Rajitha’s son challenges MR

21 June 2015 04:44 am - 87     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Health Minister Rajitha Senaratna’s son yesterday challenged former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to contest the coming general elections from Beliatta.  

Speaking at a meeting at the Sugathadasa Stadium yesterday, Chathura Senaratna said he would end the former President’s political career from the very place it began.  

“Beliatta is where he was first elected as a public representative. I challenge him to contest from the same constituency. I too will contest from there and I will ensure his political career ends where it began,” he said.  

The young politician said the former President had paid supporters to attend his rallies, when he was in office.

“However, during the last Presidential election they had to wait for at least four hours for supporters in Madamulana, even after they paid people to attend the rally,” he said.

    You may have been still alive without being a victim to a bomb blast thanks to MR. At least have some gratitude. Who are you to challenge him. Just think of your age.

It is high time our Old gentlemen still function as MPs and Ministers should think of retiring making room to youngsters to enter Politics.Hope this messages goes to the authorities who are in the Nomination board.

    This man has too bigger mouth and does not know what he talks. He must first learn to respect the leaders who ruled this country. He is no where near MR to challenge. He must have paid a lot to the media for publishing his talk show.

    Don`t insult the Mr.president Rajapaksa , the living hero who saved you all from a very long war, which was given up by you Sinhalese people and was only a dream to win and saved Sinhalese race and your own country for your selfies. It was only a few weeks left for them to fire their long range missiles to Colombo , which your military found buried over there. You all know it as it was seen in TV... Sinhalese and Tamil people have forgotten their wounds... It was a Gods blessing through Mr. president Rajapaksa to your country ! Now the God is checking you all...!!!

    This proves the low quality and lack of any moral values of this moron.... his parents (bad examples set by the father) should be blamed for bringing-up insensible, idiotic rascals like this...

    anura 1 Thursday, 25 June 2015 11:21 AM

    A pathetic poor show by a foolish son of a useless politico who jumps from side to side to get the benefits. Dogs can bark ,but the mountains will not come down.
