Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa said for the first time since 1931, the residence of the Rajapaksa family was searched by the police and questioned whether it was a part of the present Government’s policy of good governance.

He told the media during his visit to the Asgiriya Temple today that the Rajapaksa family had been in politics since 1931, but for the first time his house was searched by the police.

After paying homage to the sacred tooth relic the former president met the Mahanayake Theras. 

He pointed out that political victimisations and incidents of violence were going on unchecked all over the country and the Government should take steps to prevent them.

Many of his loyalists who were present during his visit had wanted to meet the former President and had requested him to mingle with them and spend some time.(J.A.L. Jayasinghe and L.B. Senaratne)

    hamfert Wednesday, 21 January 2015 03:03 PM

    What Goes Around Comes Around Mr X President

    gayan Tuesday, 20 January 2015 07:50 PM

    He can summon more loyalty in defeat than Ranil in a victory.

    RR Wednesday, 21 January 2015 08:46 AM

    Now you know what it feels like to have your privacy invaded.

    "Is searching my house good governance-MR" Please ask Dr. Mervyn ! 1

    Joseph Tuesday, 20 January 2015 08:20 PM

    So only when you taste your own medicine you realize how bitter it is. You are no more the President and the law is same to you as was for others

    Patriot Tuesday, 20 January 2015 08:21 PM

    This defeat is blessing in disguise for MR as all the traitors have now crossed over and he now knows who his real friends are.Please take care of your self as the motherland may soon need your service yet again and it is obvious from what these traitors are doing to devide the country again......

    Indunil Tuesday, 20 January 2015 08:21 PM

    Still people did not realize that he is a great actor. He brought cheap politics to Sri Lanka. He patriotism is just a tool to get votes. If he really love his motherland he will not earn this much wealth

    murry Wednesday, 21 January 2015 11:25 AM

    Euclid Wednesday, 21 January 2015 09:08 AM

    How come? Our homes were never searched by the police.

    DIG Srilal Wednesday, 21 January 2015 09:03 PM

    Sir, please allow me to correct you. Court warrant ordered us to search "house". What we found was a mansion.

    Freddy Wednesday, 21 January 2015 06:22 PM

    The witch hunt is on and the abuse of the New Government has gone berserk. If this is Democracy which is to be practise. Worst than the old regime.

    Deen Mohideen Saturday, 24 January 2015 04:06 PM

    Some pepolpe are so foolish to say that former President Loved his country, see what is happening, so much money, cars ifrom the innocent peoples money which they enjoyed with their families...so much commissions as well

    Bala Tuesday, 20 January 2015 03:39 PM

    He is the only president who has contested after the 2nd term. No other president was greedy like him to be in power for ever. So how can you say that MR is the only defeated leader who has still a huge popularity among his fellow country men.

    Rana Wednesday, 21 January 2015 09:29 AM

    Cos, he is the only Defeated leader in Sri Lanka
