    We share the same view Mr.minister, but our impression is not on SLC, but on you!! Didn't you hear why Sanga spoke in London? Just keep your hands off the administration as there are better qualified people who can run it.

    This is what Arjuna was explaining from the beginning every single day, better at least you have woken up late,

    Muzammil Sedar Friday, 10 August 2012 03:04 AM

    Hon. Minister. SLC has become a Business centre. Not every one realize that. Lets reorganise this MUDALALI system and put into the same style which brought International Credits to Sri Lanka in the past. Its in your hands. Dont count the days. Take immediate action preferably before the end of Indian Tour.

    LankanFellow1 Friday, 10 August 2012 03:16 AM

    As though the ministries work for the betterment of the country!!!!

    Siripala Friday, 10 August 2012 03:15 AM

    Minster you are an utter failure. You had better resign gracefully.

    Senna Friday, 10 August 2012 10:28 AM

    Appoint Arjuna as the minister and and Aravinda as deputy to manage?

    Thomas Ranger Friday, 10 August 2012 04:10 AM

    History is repeating itself. This Minister will get rid of the present Board for Cricket and implant some of his hench aiyas to make a fast buck.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 09 August 2012 09:53 AM

    From the Horse's mouth. So what does the Minister plan to do to revamp cricket? Kick the SLC officers out? This has now become a typical excuse of all ministers - to blame the officials under them and save their skins. The elected politicians are ultimately responsible for everything that is happening in their ministries.

    Just Another Citizen Thursday, 09 August 2012 10:08 AM

    Really?

    Jawfer Thursday, 09 August 2012 10:10 AM

    Minister what you did for cricket ? What you all did for Srilanka Olympic team complained no coaches for our olypmipion . You ministers spend lot tax payers money without any accountability

    ANTON Thursday, 09 August 2012 10:12 AM

    As the minister of sports he should have developed methods towards betterment without passing the buck.

    K.V.Wajira Hemantha Thursday, 09 August 2012 09:55 AM

    Let playesr do what ever they want to do...otherwise dont implement faslse rules and Regulations..Srilanka Cricketers totally focus on Money........These guys out of control...no one can manege them but Mervin will......

    Nodrog Thursday, 09 August 2012 10:15 AM

    Typical. If they had done well he would have taken all the credit.

    Mikee Thursday, 09 August 2012 09:59 AM

    You are heading the Ministry and if you palm the blame you are not fit to handle this Ministry. All these Ministerial angels play the blame game. We have a set of thoroughly inefficient goons starting from Petroleum, Education, Sports and many more to come. Wonder of Asia !!!

    buffaloa citizen Thursday, 09 August 2012 10:02 AM

    Why dont you state that you alone the ruination of the financial status of SLC? Why are you trying to find reasons of irrelevance when under your Ministry cricketers had not been paid for years while you and your masters have been spending extravagantly towards party and overseas trips. Can you explain what happened to Rupees 7 million worth of olympic tickets purchased under your ministry and who are the persons awarded those tickets? and whether those awarded were your henchmen who re-sold them in the black market?

    Daya Thursday, 09 August 2012 10:11 AM

    You are complaining about an org where you have unlimate authority to make a positive influence. It's like CEO complain about his own company.

    Ramzeel Thursday, 09 August 2012 10:40 AM

    Is Mahindananda working for the betterment of the country.

    Jambalaya Friday, 10 August 2012 06:26 AM

    The moment a politician of any hue enter the adminstration of sports the rot set in.

    Siri Thursday, 09 August 2012 10:54 AM

    we can see cricket has gone out of your control.

    Appuhamy Thursday, 09 August 2012 11:07 AM

    You are part of the problem.

    Raj Thursday, 09 August 2012 11:01 AM

    For the betterment of the country and for sports, he should resign immediately and should not take up any ministerialor adminstrative appointment

    dinesh withanage Thursday, 09 August 2012 11:02 AM

    leave cricket aside. we saw our position in olympic. gear up to achieve it

    R Ekanayake Thursday, 09 August 2012 11:25 AM

    Politics has ruined entire Sri Lanka

    Ravi

    SL Thursday, 09 August 2012 11:53 AM

    How many times I have seen that people that are part of the problem trying to solve it! You cannot sugarcoat wrong. Right is always right and wrong is always wrong!

    TM Lal Thursday, 09 August 2012 11:58 AM

    What should the minister have done is to identify the problems in SLC and implement corrective actions. Blame game is not going to do any good. It has become a tradition in Sri Lanka that Ministers are not taking any responsibility for anything, but only blame someone else when something goes wrong. Ministers are there to enjoy the life, travel abroad as much as possible and take only credit for someone else’s contribution. What a fantastic life these ministers enjoy in Sri Lanka.

    Dayan Thursday, 09 August 2012 11:47 AM

    As you are the one who appointed these officials UNDER GUIDED DEMOCRACY system and also responsible for NOT CHOOSING correct official team to Olympic.

    gael87 Friday, 10 August 2012 07:12 AM

    Fellows seems to aware that they have to do some work.but they don't know how to do that..once they mess up the whole thing they keep complaining officers.i think this is the same with education as well.its because capable people won't come forward to politics.

    dammika Thursday, 09 August 2012 12:02 PM

    See days situation in Sri-Lanka sports. Cricket, Football, Athletics, cycling a few to mention. People don't come to see matches now. Thosend words to write.

    wedige Thursday, 09 August 2012 11:41 PM

    Dear Minister - You see from the above responses, how much people respct/believe you !
    Btter to keep quite !

    Indeewara Thursday, 09 August 2012 12:59 PM

    We need people like Arjuna,mahindananda is speaking to neutralize the public outrage against the corrupt officials.

    Janaki Kalansuriya Thursday, 09 August 2012 01:05 PM

    Who is not working towards the betterment of the country? I suppose he thinks he is working towards the betterment of the Nation. Largest number of Ministers, largest number of participants at the UN and other seminars the president attends, the largest Athlete:Official participation at Olympics, etc etc and he thinks he has the right to make a comment like this.

    Rajinder A Friday, 10 August 2012 01:39 AM

    Sir, so you do something about it, aren't you the Minister ?

    Amila.G Thursday, 09 August 2012 01:15 PM

    SAD COUNTRY .Not only SLC very sports body in this country is corrupt and messed up whole sale. All what the officials are worried and concerned is when is my nest foreign trip and what are my financial benefits.

    Tilak Thursday, 09 August 2012 01:38 PM

    Yesterday in Parliament Minister said SLC is well administrated now, and there want be any financial crisis in the future.Now he is coming out with a another story!

    Dham Friday, 10 August 2012 08:17 AM
