While claiming that the Government was trying only to protect itself by creating a rumpus on the upcoming UNHRC sessions in Geneva, UNP Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella challenged Ministers Mahinda Samarasinghe and G.L. Peiris to an open debate to make people aware about the real consequences of the UNHRC session.

“The UNHRC resolutions are not against the country or our army. Resolutions are against the government. This is why the Government was attempting to protect and strengthen it by deceiving the public. I’m ready to tell the people the truth behind this façade and to show them that it was the government that had betrayed the country and its people,” Kiriella told a news conference today.

He charged that the government was attempting to gain sympathy from the people in the guise of showing that the UNHRC resolutions were being brought against the country and not against them so that they could turn it to their advantage during the upcoming elections. (LSP)

    You always shouting. We remember your statements during the war. Now no one in this country listen to you. Better you keep mouth shut. That will help the UNP to come in to the power early.

    This K*riella would never grow. UNP doesn't need other enemies as long as these parasites represent it.

    Whether you believe or not what Mr Kiriella says is correct. Nobody (except uneducated voters in SL) trust this government because they are liars and they've prove it to world with tarnishing county's image. Once this regime is gone everything will be alright and Sri Lanka can get her glory back as "pearl of indian ocean" .This corrupt government has made it "drug hub of the indian ocean" .
