UNP Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra today said she was uncertain as how to address former President Mahinda Rajapaksa since he was also now an ordinary parliamentarian.

“Mahinda Rajapaksa lost his reputation because of his extreme hunger for power. If he stayed at home without contesting the parliamentary election, we could have still addressed him as the former president. Now I am in a dilemma as how to address him, whether to call him ‘Manthri Thuma’ (parliamentarian), sir or former president. He is just a parliamentarian like any of us now. Other parliamentarians also call him ‘Manthri Thuma,” she said.

Addressing a meeting in Wellampitiya yesterday, she also said the actions of the new government were very silent in comparison with the previous government and added the political culture in the country was now taking a new leap.

“We like to have decent ministers with simple political principles. They should be able to travel in their vehicle only with their driver and not with a security squad, unless their lives are under threat,” MP Premachandra said.

She said President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had already shown by example how to create a Yahapalana government. (Chaturanga Pradeep and Indika Sri Aravinda)

    He is one of the greatest sons of this country. He is not a person who was engaged in kudu deals like certain politicians .

    Jaya Tuesday, 22 September 2015 03:20 PM

    You can call him now...hi lokka. Only that he earned according to MR.

    TISSA Wednesday, 23 September 2015 10:45 AM

    PLEASE LEAVE HIM ALONE. HE DOES NOT TOLERATE UNGRATEFUL TRAITORS. YOU LET DOWN YOUR FATHER AND GRAND FATHER BY GOING TO UNP.

    This lady seems to be feeling the pinch of not being in the limelight with this government and hungry to expose her opinions for no good reasons of value. She should rather go and work for her people rather than wasting time talking nonsense.

    You are nothing but a pathetic. You cannot compare yourself to a great leader like Mahinda Rajapaksha . You are nowhere compared to him.
