    Well Said Brother....

    I still wonder why the hell we don't think of a a five year or even a ten year development plan instead of worrying who will win the 2015 elections.

    Are we all sure whether life is infinite ? Expect the unexpected ? Take it up positively and work towards development.

    Just lamenting like this to get some credit is not very important now - reduce the cost of living and serve the poor...

    Arent you tired of bending over so much?

    Ossan Salam - Doha Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:27 AM

    No need of any computer jilmart......MR's victory is inevitable as long as "Redda Hatta - Tie Court Pants" groups are fighting each other.......it is crystal clear that RW will be the OL forever

    Lal Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:24 AM

    Why not do something to improve the Agriculture aspect in Sri Lanka rather than thinking of other things?

    dil Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:23 AM

    Then why isn't the Supreme Court allowing the recount without postponing the case ?????

    Be like this, be over confident but always remember the quotes of Abraham Lincoln :

    You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.

    Kan Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:57 AM

    NOT ONLY 2015, BUT 2021, 2027, 2033 ..........Kan

    SanathW Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:53 AM

    Unlikely to be a change in UNP leadership, as RW's mission is to bury the UNP once and for all! :p

    Hasiya Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:42 AM

    Well, If all of u all think that Gammanpila is the Octopus, that means everyone is 100% sure that MR will win... ! Me too wish the same would happen....

    summa Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:41 AM

    You can tell the same as long as u loose....
    if you want to win plan an execute and be humble when you loose.

    Labby Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:37 AM

    Did MR win the 2010 election ??

    dil Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:34 AM

    will a thief leave a trail of his robbery??? u are naive ind!!! according to ur theory all robberies wud be caught!

    JAMES Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:25 AM

    That is why they tinkered the constitution. May be another computer jillmart will make it certain that MR will in the next election.

    Percy Mandawala Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:12 AM

    Mr.Gammnapila the day dreamer. Many things can change before the next election.

    Chow Chow Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:12 AM

    I guess you have not traveled in Colombo. The roads are a mess. No payment for the pedestrians to walk. The roads are full of holes, What development.

    Hirantha Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:09 AM

    Mr Gammanpila i am sure your party will not exsist till 2015 therefore mind your business before talking abiur MR.

    Lalith Friday, 29 October 2010 09:16 AM

    Summa is right. MR deserves another victory. He has eliminated murderous thugs, reclaimed lost territory and embarked on a massive development program. Sajith, join the government. You are too good for the current opposition party, destined be losers and moaners.

    Geronimo Thursday, 28 October 2010 03:29 PM

    Gamanpila is trying for Paul's place in the prediction arena!!!

    zorro Thursday, 28 October 2010 11:53 AM

    they talk like they know the election results already! may be they do too. They did this before the last presidential election too. Some bells ringing in my head. if he has said for all the good deeds we do the people would reward us, I would have appreciated, but there are no good deeds anyway. One thing they seem to forget, what happen to all these boot liker, when the Almighty has a different plan for the clan? I mean the Katchinsky brothers in Poland never thought that their fate would be like this how it is now!

    wijitha soysa Thursday, 28 October 2010 07:27 AM

    very recently you started to quote such silly thing as bread must be more than Rs.200and if workers strike they should remove from work . but you did't say so before the election.now you seems to be make MR happy to get higher poltical position.

    Sue Thursday, 28 October 2010 07:09 AM

    the way things are happening today, you could be proved right Mr. G'Pila; But I pray to God like I never did before that you are wrong, for the sake of our children and our nation.

    Knight Rider Thursday, 28 October 2010 06:44 AM

    Most of the Ministers are so childish !!!!

    RupasingheR Thursday, 28 October 2010 06:17 AM

    Are they the majority?

    Lanka Puthra Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:11 PM

    Yes there is abosultely no doubt that the incumbent will be the winner in 2015. If he could win in 2005 from a difficult election, and with war behind him and with development projetcs bearing fruit with solid rural support base, its a forgone conclusion.

    Mohd Wednesday, 27 October 2010 06:34 PM

    Then no need any elections to waste our money in the future & if its confirm go ahead!!!

    unl Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:53 AM

    Not only 2015 but also 2020

    Gamage-23 Wednesday, 27 October 2010 01:50 PM

    yes you are quite right. the desperate opposition knows this fact and that is why they seek the help university students to create problems. people are intelligent enough to understand these tactics and will teach another lesson to UNP-JVP-DNA in the coming election!!!

    Ranjan Wednesday, 27 October 2010 01:41 PM

    " Udaya" the octopus. he will be hit during the next cricket world cup. Watch out folks.

    Why you all are worried about the UNP and it's leadership.

    sandman Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:25 AM

    Yes definitely, COMPUTERS will ensure that........................

    gUL fERNANDO Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:23 AM

    We also hope that Mr Gammanpila also will share a strong portfolio in that government as a cabinet minister. Also you have the potentiality be a future premier provided you should not represent only the radical Sinhale

    Hope not.

    Any things can be changed suddenly. That is the temperament of the world. no one can safeguard anything. all belongs to either the god judgment or fate

    Fayad Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:14 AM

    NO MR NO HELAURUMAYA no choice MR has to win for your survival

    Ruwan Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:13 AM

    This is very true. It is not because of the UNP but MR has done so much . I travelled round the country every city, every electrorate something is happening. Amazing. After indepemdance this is the biggest development drive undertaken by any governemnt.

    Ranjit Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:13 AM

    Yes he may, if he can sustain the act of destabilizing the opposition. Before 2006 no one thought he will be our president and get two third majority in parliament . It all depends on how successful he is in retaining power by.unethical means.
    He will definitely be the president if Ranil is the UNP leader.

    malkanthi Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:25 AM

    2015 is long way Mr Minister. Due to rapid development in many areas, none can predict who will survive by this time! By the way, you may be interested in holding a good ministry in the next term, so you started the laundry campaign.

    modawansa Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:05 AM

    You are making statements as if your party is having credibility.

    Wasantha Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:04 AM

    There is a huge competition to patronize MR. Don't they have enough work to do without talking elections scheduled to be held on 2015?. People have no more interest as they lost faith on elections. Why can't they talke somesort of meaningful action with regard sufferings of masses. Cost of living, dying of democracy , escalating violations in the universities and media freedom. Nothing other than personal agenda. Disgraceful Mr. Gommanpila.

    Dinesh Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:02 AM

    New laundry man........

    Cynic Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:02 AM

    He will definitely win as the free press and the independent judiciary are both supressed. Naduth hamuduruwange, baduth hamuduruwange. However history teaches us NEVER to discount peoples power. A 100 JHUs won't be able to withstand that. Good luck to you under this dictatorship.

    Tom Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:02 AM

    Ah! Whats your predication for the Agriculture, Environment and Industrial sectors?

    m rifai nazim Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:01 AM

    Have a vision for 2015 without predicting of Election results. We are not worried about who will be elected in another 5 years time to the high office, we need to move towards a REAL DEVELOPMENT OF OUR ECONOMY.

    upul Wednesday, 27 October 2010 06:57 AM

    Wara Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:48 AM

    Some people still talk about "Computer Jilmart". I don't understand, if that happened why couldn't they (Opposition) count the counting center summery sheet and get an rough figure at least by now. If some places missing, still 1.8/ million cannot be missed ( That is only the difference).

    Voter Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:44 AM

    Why are you so excited now. Just do your work than talking and let the people decide in 2015.

    ind Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:44 AM

    Why did JVP withdraw "JIMART" accuse from the election pettition saying that they have more important evidence ???? So I think you people still talk about computer Jilmart, they themselves understood that is not possible. So be wise when comment. Because that shows your ignorance on IT.

    chris abey Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:43 AM

    Should ask him to predict the result of the forthcoming cricket world cup.LOL

    Don't be too sure, things can change anytime like a Tsunami. Who knows even a member of the fair sex can come forward and beat everyone else as people get fed up when some become swollen headed when in power.

    TMA Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:30 AM

    This is a threat made 2 democracy.

    Chow Chow Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:30 AM

    This shows the present government is worried about the change in leadership of the UNP. Of course they want their man Ranil as to lead the UNP.
