United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said today that he went to the US to learn how to form a UNP Government and develop the country and if he wanted to learn about corruption and terror he would have gone to Medamulana.

“I went to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States to teach and I wanted to learn the methods of developing the country. I wanted to learn how to set up a UNP Government and develop the country,” he said.

“I am not concerned about constructing roads and ports. It is up to the Provincial Councils and Pradeshiya Sabhas to do so. We do not need new Ports but to make the best use of the existing ones. What we need is to take the country forward,” he said.

Mr. Wickremesinghe said he discussed about the alternatives which could be introduced after scrapping the executive presidency. “We discussed the new system of governance which could be introduced after scrapping the executive presidency. We need proper governance in the country. Otherwise we will have to undergo negative consequences,” he said.

Mr. Wickremesinghe said he got an opportunity to learn how a Government topples due to human right violations and corruption.

He said the future UNP Government would enhance employment opportunities by developing technical knowledge among the youth in the country.

“We can create more than 100,000 job opportunities by giving short term technical knowledge. We do not need an economy where people should migrate to Middle East but an economy where those who are already there to come back. It can only be done under a UNP Government.” (Ajith Siriwardana)

    No... not atall, Ranil is a not a good bowler to get wickets, he gives more runs (6) & (4) for Mahinda to score. Mahinda is Sanga & Mahela knows to play the googlies.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Thursday, 22 May 2014 10:57 AM

    Ranil is crazy indeed..... what expressions you could expect from a lunatic.... forget about it. We waste our precious time talking about Ranil.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Thursday, 22 May 2014 11:00 AM

    Waste of time talking about Ranil who wants to grab the opposition leaders chair until his death.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Thursday, 22 May 2014 11:03 AM

    If you arfe a great leader, like President Rajapakshe, being in the same chair he will solve the problems of SriLanka masses. You cannot reach his status as you are below the line Sir... We welcome MR's family to rule this nation peacefully.....

    One day the whole country will understand the value of you and they will suffer for what have they done to destroy our image. But if you want to have a UNP government the party should get rid of dirty Sajith [double dealing].

    This guy is back. He hasn't learnt anything if he cannot appreciate that development of infrastructure which includes port is vital to the progress of the country.

    sss Thursday, 22 May 2014 11:22 AM

    also how not to apply law to the connected which has already tarnish the image of Sri lanka

    Real Peace Thursday, 22 May 2014 11:25 AM

    I watched one of Ranil's lectures in the US - it was absolutely brilliant. He is the right person to govern this country, but he is still in the opposition or he will be in the opposition for ever because he did not have the heart to kill thousands of innocent civilians in the Vanni. Very sad.

    kumaraya Thursday, 22 May 2014 11:33 AM

    Only a looser and a fossil need to go to the USA to learn politics relevant to Sri Lanka! What an ignoramus!!

    sinhala modaya Thursday, 22 May 2014 11:38 AM

    Cat is out of the bag now, shame on unpers......long time CIA informer finaly admits he is paid by USA & he is being groomed by CIA & NSA to try out sri lanka spring.........not a chance he will have to swim from hambantota port & run to maldives

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 22 May 2014 08:23 AM

    Absolutely true. But what do these yakko fellows of Medamulana know about Massachussets Uni.

    amal Thursday, 22 May 2014 08:30 AM

    only 5 came to listen to your ideas that you learnt.

    Herbert Karunaratne Friday, 23 May 2014 01:43 PM

    I don't know what they taught you at MIT, but let me give you a piece of advice from Medamulana Uni. If you wait until the government falls on its own, without the opposition working hard at it, then your WAIT WILL BE ETERNAL.!

    He was teaching a couple of tables and chairs. He says building ports and roads are the responsibility of PC and PS. Ports and major highways are central responsibility. He has already got his wires crossed. via DM iPad app

    Go to Medhamulana or to any god forsaken place. Not to learn about corruption but to learn how to win elections how to win peoples hearts and minds and how to be media savvy. Also how to unite members under the party leadership. via DM iPad app

    U went to a wrong place... U should have gone to China to learn.. but too late now..... Mahinda R ... already there....
