    Minister on fast unto death makes more mileage than a mere MP

    Geronimo Friday, 09 July 2010 12:18 PM

    No wonder Mervyn has booked a seat at kanatte.Wimal has stolen the script from him!!!!!!

    Imthiyaz Friday, 09 July 2010 02:04 PM

    Mr.Minister you have to act before 20 years ago.

    perumal Friday, 09 July 2010 02:50 PM

    No, No, the main actor is abroad. Wimal is the supporting actor

    Dr Wickramatillake Friday, 09 July 2010 04:15 PM

    Is President a statesman? He can prove it right now...

    Will sanity ever prevail in SL?

    RajasH Friday, 09 July 2010 05:46 PM

    Diversionary tactics to distract the masses from their economic woes!

    jamaldeen Saturday, 10 July 2010 05:23 AM

    good for teledramas, he is making a point to stabilise his seat in the parliament. well done ww.

    karai Kattai Saturday, 10 July 2010 06:38 AM

    Drma continues. Wimal is the hero, President is the Director and the audience are the Sri Lankan citizens.

    Menaka Friday, 09 July 2010 11:03 AM

    When is the other actor (Merv) coming in???Drama of the Year!!!

    Godaya Friday, 09 July 2010 10:13 AM

    Act number 12 in the tele drama.

    Hassen Friday, 09 July 2010 10:14 AM

    Its the Banana Republic for you - anything could happen!

    Smart Aleck Friday, 09 July 2010 10:14 AM

    Ha! Ha!Ha! What a Merry-Go-Round! Now who is bluffing whom?

    Mawbima Friday, 09 July 2010 10:17 AM

    All these are a preplanned & well rehersed drama. Don't expect people to believe all these stories to be real. Wimal will stand a good chance in Bollywood & in Hollywood as well.

    Nihal Fernando Friday, 09 July 2010 10:24 AM

    I think Ban Ki-Moon will follow suit.

    Visaran Friday, 09 July 2010 10:26 AM

    what next ? stopping fasting by president's request.

    Mahasona Friday, 09 July 2010 10:28 AM

    We expect his boss to make a dramatic appearance on the same stage in the next episode. Stay tuned...

    roshan raz Friday, 09 July 2010 10:59 AM

    the oscar award for the best actor goes to ...wimal

    the oscar award for the best supporting actor goes to......

    Gunda Friday, 09 July 2010 10:13 AM

    Written, directed and produced by the same party. So no surprises.

    SW Friday, 09 July 2010 11:06 AM

    Script never changes, next assignment is a more lucrative ministry.

    Bluff Bluff Friday, 09 July 2010 11:11 AM

    Fooling the masses!

    Uragodage Friday, 09 July 2010 11:13 AM

    Please behave your good selves as responsible people even a child will understand what is happening

    Thisara Wickramanaya Friday, 09 July 2010 11:16 AM

    Wimal may be right or wrong, may staging a drama or not. But Can Ban Ki Moon appoint a committee to investigate Sri Lankan affair by passing all the diplomatic rules and without the consent of the UN Security Council? And why not did the same for Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel and Guanthanamo Base prison? Shake your empty, hypocrite heads and think again.

    Saradial Friday, 09 July 2010 11:57 AM

    This is too early to announce Mr Precedent, there is no thrill.

    Thomas Friday, 09 July 2010 11:58 AM

    It is everything is very clear to all the stage managed acting

    Rattapakse Friday, 09 July 2010 12:07 PM

    No wonder why Dr Silva reserved his grave.....

    mewan Friday, 09 July 2010 12:09 PM

    Thumbs up machan. All these colombians are brain washed by western ideologies.
