Democratic Party Leader Sarath Fonseka today hailed the example set by Indians by toppling the corrupt and inefficient UPA Government and urged Sri Lankans to follow suit and save this country from the clutches of a corrupt regime.

“The people of India have taken a responsible decision by rejecting corruption and inefficiency and electing a new government. We approve and applaud the decision taken by the Indian people to topple the corrupt Government which ruled the country for 10 years. We request our people to also take responsible and brave decisions to save the country from corruption by upholding good governance and justice for all,” Mr. Fonseka said.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    They never said India is a hindu kingdom but they won. Do u think a party can win in Sri Lanka without saying the word "Sinhala Buddhist country"???? First make all Sri Lankans united then expect to fight against curuption and all.

    Izmy Friday, 16 May 2014 11:49 AM

    Now the oppositiön will market this new Indian govt as if we depend on India for everything. Why not if they care about the people ask the govt to reduce the prices of milk powder which has dropped by more than $.1000 s.

    rukshan Friday, 16 May 2014 11:49 AM

    The people of india voted modi for his great economic policy!!! SF is correct we need to do the same

    Aruna Friday, 16 May 2014 11:55 AM

    But people are not ready for a puppet like SF.

    Saman Friday, 16 May 2014 12:01 PM

    It's time for opposition parties to re-build closer relations with the world and united to get rid of corruption, thuggery and Bad Governance. Gen SF and the Opposition parties should visit India and the west and re-build closer ties with them.

    Rohan F. Friday, 16 May 2014 12:03 PM

    There's no eternal rule in democracy. The longer they try to stay, the quicker they are been kicked out.

    ind Saturday, 17 May 2014 07:54 AM

    Then again MR is infront !

    dias Saturday, 17 May 2014 03:12 AM

    Sri-lankans will take a positive decision very soon. Only problem is the dis unity among opposition leaders.

    kankan Friday, 16 May 2014 12:15 PM

    Is there anyone in Sri Lanka to stand against MR in elections?

    Is there?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 16 May 2014 12:17 PM

    Rightly said Sir. It is time to put an end to Family Rule here too.

    Chandapala Saturday, 17 May 2014 09:13 AM

    India produced a Modi. It was the Modi brand name that won the elections around India for BJP. Do we have a Modi Certainly not. We have loads of political opportunists and clowns that people do not trust or have confidence. So hunt for a Modi instead of hobnobbing with Moda Yas. via DM iPad app

    Ranger thomas Saturday, 17 May 2014 03:44 AM

    Try to understand that everything is temporary. The writing is on the wall for MR and his rogues. Look at these names - Ferdinand and /Emelda Marcos, Benazir Bhutto, Richard Nixon,Pervez Musharraf, Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi (MR's mango friend). All these have fallen from grace, so, MR is also on the waiting list.

    Faizal Saturday, 17 May 2014 08:55 AM

    If only upstanding gentlemen of Sri Lanka step up to politics. Current state of affairs is such that we can't trust anyone to be honest in the current parliament. Everyone is a selfish, cut throat who is looking to make money for themselves rather than help people. It's a case of pot calling the kettle black at present. We are a condemned nation unless something major happens in the political arena..

    Chathu Friday, 16 May 2014 12:25 PM

    SF, ok we are ready to do that provided you reveal what is your economic plan, your foreign policy, your cabinet of ministers etc., But do not mention about the old faces of UNP who - same as the MR's - are known very well for nothing but corruption during their 17 year rule.

    migara Saturday, 17 May 2014 09:05 AM

    The Muslim leaders who promoted secularism, except one all others lost. Naraendra Modi was a dynamic leader,He was marketable as a Strong, Kind, humble tea seller,to take India forward, unlike ManMohan Sing a weak leader for a mighty Nation, People wanted a Strong leader, Development of Congress was never seen as a strong selling point, since it was mixed with high level corruption. All this was guided by the free Media with so much democracy, Few leafs for our people on all parties. Truth will prevail and all shame will come out some day...

    shan Friday, 16 May 2014 04:38 PM

    Looks you are a party to MR's family.

    sinhala modaya Friday, 16 May 2014 04:57 PM

    Gono indians didnt topple the way you planed with mercenaries hidden in 5 star hotels but Modi won by winning elections getting votes from people, what did you get when you went alone, only left over unp remnant votes. Dont be greedy for power so soon, wait for your time in 20 year before you die

    ind Saturday, 17 May 2014 04:21 AM

    He is too coming with Family !! Even Ranil came to politics with the help of his uncle (JR) !!!!!!!! Then who do you suppose to bring ??

    Lalith P. Friday, 16 May 2014 05:14 PM

    Modi is a Friend of both China and Japan the two great super powers in Asia.
    MR should build closer ties with Modi's India to keep Sri Lanka safe and not to play Party political tricks.

    [quote name="Dilini"]The time has come for MR to go or rather the time has come for people to chase MR away.[/quote]

    Well said Dilini, same thing will take place in SriLanka soon. People can be cheated but not always.... this is too much.

    sll Friday, 16 May 2014 06:28 PM

    Modi is ready to govern India. I dont see anyone other than MR to govern SL with its present challenges. via DM Android App

    GAMINI Friday, 16 May 2014 01:30 PM

    Then what?, bring you family to power? LOL SL must reduce power of this GOV.

    suresh Friday, 16 May 2014 02:02 PM

    Ha Ha Ha Here we goes again mr fonseka.
    all the best

    lucky peiris Friday, 16 May 2014 02:15 PM

    WELL SAID ! SF IS IDIOT

    Kalu Sudda Friday, 16 May 2014 02:19 PM

    God I must be having dementia. I really thought this guy died.

    Kalu Sudda Friday, 16 May 2014 02:21 PM

    Will bring his son-in -law to take care of the books and plan to make himself very rich.

    Esala Friday, 16 May 2014 02:25 PM

    We are learn LTTE from India once. No need any more Learns from them. We know what to do in next election. Only we need development of mother land for next generation.

    [quote name="Dilini"]The time has come for MR to go or rather the time has come for people to chase MR away.[/quote]

    whatever said and done, it was MR who saved this nation from the clutches of the terrorist. If it was any other known SL leader, we will be still experiencing bombs and killings!

    kotik Friday, 16 May 2014 05:09 PM

    Indian Hindus voted for ultra nationalist Hindu & a man with severe thuggery allegations so you need similar SL figure suiting our countryplease. via DM Android App

    Bernard Wijeyasingha Friday, 16 May 2014 09:32 PM

    Sarath Fonseka has put his foot in his mouth again. the BJP won on a wave of Hindu Nationalism or Hindutva. If Sri Lanka were to follow India's example then the Sri Lankan nationalist movement should produce a person who can lead Sri Lanka to a "Buddhist" oriented future.

    Dilini Friday, 16 May 2014 11:41 AM

    The time has come for MR to go or rather the time has come for people to chase MR away.

    dan Friday, 16 May 2014 11:42 AM

    Of course.... but not with the types of stooges of the Western World and NGOs that we have in the opposition like you and others......
