe said that apart from the need for higher wages, national unity and a political solution to the national question were essential and that the people needed an equal share in decision making on behalf of the country. (Olindhi Jayasundere)

    You sound like the regime itself. Whenever in crisis needed a national govt, otherwise busy deviding them or making mega trips.

    Imran Hussein Saturday, 05 May 2012 06:16 AM

    True but sadly we Srilankans arnt that smart or intelligent to understand a simple basic fact.

    Trualf Saturday, 05 May 2012 06:30 AM

    Yapa, you are absolutely right. Mr. Ranil Pleas,.. Please..., get out of the seat……..

    People might say all kinds of things about this man (Mr. Ranil), about his personality and about his inability to talk in public, but I think he’s the right man now. Not even Sajith its Ranil who should come in to power now. We need a person like him to take this country forward. Economic policies are strong. You will not need money to earn money. In this government the people with money earn more money. It’s a one sided story. I won’t say it wouldn’t happen with UNP but better chances of talented ppl to come up do well and earn few bucks. Even for an average earning man like me it’s so difficult. I have to make so much of changers. It’s not fair just imagine for a below average earning person. It’s impossible... We need a change!!!

    bring in solution won't be a problem, but do you think government will listen to what opposition says? Once the account is empty, MPs will start to jump from government one by one...

    pol haraka Sunday, 06 May 2012 01:35 AM

    ado ranil, all these problems was because of you, you are a hired gun of the regime... and doesn't matter what gov comes now its too late for sri lanka, we heading down, and our king still keeps borrowing money, why would he care, he doesn't have to pay t

    Fayad Saturday, 05 May 2012 07:42 AM

    Ignore Cabba's missile, we are looking forward for an UNP missile can you deliver or not ??

    Ravi Seneviratne Friday, 04 May 2012 05:39 PM

    We must have national government with all parties represented to meet the present ecomonic challanges/ national issues etc.

    Dinithi Friday, 04 May 2012 07:20 PM

    What about SF? Forgotten him?

    Aston Friday, 04 May 2012 08:02 PM

    Ranil is good to lead the whole Asia . Intelligent and smart

    Ranjith Friday, 04 May 2012 12:42 PM

    Kabaraala and the clan is more worried about how to manipulate CSE

    Yapa Friday, 04 May 2012 12:49 PM

    If you handover the leadership to Sajith we should not have any of these problems. RATA DEKATA. MAMA EKATA!

    Ranjith Friday, 04 May 2012 12:53 PM

    Idiots who voted for sobana king are responsible for these missile attacks

    shanthamadawels Friday, 04 May 2012 12:29 PM

    missiles end is present Govt.'s end....

    Robin Friday, 04 May 2012 01:08 PM

    As an opposition party leader, see what you could do to bring about a solution to this burdening issue for the sake of poor masses of our country and for the government with law of the jungle.

    Senanayake Friday, 04 May 2012 12:57 PM

    When elections are held, UNP is hit by RANIL MISSILE....!!!

    Sam Friday, 04 May 2012 12:40 PM

    Come on Mr.Ranil.
    You are the only leader who can develop our country.

    Saman Friday, 04 May 2012 01:00 PM

    You are the next president Mr.Ranil.
    I am pretty sure.

    sahdi Friday, 04 May 2012 01:16 PM

    COME ON CABBAA........

    Real Peace Friday, 04 May 2012 01:32 PM

    This nation has no option other than rallying round Ranil to come out of this economic catastrophe. Only he can bring the foreign investments to resuscitate our ailing economy.

    GAGA Friday, 04 May 2012 01:25 PM

    "Cabral Missile " will hit the Chinthana cabinet and the King very soon with no chance of survival..................jayawewa

    J P Rajan Saturday, 05 May 2012 04:31 PM

    Only very few people understand what a good leader Ranil is! the majority are idiots!!!

    deva Saturday, 05 May 2012 05:19 AM
