    THIS IS A ANOTHER (HELPING HAMBANTOTA) PROJECT???

    RIFI Thursday, 18 November 2010 10:55 AM

    PLZ REMOVE MAGAMPURA AND USE ONLY MR PORT

    pandula Thursday, 18 November 2010 10:57 AM

    I dont know that why MR is behaving like this. One time came to divert water by spending lots of countries money but water filled after very long time then he came for another to welcome Sri Lankan Jetliner which is hired by port authority. Please explain what do you want to say to Sri Lankans.

    ruwan Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:00 AM

    It seam's speaker suprised to see name of the port ....?

    Asitha Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:01 AM

    Great development marked by a not so great celebration

    DXB Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:02 AM

    Good Job Well Done !!!

    Even Premadasa did not name any development on his name while he was alive , but he expected to do so after his death .

    MR is well aware the quality of us that we have very short memory ....he knows great leaders were just forgotten after their demise , that might be the reason he name it by his name while he is alive . ....

    Nilantha Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:04 AM

    Great development will start here at Magampura...

    Nishantha Rajapakse Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:08 AM

    please get rid of the "MAHINDA RAJAPAKSA PORT" sign before it gets removed seriously!

    May the triple gem bless the port of Megampura and may it also bring prosperity to Sri Lanka, especially the deserving South.
    Mahinda Sir, can you please do something about judicial independence and corruption? That just might be the lasting legacy you can leave for your beloved country.

    eresh.S.kumara Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:16 AM

    Wel done sir.this is the development .we are really proud of you Mr.

    Hasiya Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:17 AM

    Don't talk nuisance at this precious occasion...!!

    Hasiya Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:18 AM

    Pandula, U r just a typical negative thinker!

    Mansam Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:18 AM

    I wonder whether you are a sri lankan?

    Hasiya Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:19 AM

    Truly great achievement!

    ramfer Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:23 AM

    Well better if the port was built on strong economic fundamentals such as an imminent increase in demand for port faculities. What you don't want is to erode your competitiveness in the main Colombo port which has a truly international service portfolio. As a side comment why do politicians thirst for personal glory and have their names made part of projects built with public funds?

    Hiru Friday, 19 November 2010 08:15 AM

    hehe.. I also agree

    Damith Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:34 AM

    DXB THINGS WILL CHANGE ONCE OPPOSITION TAKE OVER THE COUNTRY

    Ranjan Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:40 AM

    Yes MR also has very very sort memory, he forgot his ex-party leader in party AGM and forgot his Army commander after end of war.

    chami Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:45 AM

    Hasiya, Simply you don't understand.

    real heart Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:53 AM

    Well done sir.

    MagodisThuma Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:54 AM

    This is the second shot....
    First one was into the forehead of Prabakaran !

    Yehiya-Doha Thursday, 18 November 2010 11:55 AM

    Premadasa not with the professional team. His mistake is still lead to UNP problems. Oterwise still UNP in power.

    Senaka Wickramasingh Friday, 19 November 2010 09:26 AM

    Well done Sir. Ignore the jealous comments by those who do not want to see any development projects in their own motherland.

    Dilrukshi Mahanama Thursday, 18 November 2010 12:21 PM

    Like that, MR wouldn't have killed Praba. That is a Bombay looking Culcatta shot !!!

    King Kong Thursday, 18 November 2010 01:05 PM

    Rohan Friday, 19 November 2010 10:01 AM
