UNP National Leader Ranil Wickramesinghe challenged President Mahinda Rajapaksa for a debate on the critical issues faced by the country and its people.

He threw this challenge while speaking at a meeting organised by the Rakwana UNP electoral organisation, at the Farm Land Hotel, in Godakawela on Saturday. 
 
“I can prove to the country the failure of the government to reduce the cost of living and give relief to the people. I can also prove the collapse of free education and free healthcare services in the country. Further, I can    prove the government’s failure in preserving democracy, law and order and the rule of law among other social issues, He said.
 
“I don’t know if the President will agree to this challenge. If such a debate is arranged, I’ll prove that the President has already electrocuted the people on a chair.(Sujith Mangala De Silva)

    MR will never come. He did not come even when GSF challenged for a public debate during 2010 Presidential election.

    Ranil is educated and intelligent.But occasionally he tends to make blunders.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 03 February 2014 04:01 AM

    You cannot even stand for a open debate with your own guys, how can you challenge a Legend?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 03 February 2014 04:00 AM

    Are you capable to challenge Mahinda Rajapakshe. Can you act like Mahinda?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 03 February 2014 03:59 AM

    First of all you must learn to talk like MR, you talk like a Baba and finally get disgraced.

    Jagath Leanage Monday, 03 February 2014 03:50 AM

    Ha , ha.................................Will have "kalu koopi" (Black Coffee) while having the debate?

    L. perera Monday, 03 February 2014 03:06 AM

    Ranil must improve his paltry supporter base before he challenges his opponent to debate. Learn to crawl before walking - I say.

    Jumping Jacks Monday, 03 February 2014 02:49 AM

    ???????

    Prof Hemantha Wickra Monday, 03 February 2014 02:33 AM

    Planned by both?

    Nadi Karunaratne Monday, 03 February 2014 02:30 AM

    That would be worth watching but it won't happen. RW should persist with the request, morning, noon and night. Include SF and JVP.
