    What a gentleman Dudley was!

    Dr.Libra Sharil Saturday, 04 August 2012 07:14 AM

    Sri Lanka can never dream of having politicians like Father of the nation D.S.Senanayake and son Dudley.They are great people to be remembered.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 04 August 2012 06:59 AM

    Unarguably, the best political leader we ever had in this country, although ungrateful people vilified him too and then regretted when he passed away. One would never see such an honest politician in this country any more.

    He is praised by many,but he is the one who start the racial politics.even he is from a Mudhliyaar family,his politics was based on Sihala budhists nationalism.he robbed the Tamil land,education,self dignity etc.and make a wound amongs the Tamil and Sihalese relation-it cant be cured.(Don stephen senanayake-a prominent Christian*******their ancesters betrayed the motherland and given birth to illegitimate children)

    PRIOR TO 77 POLITICIANS GOT SOMETING IN COMMON
    "THEY CLEARLY HAD PATRIOTISM IN THEIR SOULS"
    didnt they face difficulties within and out ?

    Good politicians almost extincted in SL - Almost
    If there are any they too are inactive in politics.

    Real gentleman, To day's leaders in both sides can follow him. People of all nationalities respect late Mr Dudly Senanayake.

    great leader, corruption free leader. unforgettable leader,
    leader of poorest.

    We will never forget his services and no one can replace him.

    Imran Hussein Saturday, 04 August 2012 10:11 AM

    and we are still paying for that terrible mistake done in the 70s (for two kilos rice from the moon). A true Gentleman.

    Some one related to me that Dudley visited Trincomalee in 1968 without a single body guard or security. Can a PC member go around nowadays without any escort?

    Where Ranil. If rukman follow the advise of JR. today leadership with him.

    Did "world renowned historian, Professor John Holt William R Kenan Jnr." really blame the Pol Pot/Khmer Rouge genocide on Cambodian Buddhists? The KR regime was completely anti-Buddhist, destroying temples, eliminating scriptures and literature, and killing almost all monks to return Cambodia to Year Zero.
