    This government is fast becoming the government who let down the people so badly and so quickly. I now have serious doubts about the honesty of our president. I never expected this.

    Ira Thursday, 26 February 2015 11:21 AM

    Ranil, We are not going to vote for you in the general election! Not MR either!

    Blessing Thursday, 26 February 2015 11:32 AM

    I think the "Yahapalanaya" people are being controlled by MR

    Gobba Thursday, 26 February 2015 11:42 AM

    Probably he is more qualified in this field, since he behaved like a thug on the Rugger field and outside of it too.

    Mr, Prime minister is this yahapalanaya or favoritism ?

    dennis Friday, 27 February 2015 11:37 AM

    This is not Yaha palanaya.... This is Grooha palanaya. He should be work for the natio not for his father. This is not right. Any deals ????

    de silva Thursday, 26 February 2015 12:00 PM

    We as voters who supported this government to come to power has lost the confidence at all.We like to know the Minister of Defence and the Primeminister ,which side you all are.Are you on peoples side or MR ,s side.Please explain us.I think if there is an election the people in this country must bring JHU and JVP to power and teach all these thirdclass politicians a lesson that they will never forget.

    Bubble Banda Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:06 AM

    Wrong decision taken by the Government. Now RW it trying to build a close relation with the dirty fellow MR. Shame.... shame.... shame.....

    Kiris Baba Amaray Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:07 AM

    Is MS becoming lunatic allowing such things to happen.

    Desmond Jeromme Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:08 AM

    Should not allow this JVP get into street, this will be a plus point for you to win more seats in the Parliament and sit as a Main Opposition.

    Horri Jimonis Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:10 AM

    I can not believe what ms has done this is ridiculous .I may not want with you.

    Maraya Thursday, 26 February 2015 07:05 PM

    How come Yositha still being an officer in SL Navy when he does not have the qualification. Why cant action been taken to remove him by Yahapalanaya, is it only a different rule for Gen.Sarath Fonseka to be adopted by former regiment.

    johan Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:30 AM

    Not a wise decision who is behind this
