The main opposition UNP today expressed hope that the visit of its leader Ranil Wickremesinghe to India would bring positive results with regard to jailed former Army commander Sarath Fonseka.

“We hope India will request the Sri Lanka government to release Fonseka, “ UNP MP and former Foreign Affairs minister Mangala Samaraweera told a news conference today.

He said the Sarath Fonseka’s issue is included in Mr. Wickremesinghe’s agenda on his current visit to India. (YP)

    Big in size is not only criteria to become big brother

    Fayad Monday, 30 May 2011 06:10 AM

    Getting SF release is a good move, but if you go behind India for each & very thing we are heading for Big Trouble.

    In Europe there are small countries they don't go behind UK for every move they know if you depend on them you are heading for trouble. .

    You need the help of the Big Brother as the small brother go beyond control.

    Maidan Monday, 30 May 2011 06:34 AM

    Fayad, India is our big brother. So we cannot by pass them.

    Bumba Monday, 30 May 2011 06:31 AM

    This is a good move by the UNP. The Indian government is not very happy with the non professional way Sri Lanka is administered at present.

    dxb Monday, 30 May 2011 06:33 AM

    This is not a good sign .... it will create more problem for the soverignity than SF release ..... Further it is clear that though Ranil , Mahinda & SF all are in age of 60 plus the are not matured enough to sort out our own issues .... Dears are going to wolf to have the problem sorted out !!!!

    NADARAJAH SETHURUPAN Monday, 30 May 2011 06:39 AM

    no more Pakistan?

    MediaKolla Monday, 30 May 2011 07:03 AM

    UNP as usuall running to other countries...

    When father bullies children, the mother asks the next door gentleman to advice father. This is motherly love.

    NADARAJAH SETHURUPAN Monday, 30 May 2011 07:20 AM

    We can solve our own problems: MR ?

    RW Monday, 30 May 2011 07:33 AM

    Ranil has a big brain although he does not know how to become the President. Otherwise how can he continue to be the leader of the party while losing some 20 elections continuously.

    gona Monday, 30 May 2011 07:37 AM

    We must have India for every think.Good or bad he is our brother with out him we can not do any think.You have to be good with your nabours.

    Konde Bendapuchhena Monday, 30 May 2011 07:45 AM

    Double Game

    misunderstood Monday, 30 May 2011 07:56 AM

    if SF is released Ranil will face another challenge!!! SF wil not be an issue to be discussed in India for sure!!!!!

    Vijayabahu Monday, 30 May 2011 07:58 AM

    Lease of General Fonseka cannot categorize as small thing.. Its our BIG concern... Politicians MUST correct mistakes they made..

    Doha Boydohaboy Monday, 30 May 2011 07:58 AM

    Pakistan should be kept awy from our affairs to keep the WEST HAPPy... that may be the onlly way of survival for some

    Mohamed Faazil Monday, 30 May 2011 08:03 AM

    it is really good, if they request to release the war Hero from the jail.

    Mohamed Faazil Monday, 30 May 2011 08:03 AM

    I Hussein Monday, 30 May 2011 08:29 AM

    I think its a good idea provided India takes it seriously. But India is happy with UPFA at present for good reasons.

    Brenan Monday, 30 May 2011 08:52 AM

    This is unprofessiona. We are begging justice from another country to our own people.......

    Brenan Monday, 30 May 2011 08:55 AM

    Totally. He wont be released and india wont come in between thts for sure..our leaders are begging for what?

    shani Monday, 30 May 2011 09:51 AM

    The governments inability to do their main job properly, which is governing the country, invites third parties intervention. This is whats happening here. Ranil is not the best but seemingly better at diplomacy than anyone in the Govt

    Roshan Monday, 30 May 2011 09:58 AM

    India will not help, it is India who framed SF saying that he is trying to topple the Govt.
