UPFA candidate and government Minister Mervyn Silva took to the stage at a UNP election rally in Kelaniya this morning and delivered a message to the opposition organizer of the area saying both parties should campaign for the General Elections peacefully.
However the Minister noted that supporters of the ‘Swan” have no room to campaign for the polls from the Kelaniya area. General Sarath Fonseka had contested the last Presidential polls under the swan symbol. (Courtesy Lankadeepa)
Is this the 1st frog from the UPFA? With so many contestants & national list nominees, and Pres promised to reduce the cabinet to 35 - there will be many more frogs jumping to some side in the opp

Mad Fellows have no place no time and they themselves don't know what they are doing? But, the sensible people will have to be in the watch!
Monday, 01 March 2010 02:02 AM
Hey Sarath, you can have Mervyn.... I am sure he is much better than Tilvin
Monday, 01 March 2010 02:23 AM
for a change, this is good humor
Monday, 01 March 2010 02:45 AM
Just drama .................. just to collecting some votes...............
Monday, 01 March 2010 03:00 AM
Very good Mervin , brave son of mother Sri lanka,
Monday, 01 March 2010 03:04 AM
i wonder whether it is our real Mervin?
anyway show ur peace in action...
Monday, 01 March 2010 03:15 AM
An Appeal to voters of Gampaha district...please do not vote for person like Mervyn Silva. UPFA members have many other candidates for voting. This is your turn. Use your votes wisely. Elect only decent people to parliament.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 10:31 PM
Very Good Precedent. But make sure both parties stick to this historic agreement. GOOD TO HEAR, ONCE IN A WAY MERVYN SILVA IS DOING SOME ATTRACTIVE THINGS.
Monday, 01 March 2010 03:20 AM
Go Mervyn, Go !!! This side or that side or other side, you will sit in your seat! alas that's the truth!
Monday, 01 March 2010 03:22 AM
may be MR advised him to keep a good relation ship with UNP as they need 2/3 majority. Something happening, cannot understand, it is not good for the democracy.
Monday, 01 March 2010 03:34 AM
This so called Doca couldn't take even get 2000 votes from Central Colombo at the last General Election.Who is he trying to fool??
Monday, 01 March 2010 04:28 AM
Its really good exaple to others provided he did in good faith everybody needs violent free election.
Monday, 01 March 2010 04:31 AM
Coming events cast their shadows.
Monday, 01 March 2010 04:34 AM
So why is he so dead against the swan? that is cos that was sucha threat! Unp is not a threat to him but the swan alliance was. so it proevs that it was a wrong decision to contest separately. & these ppl are dead against SF COS even in the opposition he will be STRONG & DYNAMIC.
Monday, 01 March 2010 04:43 AM
Mervyn Silva - "Sabaa Venasak"
Monday, 01 March 2010 04:53 AM
That's a small Rehearsal.
Monday, 01 March 2010 05:04 AM
Hey Mervin, Why don't you stay permanently on the UNP stage? Anyhow threat is not for UNP or Swan . it is only for the UPFA members
Monday, 01 March 2010 05:17 AM
i feel like there is a hidden agreement between UPFA and UNP. Suspicion started when soon after Ranil came from India, he met MR. Now this incident. Are these guys planning to eliminate SF for the sake of India?
Monday, 01 March 2010 05:39 PM
Do leopards change their spots?
Monday, 01 March 2010 06:25 PM
This gives the 'best' message to the country - 'similar types' are contesting from the two major parties.
Wednesday, 03 March 2010 05:45 AM
If Mr.Mervyn like to drive on the elephant even just as a joker why dont he try to accompany the swan too because the swan is the only sign to protect our country from the terrorist
Sunday, 28 February 2010 03:38 PM
Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde!
Sunday, 28 February 2010 08:50 AM
poor ''Hansaya ''
Sunday, 28 February 2010 09:03 AM
We should elect correct people to the parliament. It is up to the people to decide.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 09:12 AM
This some gimmick because he knows the UNP will go flat out for him.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 09:18 AM
this is general in Sri Lanka. nothing to wonder in these types of public warnings....
Sunday, 28 February 2010 09:22 AM
MERVYN HAS TO WORRY FOR NOTHING. BCOZ HE WILL BE ELECTED THROUGH NATIONAL LIST FOR SURE....
Sunday, 28 February 2010 09:26 AM
He shouldn't have done this intruding as it may harm his own party and him.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 01:18 PM
What is he upto? Your guess is as good as mine.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 01:20 PM
Mervyn knows his days are numbered..He is trying to be in the good books of the UNP.. Again another shameless act from a shameless fellow.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 01:38 PM
UNP shouldn't have taken Mervyn to the stage. Im sure people will decide on Mervyns faith very soon.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 02:06 PM
He is planning something.....
Sunday, 28 February 2010 02:27 PM
THE THUG SHOULD HAVE BEEN KICKED OUT FROM THE STAGE, SHAME ON UNP TO ENTERTAIN HIM.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 02:44 PM
YOU CAN JUST IMAGINE HIS STATE OF MIND.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 02:46 PM
Sunday, 28 February 2010 08:38 AM
thanks for clarifying the "real" threat.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 03:41 PM
Kiss the hand if you can't cut it.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 04:43 PM
May be the cunning MR would have sent this Joker to check his strength in Kelaniya and to get some smypahty votes (atleast 1000) preferential votes. Oh poor nutty !!!!
Sunday, 28 February 2010 04:45 PM
He is appointed through the National list always as MR knows well that he cannot even get 1000 votes for himself other than his relations will vote for him.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 05:48 PM
Oh... he had done endless services to our nation and for his party.... so he should not lose his image. (At the first instance, does he has an image). He is an additional weight for our soil.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 05:52 PM
Luckly we were not prepared with a gallon of Red paint to give you a paint bath Mr. Mervyn Silva. You escaped, next time if we see you .... sorry Gomma bath only you will have OK.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 05:55 PM
Jayawewa .... Mervyn Mathi Thuma.... you are the next President of SriLanka after Mahinda..... Good luck.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 06:11 PM
mervyn encouraging 'peaceful polls' is the biggest joke of the century.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 06:35 PM
It looks like both parties scared to SF.I am sure they will get together to go against SF. Is it a double game by UNP.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 08:24 PM
Don't forget that he is the Prime Minister in waiting!
Sunday, 28 February 2010 08:34 PM
When he try to get reformed, help him instead of attacking him.
Sunday, 28 February 2010 09:21 PM
ohhh get lost............
Sunday, 28 February 2010 09:42 PM
Try and see this other way round to see what happens.
