I will enter politics if people want me- Malaka

10 May 2012 06:24 am - 72     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Minister Mervyn Silva’s son Malaka Silva says that he has not decided to enter active politics at the moment, but if there is any request from the public he will seriously consider it. “I have not decided to enter politics right now as I am busy with business and social service activities,” he told Daily Mirror online.

He also said that if there is a request from the people he will seriously consider it and enter politics with the full blessings of President Mahinda Rajapaksa and his father. “I am already involved in charity work as well as social service activities for the welfare of the people, because I was brought up insuch a background, but I firmly believe in the people's power,” he said

    The verdict is in ... and its quite clear NO ONE wants you in politics

    SLcomedycentral Saturday, 12 May 2012 06:17 AM

    Maybe like His DAD he could buy a doctorate so then he's education would sort out. Sri Lanka's politics has officially ruined everything be it from the share market to the price trends of Consumer goods

    I wish this all could just be a dream (A Very bad Dream)

    raja Saturday, 12 May 2012 12:11 AM

    if I were a sarcastic person, I would say that he is going to give more freedom Sinhalease people who enjoyed freedom given by Mervin.

    younis Friday, 11 May 2012 09:56 AM

    you must be joking. Busy with public service? You mean busy with public vice?

    Like father, like son. Go away and crawl under the nearest rock. Idiot

    Shaik Ahamath Saturday, 12 May 2012 12:27 AM

    We should not judge Malaka too harshly. I believe he was brought up by his mother who is not as barmy as his father.

    steve Friday, 11 May 2012 10:04 AM

    someone please try him to a mango tree!

    shantha madawelass Friday, 11 May 2012 10:07 AM

    Please come to politics. County needs more pigs to eat human excrement.

    Piyal Thursday, 10 May 2012 08:00 AM

    I don't think there is any reason to judge a person by what media might believe of him . Just because some politicians have a back bone to comment on things publicly compared to some who do it behind the citizens back, does not give any reason for any of us to judge .. It's a view they particularly believe in and what some citizens might believe .. Each individual has a right to live their life and have a personal life as this is a democratic country .. So in this democratic country give respect to everyone's own personal and judge your own character before you judge anothers .

    Rasa Saran Thursday, 10 May 2012 08:00 AM

    It reminds me one of Daily Mirror's cartoons.. "IN CASE OF EMERGENCY BREAK GLASS".. well.. we don't want to see more people getting inside that glass box.. There are enough of Andareys inside the courtyard now..

    MYSrilanka Thursday, 10 May 2012 08:02 AM
