I don’t take revenge-MR

7 December 2012 04:08 am - 58     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


“I am not a man who takes revenge. The law is equal to everyone irrespective of their positions. If someone commits an offense, he will get punishments”, Said President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the opening Ceremony of the Weligama Resort on the Southern Expressway.

Further speaking he said “The opposition protested against corruption of a certain chairman those days. They even went to the Bribery Commission, and said action should be taken against his wife also. When we started the methodology according to the law and constitution, we are accused. But we are not discouraged by such accusations. We act independently according to the Law.”

    Dammika Friday, 07 December 2012 10:33 AM

    What about Duminda, Mervyn, Gota

    John Fernandez Friday, 07 December 2012 08:13 AM

    No Sir, law is not equal when Mervyn commits a crime.

    mike Friday, 07 December 2012 10:53 AM

    what a joke hummmm keep it up

    save the nation Friday, 07 December 2012 11:08 AM

    Dear President
    As someone who voted you dearly, I must say you insult the intelligence of the people when you say this, It is a fact that law in our country is applied one way for your supporters and one way for your opposers.

    Sarath Fonseka, and Mervin Silva are clear distinctions.

    It makes me sad to see how you have become blinded by what your party is doing to the country. The whole moral fabric in the society is being destroyed by the precedents set by you and your MPs.

    Your legacy is being destroyed by petty minded people like Mervin Silva, and you think they are your friends.

    Kumar Friday, 07 December 2012 01:02 PM

    Best joke

    I regret casting my vote for MR for his second term.

    Lal.Fernando. Saturday, 08 December 2012 03:43 AM

    Dear President, if the law is equal to all people, why is it that Mervyn Silva is not been questioned over various allegations he has against him? I hope Mr. President you will keep to your word.

    rav Saturday, 08 December 2012 04:39 AM

    i m accept 100%. you are not revenge your brother who are in your political team.

    Jagath Saturday, 08 December 2012 12:01 PM

    It is too late... I don’t think you will have another chance to correct it by your vote.
    our future generate will happen to pay for your foolish decisions by their lives.

    Sinhala Man Saturday, 08 December 2012 08:53 PM

    LM Friday, 07 December 2012 06:37 AM

    Mr. President,

    Why didn't your government get more opposition MPs to the PSC, then most of the accusations wouldn't have been directed at you and your government.
    Express your true intension by action not with words

    MR mamma Friday, 07 December 2012 06:42 AM

    kautilya Friday, 07 December 2012 06:44 AM

    Why are you telling lies? What you did to SF was blatant revenge for challenging you at the last Presidential Election.

    Sagarika Friday, 07 December 2012 06:44 AM

    Mr President then it is great! But what we see is the law is applied selectively, which is a problem!

    mew Friday, 07 December 2012 06:17 AM

    HA HA

    unchikun Friday, 07 December 2012 06:45 AM

    Prasad Friday, 07 December 2012 06:45 AM

    Yes MR

    Please do this to all your ministors and family members also. Then they can claim that they are clear !!
    Also other cairmans of Govt authorities. Then we will take your word on curruption

    Adam Friday, 07 December 2012 06:42 AM

    Mr. President, then you can start the application of the law equally to everyone around you. You can start it from your right hand, Dr. Silva, Kudu Silva and all other hooligoon around you. Please show it by example but not by words. We need a country to live peacefully. But the way country heading to is really pathetic. Corruptions, Misery of uneducated leaders, Politicization are the burning issues in the country.

    SilverHawk Friday, 07 December 2012 06:45 AM

    So Is Duminda is

    (a) above the Law ?
    (b) below the Law ?
    (c) equal to the Law ?
    (d) None of the above

    Kevin Friday, 07 December 2012 06:58 AM

    President, how can you lie like this. You not onlyt ake revenege you destroy them .... see Mangala Samarawera , Sarath Fonseka, Sripathi Sooriyarachchi to name a few. The list is long.
