United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) MP Kumara Welgama said he would make fresh efforts to resolve any differences between President Maithripala Sirisena and his predecessor Mahinda Rajapaksa with a meeting to be held in May after Vesak.

He said president Sirisena is expected to give a date for a meeting soon.

Mr. Welgama said the earlier meeting between the two fell through because the former president was busy and out of Colombo. (Yohan Perera and Sanath Desmond)

    There is no logical reason why the President should be wasting his time meeting MR. The former president is history and his supporters recently showed us in parliament what hypocrites they are.

    shantha Thursday, 30 April 2015 07:49 AM

    Hi Mr President,please do not agree on a one to one meeting,what is trying to do is to persuade you to drop all corruption charges against him and believe me he will plead with you to drop the charges against him and all stinking ministers who sucked out the wealth of the poor man and of the entire nation,so please do not agree on a meeting one to one,he hates mr President be very vigilant

    Harshi Thursday, 30 April 2015 07:52 AM

    Is there any need for a meeting? MR has ideas opposite to the majority who voted MS to power. Let good governance continue without going out of the way to dilute it. I think it is best to keep MR and his cohort out of the new SLFP. That is the wish of the people. MR can form a new party with the like of Wimal, Pavithra,

    People Thursday, 30 April 2015 08:02 AM

    How many times did Mahinda meet Chandrika during the Rajapaksa regime? And, why do Sirisena needs to meet Mahinda? To influence Sirisena?

    Why bother? Is MR about to request forgive me my sins?

    Flexibility should not use for the prostitution. Every body are busy. How about president time schedule. Flexibility should come from every side.

    Why bring cancelled coins back to circulation. You saw his jealousy when he talked today on TV about the 19A.

    Sue Thursday, 30 April 2015 01:35 PM

    Why is everyone so anxious to bring back a man who has robbed the country and has been rejected by a majority? Bringing him back is dangerous to the present President. Keep him away from politics at all cost.

    Freebird Wednesday, 29 April 2015 10:09 PM

    If the former president so busy then what about the current president he must be tooo...much...busy via DM Android App

    Premalal Wednesday, 29 April 2015 10:16 PM

    What could the president have anything in common with a person who he himself accused of being the most corrupt and so vindictive that his own life and the lives of his family were in danger had he lost the election?

    Fassey Wednesday, 29 April 2015 10:46 PM

    When a President of the country allocates time for a citizen for a meeting, he should somehow find time to make it. If he tries to be too smart and pretends to be busy, then of course the President should just ignore.

    lkboy Thursday, 30 April 2015 09:23 AM

    MS should not trust people like Welgama.

    cyril n Wednesday, 29 April 2015 10:47 PM

    Nothing will come out of this proposed meeting. MS knows well the behaviour of MR and will not associate with him nor he will give him nomination.

    anura Thursday, 30 April 2015 02:11 PM

    Both these mature politicos should act with dignity. There is not a single problem that they cannot talk about. After having similar political views for years, they should be able to see eye and talk frankly, express their views . Both of them should be able to compromise for the sake of the SLFP.

    Park Thursday, 30 April 2015 09:34 AM

    President Maithripala Sirisena is a very respectable person. By cancelling the last meeting Mahinda snubbed President Maithripala Sirisena. Mahinda almost treated Maithree whom he would have killed if Mahinda won the elections, as a peon.If President Maithripala Sirisena is to meet Mahinda, then Mahinda should publicly apologize for cancelling the earlier meeting and should agree to meet President Sirisena in the presence of Chandrika.

    Eng.M.V.R.Perera Thursday, 30 April 2015 02:41 PM

    They can only compromise for the sake of the country and to keep the undertaking given to the country that the corruption during the last regime will be unearth and the persons responsible will be punished

    de silva Wednesday, 29 April 2015 11:27 PM

    Don;t associate Dictators.It will end up in a disaster.I think you can remember what you told us that if you lost the election what would have happened to you.He will ruin you.That is for sure.

    Aba Jayasekera Thursday, 30 April 2015 09:30 PM

    Welgama was given a date and time to have the meeting. However, he said that the meeting cannot be held because officials are being questioned and remanded by the BC.The situation is the same now. So why have a meeting now ?

    The president Maitreepala Sirisena should never get close to Mahandra rajpakse,he is trying to persuade the president to remove corruption charges against him and also to remove the other 8 ministers,he is no fool,the is nothing that Rajpakse should talk about,he has lost,and keep things to himself and not interrupt progress

    This government supports proffesionals and knowledgeble buisnessman. Unstinted support to the government of MS will be the key for settling differences.

    A toast. To MR the deposed and MS the incumbent let they not meet in order the latter remains free of corruption.

    If they had similar views, why did they contest. They had very divergent views - one honest and the other dishonest.

    C.K.Lankaputhra Thursday, 30 April 2015 04:46 PM

    Before entering to the venue, MR must be thoroughlly checked for any arms hidden in or out his body by the PSD.

    MR should retire and let the new govt do their job without any interference.

    Mr Welgama. Please keep MR out of reach of our dear president. Let MR be busy with what ever he is doing right now. Before long there wont be any temples for him to visit.Why does he carry the podium, flower arrangements, mike,And speakers when visiting temples. Advice him they are not necessary.
